Like Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework, I sometimes find working with leftovers more interesting -- certainly more challenging -- than working with the pattern the leftovers came from.
Last week at retreat I finished this top which started with the leftover 9-patches from Wink & a Smile.
The block is a variation of Sister's Choice except the outside round is 1/2" bigger than the squares in the 9-patch.

This allows the star points to float and there is no matching of the points where the blocks come together. So no sashing is required, either.
The deets, as they say: Variation of pattern from 9-Patch Reunion. 9-patch made from 2-1/2" squares, outside background cut at 3", sew-n-flip corners are 2-1/2" squares. Block finishes at 11". I made my quilt 5 x 7 or 55" x 77".
And, in case you are wondering, W&aS remains unfinished ....
