The making of a Quilt for Quiltmaker... blog #2

I love playing with fabric. 

As I have been putting together this Quilt for Quiltmaker's Back to School Party, I have had the opportunity to play with some delicious fabric. 

Part of the pattern that I have put together for this project requires that a lot of triangles get cut away and discarded thus creating "bonus triangles". Being a Scrap Quilter, I am not one to discard fabric easily, so I decided to play a little with the extra triangles I had from the Quiltmaker project.

I started by taking my bucket full of bonus triangles...

... and I sewed them all together.

I trimmed them down to 2 inches square.

I had a total of 12 colors combined with a beautiful chocolate brown.

So I put those together and made them into an 8 pointed star.

I have made 6 stars that finish at 6" square.

I have put a strip of chocolate brown in between each block and I will be placing the stars on the back of my quilt as my signature.

Quilting will begin tomorrow. :)
