Fun with Stars For Linus

I’ve recently accumulated 7 blocks from Stars for Linus donations, but was 5 blocks shy having enough for a top. Late last week, I remedied that!

I thought I’d give the Wonky Star (also known as Maverick Star) a try so I pulled out some scraps and started piecing.!

“Wings” added to the 4 1/2″ squares for star points.

Tada! This quilt was donated to The Linus Connection on Saturday, March 17, 2012.

I will continue to collect Stars For Linus indefinitely. Remember, Stars need to be 12 1/2″ (unfinished)!
