A Pound of Stars A Pound of Stars
By: Karen H,
Ontario, Canada

This is one of my first quilts. There were no quilters, guilds or fabric shops where I lived. I bought a pound of scraps by mail order to make the stars & used white sheeting for the background. Close-ups are posted on my blog. This is one of my favourite quilts. It is entirely handmade.

How Many Stars does it take to Make a Quilt How Many Stars does it take to Make a Quilt
By: Debbie Lange Quilting,
Indiana, USA

I started making scrappy stars with a diamond template and fabric scraps. Once the stars were completed I needed to figure out how to join them. I thought there must be an easy setting, but I could not find one in any books, patterns or online instructions. So I used the same diamond template.

Fell in love with this design by Marianne Elizabeth. I did an Arabella Rose color way. First large quilt for me and lost my pattern in the middle. I still have a plain and floral border to go. It was a big project for me but I love anything with stars.

This was a mystery quilt that I did with my “Scrap Therapy” group that meets once a month. Since I am new to the group I did not have a bunch of scraps already cut….. so I picked about 30 plus fabrics from my stash and came up with this. So jokingly I said this was “Stash Therapy” for me.
