January has been a bit more interesting a month than I could have wanted, but here we all are. I finally managed to squeeze in a sewing day, hoping to get a bit of light blue rainbow sewing done, since this is the last Saturday of the month.
So, something old, something new, nothing borrowed, but all is blue!
First up, the old blocks, starting with Centennial Star. It had been so long since I'd made one of these that I had to pull the instruction sheet out and have a look. (Luckily, I had tucked it into the Centennial bin with the finished star blocks.)
Each time I make one of these, I'm reminded how much I love them, but I seem to forget in the interim between blocks. This one makes number twenty-two, so I still need lots for a quilt. I think I first started making them last year, so they're only a once-rolled-over RSC project.
My Jacks blocks, on the other hand, are twice-rolled-over. I started them in 2016, continued last year, and will keep right on chugging this year.
I counted these blocks, too, and found that I only have twenty. Since they, like the Centennial stars, are only 6" blocks, I can make lots and lots more.
And, because I hadn't started a new project yet this week, I made one block for the RSC Squared Away SAL. (The background isn't quite as blue as the photo makes it look, btw. My camera insisted that the bluer the better, and I couldn't convince it otherwise...)
I'm not committing to Squared Away as a full-tilt project, but I enjoyed making this little blue beauty, so I'm in until I'm not. This is the middle size of the three options offered. I almost went for the 5" size (and might yet anyway), but I have tons of 2" strips and squares on hand, so this size seemed an easy way to go.
So, since I finally have some rainbow scrap news to report, I'm linking with Angela at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday. Come see all the rainbow fun!
