Just Cut the Points Off

DSCN3189Someone gave me old star blocks. They all had “Y” seams that I can’t do on a machine and I won’t do by hand. So, I studied them all long enough to say to myself, “Just cut the points off.”  That made them square. I found some small printed fabric for the sashings and cornerstones and threw it together. Not my best work, but I was using old fabrics and hand-pieced work.  At least it is not still in the scrap bag.
