Fussy Cut Friday Stars

It's another Fussy Cut Friday over at Temecula Quilt Company blog.  Sheryl is having a year long sew along where we make one 6 pointed star each week.  


It's a mystery really because we won't know how these stars will be set together until the end of the sew along.  




The stars are 2 inches on a side.  My quilt will be scrappy, and I love making these fussy cut stars.  





I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Wow, your fussy cut stars are amazing!

These are so pretty, are they from chintz? Did you have this in your stash or buy fabric for this project?

It's just amazing and wonderful how a little fussy cutting can change the look of fabric. What great results you are achieving!

LuAnn, I bow down to your fussy cutting skills! fussy piecing? whatever - it's amazing. Love these

Sandy said...

YOur stars are simply stunning! I like that pink template you're using, where did you get that or did you make it? I have the one where you can only trace on the outside, but an inside stitching line would be helpful.

Charo said...

Awesome! How do you choose your fabrics to create such wonderful compositions? how do you know the picture, flower, star you are going to get in the centre?

Do you need special fabric?

I think I can't do such things with the fabric I have

Your stars are gorgeous! I can't wait to see how they all come together in a quilt. Jan from Sew and Soo Farms (5 days x 5 giveaways) sent me over to say hi, and I'm so glad that I did! What an inspiring blog you have!

Hi LuAnn,

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I finished four more DJ blocks that I have to blog about. Your DJ is beautiful and so are the rest of your quilts. I have to say, though, as someone who can't even manage to keep one blog up to date, I am in even more AWE of you maintaining FOUR blogs, all with recent postings and terrific content. WOW!!! I tip my hat to you.

Sincerely,
Susan in Texas

Janet said...

Your stars are delightful!! I just adore that first one. What a marvelous scrappy quilt these will make!

Rosemary Youngs said...

They are absolutely stunning, I cannot wait to see this quilt top come together. You definitely have a gift for putting those stars together.

Hi LuAnn!
These stars are beautiful. I esp love the green one. Do you know the name of that fabric? It is hard to find green to fussy cut!
