Scrap Jar Stars for May

The last of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks for May are the Scrap Jar Stars.  As I always make a light star and a darker star for each color of the month, it has been fun looking through my scraps and stash for the perfect greens for these blocks.  I made the first one with my favorite, spring-y greens.


I love these little guys, and they were perfect for this star!


The darker star is still being finished up, but there are a few days left in May, right?!  You can tell my fabric choices were way different for this one, as they don't even want to show up as green in my photo.  I really wanted a try at including more of the evergreen forest colors.


I had to see what the nine completed stars look like together. I love the bright green added into the mix!


And one more from a different angle.  I saw someone else's stars being sewn together in this type of setting earlier this week.


Wishing everyone a delightful Memorial Weekend, the first weekend of summer!  We, here in Colorado, are starting out with cold, wind, and some pretty severe storms.  Hopefully, it will feel a bit more summery soon!

Linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday.

  10. It is amazing what a different effect the two shades of green have. Love the bright and happy one, of course, but the darker one will bring a nice depth to the finished quilt. The secondary pattern in the corners of the blocks is so much fun.
