I used some medium blue scraps to make up some 4" Sawtooth Star blocks. This is a carry-over RSC project from last year. I didn't have a particular plan in mind when I started making these, but they're kind of addictive to make and I just enjoyed playing with them last year. I'm starting to have an inkling of what I'd like to do with them, but for now I'm just going to keep churning them out.
Scraps prepped for more Sawtooth Stars. For the Flying Geese portion of the Sawtooth Stars, I like to use a no-waste, speed-piecing method I first saw on Marcia Hohn's Quilter's Cache website (see Method B).
A batch of scrappy blue stars.
The big story at my house is that I finally finished piecing this t-shirt quilt! I added lots and lots of blue strips - Kaffe Fassett's Paperweight fabric - for the sashing and borders. It currently measures about 84" x 90", so it's awkward to handle. I did a final pressing and thread clean-up, so I can take it to the long-arm quilter as soon as I have the backing prepped. Yay!!
So after spending most of today wrestling the t-shirt quilt, I'm looking forward to putting my feet up and enjoying a cup of tea and lots of other scrappy projects from the RSC.
