I am hand quilting a double row of fairly small Perle stitches around each star shape.
Pleased with the effect. I had already machine quilted either side of all the block joins so the quilt top is well anchored. No rush to finish this quilt so I am enjoying stitching whilst watching television or at my Quilt Group meetings.
I have now been gifted 2 lots of wedge shaped scraps. The wedges come in pairs, a solid and a tone on tone pattern for each colour. My friend Candy made yards and yards of pennant shaped bunting to decorate the reception area for her granddaughter's wedding last year. She and her daughter are now turning the bunting into a quilt for Olivia. So I have been given the scraps which are around 6" long, the wedge is approx. 3" (they differ slightly!) at the widest point of the wedge. I don't want to leave them like this in a bag because I know they will just stay there forever. I had wondered if I could arrange them into Dresden-style circles, but haven't tried playing yet. I would normally cut scraps into usable sized squares (1.5", 2", 2.5" ) but I would waste more than I would be using.
Any ideas on how best to use them? Suggestions would be very welcome!
