Maverick Stars!!



I am on my way to the Atlanta Georgia area to teach workshops and give lectures and trunk shows to 3 Atlanta area guilds! As I was writing instructions for a crumb block workshop, I decided to upload these instructions for all! Maverick Stars are made from the meagerest of scraps, but pop with personality! Make yourself some Maverick Stars today!

Bonnie,Bonnie...You come up with such fun blocks that I'll be 102 before I get to even half of your blocks. These are just so cute!! I just have a hard time believing that so many different things can be made from scraps. Your a true genius.
By the way the name that comes up when I respond to your blogs is Skip. That's my hubby, and I just can't figure out how to change the name to mine. Oh well..no big deal.
Have a great time on your upcoming ventures..Fran

Thank you so much for posting the instructions for these! I've seen the star above the quilt mavrics web-ring, and for what ever reason I couldn't quite figure out how they were done, now I know. I am a huge fan of scrap quilts so I KNOW I'll be making some of these :cD Thanks!!

Dawn said...

Oh I have always wanted to make maverick stars! Yeah!!!!!

BrendaS said...

Great stars! I was making something similar last week from my box of two-inch squares. I like the wonkiness of yours. And glad to hear you got my package of houses and lobsters. that fabric has bordered a very scrappy string quilt and I was happy to pass on the leftovers.

Ohh, I love the Maverick star! How tempting this is. But.....I'm in the middle of too many projects at present. Will save the directions for another time as I'd love to make it with my multitude of scraps! Thanks!

Paula said...

Maverick stars are even easier than "Uneven Stars"! Love it!

Sue said...

Darn it! I'm trying not to start any new projects until I finish up a bunch of old ones, but how can I resist that? Too cute!

Sherry said...

I'm going to make some of those Maverick stars. Thanks Bonnie, you always share the most fun quilting ideas! Have a safe & fun trip!

I will put this one on the agenda for the future. Just start sewing them as I am working on other things. I have so many of the triangle pieces from bindings, trims from hst, etc.

Nann said...

Another great concept! Thanks for the instructions, Bonnie. (I could piece happing for years on your patterns alone.)

Nann said...

....that is, I could piece "happily"....

FabricMom said...

I love your Maverick Star blocks! What a creative way to use scraps. I'm a huge scrap quilt lover! Thanks so much for the instructions. Jeez, I just added another future project to my list. Eeks! Like I don't have enough already?!? Oh, well, only other quilters understand this dilemma. LOL! :o)
