RSC Saturday in blue

I finally got to have some quality time with the sewing machine this week and played with some of my blue and purple fabrics!
Six Twinkle stars got made using Angela's pattern. This will be for the row along... but would make a super cute quilt on their own!

I made a couple of 8 inch blocks to add to the ones I found in the drawer earlier this month. I think that dark blue one might be too dark to go with the others.... Unless I make some in all colors like Sheila of Sew Cook and Travel does and use 48 colorful blocks to make a nice size throw..... ?


I am so glad we have one more week to play with blue...as I have not had too much time this month to play with my scraps. Too many hand work projects I am trying to get to a complete status this month for time with the sewing machine (midget appliqué into a top, UFO - quilt as you go, trip blocks into a top with a rework on yellow).

Head on over Saturday morning to the RSC Challenge to see what others have been doing with their scraps this week. This is the first year I have not picked 3-5 blocks to make and I am feeling a bit lost. I may have to rethink that and make a block or two...... Maybe houses? Those have been on my to do list for a while....

  1. I continue to marvel at just how many projects you have on the go at once. You always choose interesting patterns and colours. Your fabric stash must reach the ceiling! It's a real treat to see all these wonderful projects come together.

  2. I love your Twinkle Blocks! I have mine on my design wall and every time I walk past I think they are so beautiful and that they need a quilt of there own. It may come in the future....

  4. Oh my! I love those twinkle stars! I thought I'd join in this month but my folks had a little - make that huge - medical emergency so I'm not geographically close to the stash or the tools when I had planned to be sewing. Maybe next month I can catch up.

  10. Having an extra blue week will be good for lots of us I think. Your star blocks turned out beautifully.
