I have actually finished all the alternate squares and can add them to the star blocks

 

This isn’t all of the blocks as I have already sewn three rows together so they are not included.

I also had a couple of great buys on EBay. First up, 501 Quilt Blocks is a lovely book with a lot of lovely blocks I hadn’t seen before. Some of the applique blocks are a bit twee and the alphabet letters are distinctly underwhelming but the rest are great. I will spend many hours perusing this book

The second book, American Patchwork and Quilting, has more in the way of patterns and instructions rather than blocks. It gives it’s age away by the use scissors rather than a rotary cutter but it is very informative despite that. There are some inspiring antique quilts that might be the starting point for my next scrap quilt

I will be linking up with So Scrappy with everyone else who has joined in this years rainbow scrap challenge, why not pop over and have a look for yourself – and maybe join in next year!

    Hi Kay! I am replying here to your blog comment as you came up as a no-reply blogger! Ugh! Another problem with Blogger! Thanks fro stopping by my blog! Even though I don’t get as many comments as I used to, I still enjoy the opportunity to share with like-minded people.
    I love this quilt- a wonderful combination of stars (my favourite) and an Irish chain! I also have that 501 Quilt Blocks book- its a beauty!

  4. What a gorgeous quilt. I love star blocks and your choice of fabrics is perfect. I can’t imagine how difficult patchwork would be with scissors. Thank goodness for rotary cutters! Happy New Year to you 🙂
