The other day I posted about some Flying Geese I've been making as a Rainbow Scrap Project since around March 2016. I mentioned I had no specific purpose in mind other than using up 4.5 inch scraps. Well, Nann (With Strings Attached) and Libby (Life on the Hill) commented that they make good star points. I wasn't even thinking of anything other than a Flying Geese layout of some sort but I thought Stars would be wonderful and use even more 4.5 inch scraps. So off I went to the sewing room to see what I could whip up and ended up with 18 sixteen inch stars just using the Geese I have been making for a couple of years and by cutting more 4.5 inch scraps for the center four patch and 4 corners.
I cut enough scraps for 7 more blocks and that will make a big and eclectic quilt of Wandering Geese Stars 80 x 80. I also pretty much wiped out most of the bright/dark 4.5 inch scraps in rainbow colors. I still have pink/turquoise, pastels, black, white/cream , mixed and brown to deal with but my box is much smaller and I know what's in it (for now).
My October OMG (One Monthly Goal) is to complete the seven blocks and then make a quilt top.
