I decided to make a few red, white, and blue stars for Covered in Love. You can find out more about Kat's July charity quilt/block drive at her blog, Kat and Cat Quilts. I decided to make Wonky Stars (some people call them Maverick Stars - does anyone know the difference?), and used this tutorial just to make sure I was on the right track to end up with 12 1/2 inch stars.
These stars are fast and fun to make - so fun, in fact, that I decided I wasn't done making them yet! So I made a couple more (6 inch blocks this time) - to go along with July's watermelon colors for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Then I turned them into some summery new mug rugs for our morning coffee spot out in the family room.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend! It's hot here - 97 degrees this afternoon - so I'm going to spend some more time down in the cool basement where my sewing room is! And tomorrow I'll be linking up to Oh Scrap! over at Cynthia's blog, Quilting is More Fun than Housework. See you there!
