Rainbow Alamo Stars


It's scrappy Saturday over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I have been making these little Alamo Star blocks for about two years now. You can read the first post here
They measure 2.75" and will be 2.25" once sewn to other star blocks.

I try to make some of these stars in the colour of the month over at RSC using batik scraps cut to 1.25".
I use the  Tri-Recs rulers to cut up the strips into useable pieces. Cutting the little pieces takes longer than sewing them together!


This is my little storage box where I keep some strips I want to cut, some pieces that have been cut and are ready to sew, and a few recently finished stars.
In december I am going to do a grand total count, and put them on the design wall to see how many more I want to make next year.

Such tiny goodness in a box - let them grow slowly as you enjoy them.

You can do some as L/E with the mystery next week. They are tiny! I hear you on the cutting taking time.

these are tiny and can visualise how good the quilt is going to be mind you it will take lots and lots of blocks to complete

those angles aren't easy especially so small. I'm impressed by how lush they look, and so tiny. The container is exciting. I love a container and one like this so organized and perfect for your little kits! So fun. LeeAnna at not afraid of color
