Oh Scrap! : Scrappy Stars

In the states, this weekend is our Memorial Day holiday.  A time to remember all those who died while serving in our armed forces.  I thought it was the perfect time to be working on some patriotic red, white and blue scrappy stars for a project I have been working on.

These blocks are 9 and 12 inches - I think I have about 6 of each to make.

What about you?  Have you been playing with your scraps?


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework
