Left Over Triangle Scraps

I have been working on the 'Scrappy Stars Sew-Along' with Terry.  Here is another block.  I want to make about 4 per month instead of 2.  That way I will have a larger quilt in the end.




After making the flying geese units for Terry's block, I found that I have a lot of triangles left over.  And well, you know me, I can never see anything go to waste.  So I made this block this morning using the triangle units.  I saw it somewhere on the web.  Can't remember where.  Sorry.  Here is a photo of it.


This block has another row between the blocks to give the impression of a 9-patch in between the stars.  I rather like it, but it took me 2 hours to put the block together.  Hopefully they will go faster now that I know what I am doing.  This one is only 8 inches finished.

I love both your blocks! The second one is called scrap jar stars I think, but I don't remember where it's from either! LOL
