This week I finished a batch of 4" Sawtooth Stars. These will get added to last year's blocks, which will eventually become a very scrappy rainbow star quilt.
The sailboat blocks were a souvenir from a quilt show in 1993. They were all stitched by different hands and were not all the same size I decided to use the wonky setting technique Bonnie Hunter used on her Happy Scrappy Houses to get the blocks to a uniform size. The sashing and cornerstone fabrics are all from the scrap stash. I think I'd like to add another outer border, but it depends on what I can find in my stash. I'm really happy to have finally put these blocks to use!
Since my stash of blue scraps is endless, I'm sure I'll be returning to scrappy blue piecing throughout the year. For now though, I'm looking forward to focusing on another color and seeing what inspiration strikes.
