This week's block for Miniquilt Monday was too big for my red and white project. It is a beautiful block, so you can easily be tempted to do it. I'm collecting 6" blocks, so I found one of the earlier blocks, The Maple Star Block. I made two scrappy stars.
My scraps typically are smaller than 2", but I found a box with 6" red scraps. As these blocks are so small, I can get many blocks from those scraps. I also have scraps of that light fabric, off cuts from the back side of quilts I've handed over to my longarm quilter. So this quilt will not end up as scrappy as my works usually are.
