Monday Morning Stars

I finished 3 full stars and another half star this past weekend on the way to my parent's house for some family photos.  My star count is up to 28 with many, many more to go.
 
                                      
 
Some people have asked about the fabrics or commented on the scrappiness of the quilt.  I am using leftover pieces from every quilt that I have made.  Once my stars are finished (no timeline), I will have a history of the quilts that I have given away.  This grouping of stars, from the top around clockwise includes: fabric from my niece's baby quilt, fabric used to make a quilt for a young woman who I advise that was just diagnosed with cancer, and fabric from the quilt I made for my MIL's 60th birthday.  The only fabric that I have actually bought for this quilt is the white.
 
I am linking up with Monday Morning Star Counts.
