iScrap Quilt # 36 – Now where did those blocks come from???

Where did I ghet these blocks????

Scrap Quilt #36  – In my endeavors to get some old blocks made up into quilt tops, I came across 12 red, white, and blue star blocks in my stash of old blocks. For the life of me I can not figure out where I got them or how long I have had them. But, anyway there is not much of a story to tell since I have forgotten everything about them. There is some poly-cotton in the blocks, so I pulled out fabrics that would go with the colors. It was once put together in a top and then taken art. Since I teach scraps, I decided to do the corner stones in red and the stripping in blues. Because there was all kinds of different colors I went real scrappy for all the added pieces. I ended up using the red plaid as a border because I had it, and them made the corner blocks all the same to tie the top together. I think it works. Can be quilted and loved by someone else when I die. LOL! It turned out okay, but nothing to write home about. Still wondering where I got those blocks. Hmmmmmmmmmm?????     UPDATE: My good friend, Marty Stanchi, wrote and told me that she thinks she bought them on ebay and gave them to me a loooooong time ago. She said she thought they are Martha Washington stars. Thanks, Marty!!!!!!!!!!! I hope I did it justice!
