Sawtooth Stars in Pink

I knew early on that I wouldn't have much sewing time this week, so I decided to spend the little time I did have stitching up a couple more Floral Sawtooth Stars.  Part of my plan for this project is to make the stars in different sizes and then find a fun way to combine them into a quilt.

Amy, at Diary of a Quilter has a great tutorial and very helpful size chart HERE that I've been using for this project.

This week I started with a 9.5 inch star, and added a border around it to bring the whole block to 12.5  inches.


I always start with the center floral fabric, and then choose the corner square and flying geese fabric to go with the center.  Lucky me, I chose some pink this time, which turns out to be the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for May!

Just for fun I decided to make a little 4.5 inch star, too.


These two are kind of fun together!


And here are all of my 12.5 inch blocks so far.
