Maverick Stars, WIP

How do I expect to deplete my fabric stash when I'm playing with little squares of 2 1/2 inches? ... and triangles at half that size? But it's so cute ... many thanks to http://www.joscountryjunction.com/ for her photo June 18, of her quilt (and her beagle) that I just plain copied! Yes, I am guilty, but how could I make one better than hers?

There are rows of stars, in my case the star rows are made of one fabric, but the sashing stars are made of anything from medium to dark that was in the bin. Very clever! I'll make it larger and might put some free form words in the border. This is just a plain ole old-timey quilt -- absolutely NO sophistication to it.

By the way, Jo has some amazing purse ideas, made with very unusual materials, and despite what she uses for their construction, they are CUTE!

I like this plain old-timey quilt! Stars are always great, and scrappy makes them even better. Nice!

WOW...It is really coming together. I love mine....in fact the whole family does. My kiddos are fighting over it ALL the time. It's in our living room and they use the GIANT quilt as a throw. The way your are piecing you will be done with it in no time.

I have some maverick stars that you have inspired me to pull out and finish something. And thanks for the chiropractic plug, so glad to hear one of my own has helped you so much.

I can't believe the number of great quilts you turn out! I love this one! I know what you mean about the 2-1/2" pieces, but look how awesome! And lots of cool background lights as well!
