pink and gray.

It all started with these blocks.
4 patches.
I told you I love that old gray fabric.
What can I do with these??

I've got some scraps. Don't you??
I can make some start points.
You can see I'm not too exacting on those triangle star points.
They're all a little different.
Just lay that scrap on the white rectangle and sew it down!
I'll just trim the excess.



Here are some lurvely stars!
I made 20 this weekend!!


I also had some little half triangles that I trimmed off of
those stars.
These are all squared up to 2 1/2".




They will make a nice border for this quilt!!
Happy Monday!
Are you all avoiding the holiday to-do list like me
and making unnecessary quilts??

  1. There is no such thing as an unnessary quilt. You are getting your trunck show ready. In fact, what a good idea. Do you know who is programs chair at QBS next year?

  2. We DO have many similarities! I've got a special soft spot for grays, too, and have a nice little stash of them waiting for me to give them attention.

    Love yours paired with the pinks. Even though it's subdued, the blocks make me think of an old-fashioned porch swing on a spring night.

  4. W-a-y too cute sista!! I love pink and gray....a few months back I bought some of what I call 'muddy gray'fabrics that had little tiny flowers...I had no plan for them...
    just thought they were cute. And of course I
    love your star designs!!
