Just a quick little post to show you my new project! I know, I know, I don't need another one but I'm doing it anyway! :) Terry over at Terry's Treasures is doing a sew-along. These are my blocks for the Scrappy Stars Sew-Along. Only 2 blocks a month, so hopefully I can keep up with that. It just started for the month of August and you just make as many blocks as you want.
I first saw this on Michelle's blog and knew I had to join in. I have lots of 2.5" squares that I am tired of looking at them and some other scraps, so I figure the only way to get rid of them is to use them!
I wanted to make sure that I didn't use the same fabric twice in any block but look what I did in the first block! Oh well, once it is all put together hopefully I will never notice it.
Here is my second block. I have several 2.5" blocks and 3.5" blocks precut from scraps and leftover from other projects so this was perfect. And I also get to use up some background yardage that I was tired of looking at too.
I also have another star quilt that I want to start soon, but I need to make sure that I have enough white on my bolt before I start it.
I made one more basket, which takes me to 41 of them. I also found my cheddar bowties for some reason in my tote of 2.5" squares. So I got those out and made a few as I was piecing the star blocks.
Over the next few days my posts will probably be short. I have a visitor for a few days, so that will take up a lot of my time....see you soon....
Have a wonderful and Blessed day
