{Post 1,512} Triangle-Pieced Wonky Stars


Bonnie Hunter saves the day again.  On her blog, there is a tutorial for Maverick Stars that uses triangles to piece what I think of as wonky stars.  Click here to see it.  http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/maverick-stars.html

Here is the result from yesterday and this AM:


I am a scrappy girl at heart.  My least favorite block is the top left original one.  All the background matches and all points are uniform.  My favorite is the bottom right...pieced center block with all different of everything.

I keep my tiny scraps in a shoebox-sized storage box under my desk.  I just throw the scraps in there when I have them.  These are very small pieces!  I figure I'll cut the 2-1/2" square centers from prints and outer squares from creams as I have them.  If all else fails, I'll cut off a bolt!  What???  Is that even possible, LOL.

I love the scrappy look myself and the wonky stars are looking great. Just like a quilter...to use up as much as we can and to never throw away. You can always find a spot for the smallest piece somewhere!

I have made a few wonky stars for corners on an I spy quilt. Are you going to make a whole quilt out of them? BTW, I have a quilt top that I made (wall hanging) and am thinking about putting it up for auction or sale on Ebay. Any advice? I think you have sold quilt tops before.
