Star #32 and First Circle

This is one of four more stars to applique, now with two points stitched after watching "Downton Abbey" tonight.

Even though the stars are not "scrap" stars but are cut from whole pieces of fabric, some purchased specifically for the purpose, I like the scrappy, imperfect appearance of them.  I keep trying for more curved points but am only partially successful.

The plan was always to add several layers of circles.  I cut a few circles and placed them on the stars but before choosing fabrics and colors, I'll cut more and play.  But I think the one below is staying.  Will I miss seeing a whole star of one color?  Maybe....

I'm linking this post to Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts and Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than Housework.  Thanks, ladies.



  1. I agree, that red star is a keeper! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  2. Love the subtle shades and the stripes and checks along with the stars and circles. Looking good ☺


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
