Last year about this time I was inspired by soscrappy's annual rainbow scrap challenge. It took on a life of its' own however, and became my Grandma's Box of Crayons quilt.
I have been looking at what QuiltDivaJulie has planned for her scraps this year and what she's done so far and I have become inspired again. I'm not going to go whole hog the way Julie is but I thought this would be a good way to try to use up some of the cuts of fabric I have that have become too small to put back in the stash. In the end I decided to make Ohio Stars rather than the Sawtooth Star Sampler blocks Soscrappy (I've forgotten her given name!) has designed for us.
The color for January was to be a medium blue. I had a little trouble coming up with scraps that fit that description but I have three blocks that I think qualify. The fourth is a little dark perhaps. My intention is to make three blocks per month for a twin size quilt at the end of the year.That dark block was made early on which is why I've ended up with four blocks this month.
The color for February is pink. I may have a hard time stopping at three blocks again, but just because I have so much pink in my stash!
