It's the last week for the Rainbow Scrap Quilters to work on decreasing their pile of yellow scraps. I finished sewing 9 tiny leader/ender Alamo Star blocks using yellow fabrics as either the star or the background.
Aren't they so pretty?!?
I wonder if I will ever finish this project since I still love making these blocks?!?
Do you want to see how many I have made so far?
They are only 2.25" so it's a very small container, but the collection sure looks pretty!
I definitely need more dark background blocks, so I'll try to work on that.
I also finished some miniature double 9 patch blocks for my Omigosh quilt. I finished 2 green blocks from last month, and 2 yellow blocks for June. That brings my block total for this project to 45.
To see more yellow postings, hop over to SoScrappy. The best thing about the last Saturday of the month is anticipating what the colour for next month will be!
Great progress this month. What a great stack of Alamo Stars. As long as you aren't tired of them yet, it seems like a great way to keep using up scraps. Happy yellow day!
It boggles the mind ( mine, anyway ) to conceive of a block that tiny! :)
You are amazing
Your eye sight is excellent to be able to make such small Alamo Star blocks and 9 patch. They are adorable! I am sure they will make stunning quilts once they get sewn together.
I would have had trouble coming up with much of anything in yellow scraps. You evidently had a lot. Your pile of rainbow pieces looks so pretty in the side view.
Loved seeing your huge pile of blocks. I'm guessing that's from last year too, as I can see colours we haven't had yet.
I have looked and looked at Omigosh and have thought numerous times that I wanted to make it - maybe one day
I just LOVE little blocks. I'm really in love with those Alamo Stars.
I love all your little blocks. What a lot of patience you must have. the effect is going to be spectacular when you do put everything together.
Wowzer, Alamo Stars in a Rainbow of colors. Happy sewing indeed.
You must really like the tiny pieces! Your Alamo Stars are so pretty, and I can't wait to see the 9-patches become an Omigosh quilt.
I've been loving these yellow blocks, Kathy! Such a happy colour. And both projects are looking good!
Wow! What a collection of Alamo Stars! Have you decide how you will use them?
Those Alamo stars are tiny. I'm guessing you are going to need a lot of them
what a gorgeous stack! well done!
Wow, I didn't realize you had so many little Alamo stars! If you enjoy making them, maybe you will end up with of full bed size quilt out of the little beauties.
Your Omigosh blocks look great. I'm hoping that by watching you make that quilt it will satisfy my craving to do so. : )
Perhaps you won't stop making the little Alamo blocks and instead of a single quilt, they will become a series. They are adorable.
They are so small but completely charming! Maybe they'll make up into a doll quilt :)
As always, your work is amazing!! love these blocks. will you add a border to it? do you have any ufos that need to be adopted? cant wait to see this one when it is done
The Alamo Stars are soooo cute!
Love the tiny blocks! What a great way of using up the tiny scraps. Alamos are so cute!
So pretty but so tiny! Love those alamo stars. I wonder what color you get to work with next month.
Wozer! 2 and 1/4" blocks. Amazing. By hand or machine? No matter they are darling. No wonder you are having so much fun with them. They must make up pretty darn fast. Love the photo of all of them stacked up.
Love the Alamo star blocks. I can't believe how many you've done. THey will look amazing when all sewn together xx
You certainly have a lot....amazing
Wow! What a wonderful stack of blocks! A rainbow for sure!
I love your Alamo Star blocks! I did not realize that they were that small!!
So, so, so pretty! The Alamo stars are fabulous.
Loooove the stack of star blocks... SEW cool!
Love the box of Alamo blocks - I'd love to run my fingers through all that lovely color! And you've done such a lot on the OMG quilt. I keep thinking that would be a great quilt for my crumbs, but then I don't ever start. Wonder what is keeping me from starting ....? Could it be the 900,000,000,000,000,000+ pieces it would require? LOL!!!
I so admire you doing such tiny fiddly blocks and so many too, this is going to be a pretty spectacular quilt
Those Alamo Stars are going to be gorgeous when you get them all into a quilt.
