A Scrappy Star Family with Tute

By March 9, 2015 May 5th, 2020 Blog, Scrap Busting, Tutorials

I had so sew much fun this weekend in Flaming Gorge.  I had taken several scrap projects after all playing in my scraps is one of my favorite things to do.  Combine that with great friends and good food, how could you not have a great weekend.

These scrappy stars came from leftovers from another project.  They work up fairly quickly so I thought I’d share the process.

From strips I used 1 1/2″ for the babies and the baby blocks will finish at 8″, 2 1/2″ for the mom mas I used 2 1/2″ and the mom mas blocks finish at 16″, for the daddy blocks I used 3 1/2″ and the blocks finish at 24″.  I used my Nifty Notions Ruler to cut my pieces.  I love this ruler because I can cut squares and triangles from the same strip and have everything fit together.

For each block from your strips cut

40- half squares from scraps

32- half squares from background

16- squares from scraps

8- squares from background

Sew two of the half square scraps together.  Make 4 of these for each block

A half square background and half square scrap together.  Make 32 of these for each block

Take two of the half square triangles with background and two background squares and arrange as shown in a four patch.  Sew together.  Make 4 of these for each block. Unit A

Take two of the half square triangles with background and two of the scrappy squares and arrange as shown in four patch.  Sew together.  Make 8 of these for each block. Unit B

Take two of the half square triangles with background and one with just scraps along with a background square and arrange as shown.  Sew together.  Make 4 of these. Unit C

Take one Unit A, two Unit B and, a Unit C and arrange as shown.  Sew together.  Make 4 of these.

Arrange these so the scrappy half squares meet in the middle as shown.  Sew together.

Hope you enjoy your scrappy stars.  Would love to see them if you make them so please let me know.
