Star Surround Quilt Along - Cutting

It's time to cut up our fabrics for the Star Surround Quilt Along over at the Happy Quilting blog.

After some mulling and a bit of advice over in the Flickr group, I decided to make the green and purple polka dot fabrics my star, the black and white fabric the surround, and my white on white check as the background. 

I'm going to make a 40" single star layout so I won't have to piece the back.  I also think this is a nice size for a baby quilt. 

You would be so proud of me.  After cutting my pieces - including my binding! - I cut my scraps into my standard sizes and put them all away.  What a concept!

It's not too late to jump in and join the fun! 


  1. Oh, even taking care of the scraps, that is awesome!! I should do that more often, I just throw mine in a basket to be dealt with later :) And I totally love 40" baby quilts, I think it is the perfect size :)


Thanks for joining the conversation!
