Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars


And with these six inch Twinklers I now have 130+ - enough for a 60 x 78 quilt. 




I've been making these with my 2.5 scraps each month for a couple of years as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project. 

If you would like to make your own the original place I saw the block with instructions was at Claudia's Quilt Shoppe.   This would be easy to change for any size of scraps. And the best thing is that there are no points to match and they are quick to make (unless, like me, you only make a few a month). 

Lots of scraps have now found a home. Quilt top coming soon.

Okay! You have finally convinced me to make one. My guild makes quilts for PreK kids, and this would be perfect.

Proving once again that a little at a time gets you a beautiful quilt in the end. Great job!

A cute wee block. They look great as a rainbow of colour.

Those are really cool! I like that the star is "inverted", with the bright colours as the background, it's very effective. :)

These are really cute and a great way to use up all those squares! Can't wait to see the whole quilt come together!
