Scrappy Saturday - Blues

A bit more of the blue stash has been tamed this week. Strips were cut and block pieces were organized for more Alamo Stars. Each star block needs 17 pieces cut from a 1.25" strip using 3 different rulers, so it takes a while to do the prep work.




Once I have the pieces cut for a block I use the Clover clips to keep them together.
Here is a handful of blocks all ready to go. They will be sewn using the leader/ender system in between sewing other things this week.
To see more blue scrap projects, hop over to SoScrappy.
Bonnie is hosting QuiltCam this afternoon so that's what I'll be doing. You can link up from the Quiltville website starting at 2 pm. Come be part of the "Soul Quilters" as Bonnie says:

We are “Soul Quilters”  The Sisters & Brothers of the cloth –We understand each other’s need to sew as much variety as we can, to sew all the pieces that we can, to make something that says something about who we are and what we love.

Lots of pretty blues. My twinkle star blocks are simliar, lots of pieces to be cut per block. But that all make up so pretty so it's totally worth it.

Love those pretty blue prints. I enjoy watching those stars come together in each month's colors. Looking forward to seeing them in all together in a quilt.

It is amazing what those little bits and pieces can turn into with a little love and time. Isn't that why we do this -- to spend time doing what we love? Enjoy every minute!

You look quite organized!

Cathy said...

I'm worn out just looking at all that prep work! I do love your Alamo Stars but I think I would be too lazy to do all that itty bitty cutting.

Oh, I love the idea of clipping the pieces of the blocks together.
