I am entering this quilt in the Original Design Quilt Category.
I fell in love with the center fabric when I saw it online. When I got it I pulled the other fabrics from my stash to make the blocks. I wanted to highlight the center fabric so just cut a piece of that to surround with the star blocks.
I picked out 4 of the brands in the fabric to applique in the 4 corners of the quilt.
In the middle boarder I even used the scraps from the half square triangles cut from the star blocks.
No scraps were left behind:)
