Not your typical stars and stripes

No red, white and blue here, just lovely pastels and charming blue stars with rose centers.  Kind of like a banner for spring.

I just made the last star block and couldn't wait to show it off.  The charm squares came from a forgotten corner of my stash closet.  I can't remember where they were purchased - maybe from the Sewing with Nancy store site.  I know they're not Moda or any brand I recognize.  I have a whole ziplock bag full of them, from several groups.  I've sorted out others for different small quilt designs.  Stay tuned.

My aim is to stockpile 6 or 7 small quilt tops and go on a machine quilting binge later this spring.
