Those itsy bitsy teeny tiny stars

     I have been making wonky stars from scraps and 2" assorted white/creams for a long time as leader/enders. My granddaughter arranges the block and I press it on freezer paper until I can web sew them. I have over 100. But I could not find a way to arrange them that was not repetitive and monotonous. On Pinterest, I found a large star quilt that had a circular arrangement and I said, aha, that is it.
    I figured out the placement and have to sew more plain squares in threes for it to work. I will make a large circle block and then more so I can sew the circle blocks into a top.

Thank you for sharing this design plan. It's EXACTLY what I've been looking for!! I wasn't sure how to arrange my own Wonky Stars and the alternate block thing just wasn't working for me. YOU have solved my puzzle!!

I like that layout too and how nice that it is so simple to add more squares of the same size to create it.

Very clever! Three little squares here and there - and you have something that looks far more complicated than it really is - ;))

I really like the idea of your granddaughter arranging the blocks, and working on these a little at a time. Love the planned arrangement!
