Bonus Starburst

There were lots of bonus HST blocks leftover from making Grand Illusion.  Even though I only made half the number of blocks for a smaller quilt, there were loads of bonus blocks in red/white and black/white.

One afternoon a week I have been volunteering at the Welcome Desk (receptionist) at our church.  Yes, I'm way overqualified for that (LOL), but they needed some help.  Anyway, it's pretty quiet and was a great opportunity for me to trim those little bonus blocks to uniform size.  (1 3/4 inches square)

Pam Buda at Heartspun Quilts recently introduced an adorable collection of thee small quilts called "Tokens of the Past: Gathering in Red."  I used her Starbrust Quilt as inspiration and used up a whole bunch of those bonus HST's.

I love Pam's collection of red fabrics, and am very fortunate to have a few pre-cut pieces in my stash.

Do you have any plans for bonus blocks?

  1. I have a box of bonus triangles that are sewn but not trimmed. I'm hoping someday to make something from Edyta Sitar's Friendship Stars some day. I love your little "bonus" quilt--adorable and very striking!
