Scrap Jar Stars - One More!

One of the things I love about my Scrap Jar Stars is the crisp Kona White background I am using.  I've ordered a couple of charm packs of Kona White the last couple of Black Fridays when they were free (!) from Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Can't pass that up, right?!  So I started out making my Scrap Jar Star blocks using the remains of the first charm pack from a couple years ago.



I was able to make the first four blocks out of those leftover charm squares of the white, but then I needed to get out another one to start my fifth star.


But, uh oh!  It turned out to be a charm pack of Kona Snow!  I love Kona Snow, but I really wanted to keep to the Kona White for all of these blocks!  Fortunately, my local Hobby Lobby carries quite a few Kona solids, at a very good price, and they had some when I got over there, so I am now all stocked up! So I was able to make the second brown and pink star for this quilt.


And here are all of the stars I've made so far.




I like how these are coming together!  Linking up to Scrap Happy Saturday at So Scrappy.

A great collection of blocks. It is amazing how many whites there are and they really do not mix well. Glad you got more. Good old Hobby Lobby!

I love these stars and the little square they form when they are joined - so pretty!
Gosh I didn't know Hobby Lobby carried Kona. :-O I've always gone to JoAnn's to get mine, and my Hobby Lobby is much more convenient than JoAnn's.

I like the secondary design which is coming through when you put all those stars together. They will be great when they are all done.

The corner design is my favorite part about your block. So glad you found some white fabric. I've been tricked into using snow accidentally as well and it really does make a difference in the end.
