RSC 15: Sugar and Stars

I've been trying to get my usual RSC blocks finished early this month, as I will be traveling during the second half of the month.  Angela's instructions for this month of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge are to use dark green scraps, but I pretty well depleted my dark greens making a Trip Around the World quilt last year.
I guess these are dark and light versions of my Sugar Bowl block.  I'm only planning to have two blocks of each RSC color in the final Sugar Bowl quilt, so this is a good compromise.

I also put together 2 Maverick/Liberated Stars from scraps in the crumb jars.  

They joined the two Mavericks from last year's RSC.  There are only 3 colors remaining in last year's stack of stars that need partners:  aqua, red and orange.  Once those colors come up for this year's RSC I'll be ready to assemble these blocks.

Today is Rainbow Scrap link-up day, so go feast your eyes on lots of green scrappiness at Angela's SoScrappy blog!

  6. Both these blocks look so good. Your sugar bowl is tempting me to think about bringing it into a quilt for my grand-daughter.
