The Bluest Saturday

(I know it is now Pink month but this was to be posted two weeks ago.)

Lots of projects to choose from but I'm stuck on this one.

Irish Star blocks: love making these little stars. 

I need to make a few alternate blocks too otherwise there will be too many to do at the end and I might get bored. 

Someone commented that I have a lot of projects with solid-coloured fabric. It made me look at my projects differently and an idea popped up. 
The only project that I have with only solid-coloured fabrics is the Buckeye Beauty variant. 

The idea is to add a border of tone-on-tone blocks. It might just bring it to a decent size. Thanks, Linda for the inspiration. 

I don't seem to have a lot of tone-on-tone blues but managed to make four. 

The bright blue one might not get into the quilt but I'll see how it plays once I have more blocks done. 

Most of my sewing time was spent cutting squares for Twinkling Scrap Star (Galaxy Star). Should I sew them into HSTs now or do it at the retreat? 

9-Patch, anyone? 

On to Pink. 
Have a great scrappy week.

Great job finishing up BLUE, Chantal!! You will be pleased to know that I also made a block for the RSC this week. I wonder what it could be? :P

You have a great collection of blocks! That scrappy star quilt is always a stunner.

Frédérique said...

Elles sont belles tes étoiles ! J'adore Buckeye Beauty aussi.
Tu n'es pas trop dans la tempête actuellement, avec ces températures effrayantes ?

Lots of great blocks with the blues. I do love those stars with the extra interest of a block in the corners.

I love your Irish Star blocks and the 25 patches that alternate between them. That will be a beautiful quilt!

Pretty Irish Star blocks, works well with the 25 patches. Beautiful Buckeye Beauty, and blocks too.
