Smaller Star Struck

Suddenly I just had to try making a smaller copy of the Star Struck block. Left is the Star Struck block Bonnie taught us. Right is a smaller version made with 1.5" strips and squares instead of 2.5" strips and squares.

Perhaps I will put on a plain border of blue and then another border of a few of those hundreds of red and white waste/bonus HSTs I have left over from Bonnie's other projects. Then it can go into the Guild "Small Quilt Auction".

I found a stack of 10.5" backing squares that I'm not using lately, and got out a box to send them to Virginia of Bumble Beans for her homeless project. Then I spent some more time cutting up more 10.5" strips into blocks to fill up the box more fully. Then a quick trip to the Post Office, and they're GONE!


Charlie suddenly is gone overnight. He went to Memphis with a friend from church who is moving there, and needed a companion driver. This is the kind of thing one can do once retired from regular employment!



Kathie's birthday party for dinner tonight
Tho' this is a "rest day", I got in 5000 steps
A little more space on my fabric shelves where the 10.5" squares were

Oooo, I like the small stars--how great to use things up!

Both Star Struck quilts are great but there is just something about going smaller that ups the cuteness factor! Good for you for your donation blocks.
