The Rainbow Scrappers are working with purple scraps this month. I had a few yellow stars to finish sewing from last month, and this week have made a few more purple Alamo Stars to add to the collection.
Some enquiring young minds (Janet and Angie) wanted to know how many Alamo Star blocks I have made over the years. So I actually got out the bin and counted.
This is what the block collection looks like in their storage bin.
There is a grand total of 218 stars as of last week plus the 9 blocks made this week. If I arranged these stars 14 blocks across by 16 blocks down, my quilt would measure 31.5" x 36"... just a wallhanging size.
Maybe that's why I didn't count them before because it's discouraging and a long way from a bed size quilt amount!
What to do? Keep plugging away sewing little stars for the next couple of years? Or make a wallhanging instead of a bed quilt?
