Scrappy Saturday

Part of the fun of participating in the rainbow scrap challenge is sorting through the bits and pieces of fabric I've been saving and figuring out a way to put the bits into quilt blocks.
This week I cut up the pieces for 12 more Alamo Star blocks.





Today I'll be "wasting" some time with family functions. LOL! And you know me, I'll try to squeeze in some quilting time too if possible!
