Scraps Create Richness in This Beautiful Quilt

A Fun Project for a Block Exchange!
Half-square triangles in a wide selection of fabrics create shimmering stars in this beautiful quilt. This is a wonderful project for scraps, which add depth and interest to the design.
The sawtooth border provides a nice finishing touch. Deep blue or black borders unify the quilt and help the colors to pop.
While you could make this quilt with yardage, take advantage of the variety offered by scraps. Divide them into dark, medium and light to make the stars stand out against the background.
The finished quilt, from Dianedkquilts’s Pattern Store, is 58″ x 58″. Adjust the size of the quilt by adjusting the number of star blocks.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
