I got totally lost in the batik scrap box this week. I was oohing and ahhhing over such pretty scraps. How much time passed as I cut and sorted these little gems? The squares and strips are 1.25".
Just look at these trimmings that someone gifted to me! I love that light blue fabric with the pink leaves. I'm not sure if I will cut these into Alamo star pieces, or save them for something else? They are quite large pieces!
Here's the first batch of Alamo star blocks ready to sew. Each star measures 2.75" and is made of 17 little pieces. I sew these blocks as leader/enders, so I like to have a stack of pieces beside my machine to put through the machine between other seams I am sewing. The colour for the RSC this month is orange, so all of these blocks will either be an orange star or have an orange background.
