Star Doll Quit


This is the first project I made with my newly cut scraps. It was wonderful to just pick the pieces and they were all cut to size. It took about 10 min to pull the block pieces and I was ready to start sewing. The center squares are 2.5" before sewing. The corners of the blocks are 1.5" squares. For the star points units I used 1.5"x 2.5" bars. I sewed 1.5" squares across the corners folded them over (like a flying geese unit) . I used 2.5" strips for the borders. I still can't believe how easy it is to sew using my newly organized and cut scraps.

This one is my favourite doll quilt. I love sawtooth stars, and I love the coordinated use of scraps.
