Sometimes you cut, and sometimes you sew

After what's turning out to be a very productive month in my sewing room, I was quite content to spend today's naptime just cutting fabric.

This morning I sorted through a pile of scraps from Shannon and made little sub-piles to be cut down and put into 3 projects I've got in the works-- Travel Quilt #3, a leaders & enders with 2.5" squares, and then I set aside some bright centers and tiny triangles for my new obsession-- maverick stars.
I have been so inspired by the creative energy on display over at 15minutesplay that the other night I handed Costas a small clock and asked him to tell me when 15 minutes had passed.  It turned out that these stars take 20 minutes start to finish (including finding, pressing & cutting fabric), but once I started I just couldn't stop. 
I don't have any plans for these right now, but it's so fun to use the teensy tiny scraps in my triangle box for the star points.  I like having this project waiting on a corner of my cutting table so I can whip one up when i know I only have 20 minutes.

Cute! I discovered these stars a few months ago and now have a pile of 20 or so. It's exactly like you said - it's nice to have something you can complete in a short amount of time and use up all those tiny bits of fabric I can't throw out. :)
