I've only had one sewing day this week, and actually it was just for a few hours one afternoon, but I feel like the time was well spent.
This month's color for RSC is indigo, though black or gray can be substituted. I have a lack of indigo, but an astute quilting friend pointed out that a good strategy is to use a multi-color print on a black background. Hey, it's worth a shot.
I had two prints that fit that description, so I made a couple of blocks. (And another green one, because who ever has enough green?)
I figured I could use them in the corners, since I'm toying with putting all the dark background blocks around the outside. (Well, for the next 5 minutes anyway. I'll probably have a completely different plan tomorrow.)
A better picture would be helpful, but we're stuck with this one.
I figured there was no down side to making the blocks - if I don't use them in this quilt, I'm sure to be able to fit them in somewhere else. I highly doubt this is the last Ohio Star I'll ever make.
So, three Ohio stars, three little monkeys (because there are always more monkeys), and...
See those blocks at the bottom?.
I have no idea why I made those.
But somehow, I now have six of them. Six four-inch sawtooth star blocks.
Yeah, I don't know either.
I bet I'm going to link to Angela's So Scrappy this Saturday. There'll be rainbows galore!
