New Scraptastic Stars Layout!!!

Thank you all so much for all of your help on deciding a favorite layout for my Scraptastic Stars quilt earlier this week!!! It was so helpful to have everyone's feedback!!!   And by far, that resounding thing I got was you all really liked Option B and Option D. 


  And so I decided why not try and combine both!!   I love that B keeps the chain going and is small so it doesn't distract, but I love that D has a complete chain , it just seems to get a little lots in that chunky sashing.   So I went back to EQ8 and kept the chain from D but made it skinnier so it won't get so lost, and then altered the border so it is a cleaner finish.    So what do you think??

I am so loving it!!!!  I think it is the perfect finish for these awesome blocks!!!   And someone suggested using a nice charcoal grey instead of black, Now I have one more decision to make.   Both are so awesome, only time will tell which color I end up using ;)

And it sounds like you were all big fans of this being turned into a pattern, so I will add that to my list of things to work on ;)  I am super excited because I think this would just be oh so fun to teach in a class setting!!!   We could talk Leaders and Enders, Sorting Scraps, and then piecing it all together!!  So great!!!

Thanks for your help and I hope you all are having a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Pin It!
