New leader ender idea

     It is no secret I love scraps. I had cut some varied whites and creams into 2" squares and could use my tiniest scraps I save to make wonky stars. Most of the wonky stars I see are whites on solids. So, these may be backwards. I plan to keep making a ton and find a way to make a quilt out of them. I love Bonnie Hunter's Wonky Wishes, but hers are white stars. All of the stars are ironed on freezer paper so they stay together until sewn, but Jolene, the junior designer, chose and laid out all the colors on the paper.

I love that you have a junior designer on staff!! It's also a fantastic idea to iron pieces to freezer paper to hold them in place until they are sewn.

Excellent idea to iron unto freezer paper. Especially for those smaller pieces.
Your Jr designer has a good eye! Wonderful scrappy project.

Nice stars. I'd never seen pieces kept together that way.

Good system -- like the brights on neutrals approach!

Nothing wrong with finding and taking your own path! This is a great encouragement to your junior designer:) Great tips to us the freezer paper for keeping the pieces arranged together.

Freezer paper - good idea! Dd it work with the kaleidoscope? I love these wonky stars, you're going to have a super scrappy quilt.
