Bonus Quilt On the Horizon

A few days ago, I wrote about saving the cut away triangles from the Snowball blocks I am making with the intent of using them in some future, as yet-to-be-determined quilt. Today, I can report that I have a plan.

Friendship Star blocks have always appealed to me - actually, I love most star blocks - and these little 4.5" cuties will look wonderful in a quilt! I will stitch them with wild abandon, not concerning myself with matching blues, and go for a totally scrappy blue bonus quilt.

Just imagine what 105 little blue stars with neutral alternate blocks will look like. Enchanting! Why 105? Because that is how many Snowball blocks I will need for Snow Shoo, my current project.

This bonus quilt is gonna be so worth the extra time spent sewing now for the rewards I will reap later. Good philosophy!

Linking today with Needle and Thread Thursday.

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. This is going to be a cute quilt. A great way to use up those HST's.

  2. You are so right!! It is going to be wonderful!!

  3. A great idea indeed. Holding myself back from rushing to my bonus triangles bin and trying out a couple. They would have to be scrappy since the bin is chock-a-block full with no sorting done. hmm....
