Rainbow Scrap Challenge for January was Light Blue

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for January is light blue and I have been snatching small amounts of RSC sewing time here and there.  I had a small amount of pre cut scrap, but fortunately after visiting my uncle and aunt, I acquired a bag of my aunts scrap and there was oodles of light blue!  I have cut the pieces up and been mainly chain piecing half square triangles, as I was completely out.
This is a relatively new block for me, one I have resorted to as I have more half square triangles then I do 2.5" squares.
I cobbled together enough squares for these stars.  And then I ran out of light blue half square triangles!  I have to  keep reminding myself that the idea is to use it up!
 So then I went  to making four patches. I already have a good collection of these, but not decided what to make with them yet.  Looking at this picture I am tempted to make 16 patch blocks.
 And last but not least I have a flimsy finish. 
I found all the four patches already made during a clean up of my stash. I like colour coordinating my eye spy fabrics, it makes the overall quilt less "busy", especially with the white polka dot sashing breaking it all up.  I have made a quilt in the same design previously (see here), but I think this one is going to remain borderless as it is already a good size.  I have made a backing for it, and its going into the pile to be quilted - when winter comes, far too hot here to contemplate quilting!
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. y far the biggest was 10.3% between the second quarters of 2007 and 2008. I can’t for the life of me think what might have happened in the meantime to affect the figures to such an extent...iron gates for sale

  2. Pretty little light blue blocks.
    Oh, check out the gingham star points in the lower star. Don't know if that will bother you or not.
    Your color coordinated I Spy blocks are very easy on the eyes. I agree that it calms the whole thing down. Some such quilts do get kind of crazy.

  3. Love your stars!
    The flimsy is going to be a huggable quilt, I can tell!
