Scraps are my life

Scraps to the right of me!  Scraps to the left of me!
More blocks for the 365 Challenge.


I'm still staying caught up with this, but a single 3" block a day isn't a huge energy expenditure.  (Though typically I do three blocks every three days rather than one block a day.


Still, caught up is caught up, right?)

And these little units for Allietare are getting close to an end.


At that point my leader/enders will get a little bigger...



I've been making a grand push to finish the top for the Twinkle Stars quilt.  I think I've got all the pieces cut out.  (This time for real!)
Here's the last of the bits for the big star blocks, some of which are partially assembled.


And the bits for the small stars in the sashing.


I think I'm close to the number of these little stars I'll need, but I'm not going to bet on it.  I just keep stacking them up.


In amongst all the cutting, I got one more block completed today.  So close!  I'm almost at the point where I can start sewing blocks together.


And look who's elbowing in on the left side of that last photo.
It's been a while since a monkey turned up.  I thought I had all those windows nailed firmly shut.



I'll be linking with Oh Scrap at Quilting is More Fun than Housework on Sunday.  Because scraps are my life!  Come join the fun!

Hmm I'm very impressed too. I love all your blocks and I have done 6 of the 7 blocks for this past week of 365 Challenge and hope of catch up today. Love your twinkle stars.

These blocks are so cute! You are making me regret not joining this 365. But there are so many great quiltalongs going on!

I knew those monkeys would be showing up again soon. Love all the projects you have going on. I am intrigued by your star border. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

Love seeing your progress on all these scrappy projects, always lots happening over at your place! I too, wondered if we'd seen the end of those monkeys, but no...
