My guild stars
Whenever a guild member travels somewhere and has the opportunity to get to a quilt shop, they remember their "sisters" back home. The member buys fabric that reminds them of the trip and then shares a 6" square with each member at the next guild meeting.
I've only attended 3 meetings so far, but have already collected 10 unique squares. And I've decided to make a scrappy quilt using them. Stars seemed to be a perfect way to use the square without cutting into it. And maybe I'll mix in some square-in-a-square blocks as well. A scrappy white background will tie them all together and I can just make them as I get them. These blocks are turning out to be just over 11" square, so it won't take too many to make a quilt.
