Butterscotch Scrap Jar Stars

Since the minute I laid eyes on the Scrap Jar Stars at Trish's blog I have wanted to make a quilt like this for me. I've seen Darlene's version and watched Karin and Staci start theirs and each one is prettier than the next. My dilemma was I didn't know what fabrics to use and then it hit me. It was as plain as the nose on my face, or in this case, the fabric laying on my ironing board- Fall colors would be my choice.



These are the fabrics that were already on my ironing board. The butterscotch is a Moda Grunge Fabric from Basic Grey, and the pumpkin-y print is 3 yds. I picked up at Joanns last week. I love the look of these pumpkins - kinda mod retro.

So I sliced and diced and cut all the fabric I need for HST's and the little squares. I haven't finished cutting the background yet, but I'm getting there.


I started with a couple of charm packs from Deb Strain and Brenda Gervais, and added in left overs from other projects and pieces from my stash. Here are the wonderful piles I've been playing with.

And I've gotten 4 blocks sewn together - yippee! I love the way it looks.


I've been able to incorporate lots of different Fall fabrics - pumpkins, leaves, trees and even chickens.


So you ask what is Fall-ish about chickens? Ummmm..... I'm not exactly sure, but I know they belong in my quilt - LOL!

Happy stitching-
