Today kicks off my Scrap Busting Challenge. For the month of January we will be letting our scraps shine in these Scrap Busting Stars. Make one or many. Share your progresson my Facebook community.
I chose to do my scrappy centers in low volume prints. I could barely put a lid on that bin. This little project helped me out. The lid not only fits! I have an inch of head room! Now that’s a miracle!
For this project you will need lots of 1 1/2″ strips. 3 1/2″ x 20″ for star points and 3 1/2″ x wof for background. Using the Essential Triangle Tool cut 8- half square triangles for your star points. and 4 quarter square triangles for background along with 4- 3 1/2″ squares. You can also easily cut this out with your Accuquilt Go cutter and the 1 1/2″ strip cutter and the 12″ Cube dies 2, 4, and 5.
Watch my Scrap Busting Star tutorial to create your own beautiful stars.

Thank you, I'm starting tomorrow.
I love a scrappy project and my scrap tub is overflowing!
You are in good company. Make sure to post your progress on the facebook group. I'd love to see your blocks and quilt
I love your scrapbusting stars! The are so pretty and scrappy.
I don't have the essential triangle tool. And really don't want another specialty ruler. I'm guessing I want triangles that finish at 3"?
