STARS AND STRIPS
I love the Sawtooth Star block because of the variations, especially using a central focus fabric. The first one I made last year was a random color choice, not a Rainbow Scrap Challenge selection.
When I was deciding what blocks to use for RSC18, I chose this block. For my January light blue blocks I made the first one by adding pink to complement the Kaffe Fassett fabric, one of my favorites. Matching the blue would have been impossible, at last with my limited stash.
My second block used this lovely fussy-cut medallion. I apparently was not quite fussy enough, but was determined to use it.
This week it occurred to me that I have never made any strip pieced blocks. Then I saw Kat’s call for these blocks for Covered In Love, http://katandcatquilts.blogspot.com/.
I do have miles of strips taking up space and found some ugly fabric to use for the foundation, another way to shrink my stash. (This is my year of no fabric purchases.)
Here are the three strip blocks I made in no time at all, and I cut up several other 10-1/2 inch backing pieces.
I don’t know why it never occurred to me to make these blocks years ago, but better late than never. My stash is already thanking me.
My Scrap Attack choice for this month is my Geese Migration quilt and I started Quilting it today. So I will have that finish to show you next week.
