Happy Thursday everyone!

Summer seems to have relocated around these parts, so in an attempt to bring you lots of summer colour and happiness, check out my Summer Starburst Quilt!

This started out as a ‘scrap buster’ project, after I got enquiries on how to use larger pieces of scraps (less than a fat quarter metre).

The design is based on the arrow-head block (half square triangles and squares), and you could easily change the colourways to suit whatever you have in your stash.

I really love the ‘colour splat’ effect from the rounds of colour – it makes me smile and think of a warm, hot summer (a girl can dream)!
This pattern is available in the July issue of Popular Patchwork, and it made front cover!! Woohoo!

Isn’t the styling gorgeous!  Loving the cute bike!
So what I want to know is, do you like scrappy projects? How do you use your scraps?  And what’s the smallest size you keep?
Looking forward to hearing from you,
