Checkedy Stars

Back in February Amber Johnson of "A Little Bit Biased" blog posted a link to a Scrap Jar Star Quilt
http://alittlebitbiased.blogspot.com/2012/02/scrap-jar-stars-quilt.html .  I immediately knew I had to do that quilt.  Leanne from the blog, Lizzie the Quilter, was doing hers in I would say "pretty" scraps, florals, jewel tones etc.  I knew I was going to copy cat hers and do mine the same way.  I did start collecting scraps as I worked on different projects and then last month I decided after seeing Amber's red white and blue quilt that I needed to start mine.  So, the cutting and assembling started.  I was connecting the center pieces as leader/enders and then when my bin runneth over, I started pressing and assembling.  So...tonight since I had the house to myself I did some more work on the stars and here's what I have......
I have 16 blocks done and to get an 81 x 93 quilt I need 20 more plus separator strips.  This is my 2012 summer project. 
I have another project I need to concentrate on next week so this one will be set aside for a bit.....
This is one project where I used up quite a bit of scraps but as everyone says..."will I ever use up my whole scrap bin?"   Probably not  :)

Only 2 work days next week!!!  YAY!
