Prepping Aqua Sawtooth Stars

Not many aqua scraps were transformed into quilt blocks this week.  The Maverick Star quilt and Quilty 365 blocks have been taking up my daily sewing time.  All fabric therapy is a good thing, right?

I did sort through the box of 2 1/2" strips to cut some pieces for Sawtooth Star blocks.  I didn't have any aqua stars from last year, so I tried to come up with a good number of blocks for this round.  It takes a lot of 4" stars to make a quilt!   These parts will get stitched up as leader-enders through the rest of the month.

The Rainbow Scrappers will have more aqua inspiration over at Angela's Soscrappy blog.  Hop over there if you're wondering what to do with your scraps!

  3. These are going to be beautiful. Such discipline to assemble them as leaders and enders - I would want to dive right in and make the stars!

  5. My aqua stash is rather impressive because I love to buy it, but I don't seem to use it. Hmm. I like the ones you've chosen for your stars, maybe I need to go play with some aqua too. I'm easily distracted, can you tell? LOL

  6. I think prep work should be counted as sewing time; sometimes it takes more time than any other step. So, you were productive this week!
