Scrappy Saturday - Last Yellow Week

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?


This many!
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.

  1. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. 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. : )

  15. Perhaps you won't stop making the little Alamo blocks and instead of a single quilt, they will become a series. They are adorable.

  21. 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.

  28. 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!!!
