16 Patch with wonky stars - Building Blocks Tuesday

I finished up these 16 patches with wonky stars for my We Bee With it Bee.  Celeste asked for one in scrappy pinks and one in scrappy blues and greens.

It's funny.  Not too long ago, I would have cringed at a block like this.  Not because it is difficult, but because I didn't have that many "quilt shop quality" scraps to complete blocks like this.  I would have had to cut into yardage for one silly 3.5 inch square (times 15 colored fabrics for each block - yikes!).  But, I am happy to report that I have now made enough quilts, in enough colors, that I have a decent scrap pile.  These blocks don't make me cringe anymore!

Last chance to enter my 500 follower giveaway if you haven't already done so!  You can enter by leaving a comment on this post.  I'm drawing a winner on March 20th!  Good luck!

What blocks have you working on this week?  I would love to see.  Link up your fabulous blocks.  You put a lot of hard work into them - show them off!  This free linky will stay open until the first Monday of next month, but I will repost it every Tuesday until a new month starts.

1) Please link up only to the page in your blog showing your wonderful blocks, not just the blog homepage.  Flickr pictures are also OK.
2) Make sure to put your blog name as the description so people know where they are going or the name of your block!
3) Please grab my button and post it in your blog post or sidebar.
4) Visit other linky participants!

Thanks for reading,



  1. These look great Jen! Congrats on passing the 500 follower mark!

  2. Hi Jen, your scrappy star blocks are really wonderful! Love them. Thank you for sharing. Annett

  3. Those are great blocks! I love the colors, especially the blues. I am just in the process of quilting a sweet 16 scrap quilt. Too bad I did not see this block earlier! I will have to keep it in mind for next time.


I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
