Alamo Stars has been my main leader-ender project since 2012. For more than 4 years I have made blocks here and there and posted them occasionally on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up. You can see the whole block collection on the photo header of my blog this month. I have decided I am ready to be done with sewing more of these Alamo Star blocks. I have another little block I want to start making for my next RSC project, but first Alamo Stars needs to be finished. Harsh, I know!
It has been difficult to figure out how to start putting the blocks together. Should I try a random layout? Attempt an organized light to dark layout? Indecision stalled any progress.
Finally I decided to make 4 patch blocks using the colour of the month at RSC, which this month is purple. I'm sewing 4 patch blocks using two light and two dark backgrounds. The 4 patches measure 5" and will be 4.5" in the finished quilt. They are tiny and adorable... and they really do sparkle on the design wall.
Like most things in life, I have no idea how this is all going to work out, but at least it's a start toward someday having a finished quilt from these blocks. I'm hoping I will be able to arrange the colours like Angela did in her OMG layout.
