This week I cut more blue fabrics into strips for my scrap bins. I also made up a couple of red & blue strip sets, which will make two more scrappy string stars. This strip set started with 4 strips 1-1/2" wide x 18-20" long and 2 strips 2" wide x 18-20" long.
I cut 45 degree diamonds from freezer paper to use as cutting templates and ironed them to the strip set, leaving space next to each diamond.
The next two photos show the leftovers after the diamond shapes were cut out. The leftovers were sewn together along the outside edges, and the middle seams were taken out, which made it possible to cut another set of diamonds.
Once the diamonds are cut out, it's time to play with all the different layouts. I think I like the arrangements in the last two photos best.
