Charity Quilt #8 - Seeing Wonky Stars

Seems I've developed a liking for creating scrappy quilts lately.   So my latest quilt for charity was destined to be scrappy too.  I added some wonky stars to the quilt. This was my first attempt at the stars and I think it works.
The randomness of scrappy quilts really appeals to me and it was sometimes hard to resist the temptation to coordinate colors.

 This was also my first attempt at using my Bernina BSR for quilting this larger size of quilt.  I managed to do a tear drop with echo effect design- something I learned from Leah Day's free motion quilting course.  The quilt was a bit unmanageable at times, but a bit of scrunching and maneuvering and it worked.
  Best part -  scrappy quilts use up a lot of the fabric stash which means I get to shop for more fabric  :)
