Radiant Star

My stack of cut half square triangles from last week are on their way to becoming a quilt.  I decided to arrange them using my Sunshine on a Cloudy Day pattern. (Still 20% off at Quilt Woman with promo code GIVETHANKS)   The top rows are sewn together.  I'm still working on the bottom half. This will get me to 60" square, my usual size of quilt, or there abouts anyway. But I've got to make it bigger to fit on Josh's bed.  
I'm thinking of adding a border of five inch darker squares.  A single fabric might be nice but I'm working with scraps and don't have enough of any one so we will continue with the scrappy theme.  Then I'm thinking some kind of scrappy border on the top and bottom.  Maybe flying geese.

Linking up with Cynthia and Beth.
