I am going to add a brown print border next, then the triangles, then another slightly larger brown print border. I am off now to figure out how large to make the next border so that the triangles fit perfectly. Wish me luck!!
PS: This is 43" x 70" in the picture.
I know Susanna loves fruit, so I asked her if she wanted to arrange the fruit on our fruit pizza. She is always going a step beyond the expected to make things special. Here is the way SHE puts fruit on a pizza. The crust is sugar-cookie like and it is topped with softened cream cheese beat with XXX sugar. Mmm-mmm.
Once I got it sewn all together I realized I had one more block (how did THAT happen), and I realized I wanted it longer than the original 12 anyway. So I cut out two more blocks. I am in the process of piecing them now, but had to make a cheesecake, a fruit pizza, drumsticks, and rice for supper. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
I have decided on a clever (I hope) outer border after a floating border...stay tuned for the outcome. Daily life has overcome me many a day recently, so don't expect the progress to be quick.

Playing around with a different layout for the Scrappy Stars. I didn't like the dark brown sashing, but I am going to use that fabric in the border of the quilt. I STILL have not found my original magazine, but I like the HST border in the original pattern. I found it on All People Quilt, so I *have* the pattern.
What do you think of this setting? I'd have to make two more blocks to have 3 x 5 blocks. A good throw size.
