Strip Stars

Description of Class

I LOVE scrappy quilts and I hate to throw away any size of strip. I also LOVE half square triangles, so this was a fun quilt to design and make.  It goes together fairly quickly and makes a nice queen-sized quilt. You can go through your stash, your scrap bag, or maybe this will require a trip to the fabric store. Any way you choose to do it, it should turn out great!
