Most of my blue Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing this week involved the assembly of a lot of Sawtooth Stars and Uneven 9-Patch blocks.
This project has been floating around for a couple of years, and I decided 2017 was the year to finish it. This is only about a quarter of the blocks. The rest were assembled into similar-size sections, which will get sewn together before the weekend is over.
Another element of the Sawtooth Star quilt will be a border of Flying Geese blocks. I've got about 50 FG blocks made (upper left), but I need about 40 more. Hence the pile of 3 1/2 inch strips on the cutting mat.
While I had the blue fabric chunks and yardage out, I also cut a big batch of 2 1/2 inch strips to add to the collection in my bin (top right). I'm succumbing to temptation and joining Diane Knott's 2017 Summer Sew Along. I've been thinking about projects that would use up more blue scraps, and this seemed like a great idea. I'll be using blue and white and cream as my color combination.
Dear Hubby and I were out and about for a bit this morning and dropped into a couple of our favorite treasure-hunting places. A fun time was had by all!
