But I like it. (There's that sneaky foot of mine again...)
My intention had been to make even numbers of the two kinds of blocks - stars with dark points and stars with light point - but obviously I failed. Now I have to decide if I care enough to round them out by making two more light-point-stars blocks.
While I'm thinking about it, here's a look at all the stars I've got done so far.
These are 6" blocks, so I'm going to need quite a lot of them to make a quilt bigger than a dishtowel. I think I'll just carry on and not worry about it, since this is probably a multi-year RSC project.
One of the things I'm doing this year, since I've got such a ridiculous number of Rainbows going on, is to make the most of my fabric cutting time.
For instance, for the block on the left (known variously as Jacks and Sixes, Anvil, Hovering Hawk, The Daily Planet... No, wait, that's something else. Nevermind.) I need to cut 6 half-square triangles, which is actually kind of awkward. I can either cut the triangles one at a time from a single layer of fabric strip (nope), or I can double the strip, cut my three pairs of triangles, and end up with a point on the end of the strip. Seriously, I really might as well cut four pairs of triangles and have a set left over.
And looky there - Buckeye Beauty needs two HSTs. I think we have a winner.
I love pretending I'm organized.
And here's this week's piglet, made with that luscious plaid? argyle? print.
His ears, feet, nose, and tail are much darker and purpler than this photo shows, but my camera doesn't like purple as much as I do and frequently refuses to show it.
The non-showing-up-well print I used is a scrap from my grandmother, leftover from a purple quilt she made for one of my cousins many
Linking with ScrapHappy Saturday at So Scrappy. I love seeing all that scrappy goodness!
