Scrappy Saturday


This is the end of the pink scraps month over at the Rainbow Challenge

I finished up an even dozen of my 2.25" Alamo Stars...so cute!


And then sewed up a pink Palm Branch block. These paper piecing patterns finish at 6" x 7" are great scrap users.  I am trying to place the fabrics from darker at the bottom to lighter at the top.
(See more blocks here)

The free pattern is called Red Herring from Quiet Play -click here to find the block.

Hop over to SoScrappy to see if other scrappers are finishing pink or starting on purple!

Hi~ found you at SoScrappy. I'm working on this paper pieced quilt, too. My progress is on the top banner of my blog. Come on over and see it.

I am enamored by your Alamo Stars, but I'm pretty sure my accuracy is not that good!

So happy you have finished up so many great pink scraps. The graduations on the palm branch block are such a nice touch.

Very, very nice, I agree with soscrappy the graduations on the palm are a nice added touch.

Love those Alamo Stars. I have the foundation pattern and every time I see yours I think I should give them a try--but so far I haven't ventured there.
Nice Palm Leaf block!

Love your palm branches. That is going to make a wonderful quilt. 2.25 inches is so tiny for those cute little stars.

Great start to your year with the lovely pink blocks. I have to have will power and not start one of those. I have so many already, maybe ideas for next year.

Beautiful blocks. I really like that Red Herring block!
