Last of the Light Blues

For the time being anyway. ;- ) I've forsaken the big Ohio Stars for smaller stars and Wrench blocks.


Those are 9" stars and wrenches that will finish at 7.5". Oh, there's one 6" shoo-fly block and one 10" wrench in the collection too. 

I've been sewing up other scraps this week as well:



My stand-by 6" blocks and a few more stars and wrenches Oh look, there are a couple of light blue blocks in there. I'd forgotten about them! I tried out a couple of Bouncing Betty blocks (also known as Crosses & Losses). Not sure whether they will develop into the project I had in mind when I made the blocks. When I couldn't focus on a specific project I sewed up leftover triangles into Broken Dishes units. 

I'm looking forward to the new color to be announced in a few days. In the meantime I'm linking up with the other RSC bloggers today over at SoScrappy. There's a lot of inspiration to be had in those other blogs!

Great use of plaids and wavy fabrics, especially the yellowish ones. Well done.

see, this is why I love doing the color challenge. Everyone does something different, something I wouldn't have thought of. LeeAnna

Some days are just full of lots of little bits. They add up over time though. Looking forward to red for July.

With your lovely Ohio stars, you've just reminded me that I also wanted to make an Ohio star quilt next. *sigh* I can start three quilts, right?
I love all your blocks (especially that wavy monkey wrench. And the stars. And the broken dishes.) Your design wall is inspiring!

You just keep plugging along, accomplishing lots! Your design wall is inspiring. You have used up a lot of light blue this month - good for you!

Your blocks are inspiring. I like your philosophy of making Broken Dishes blocks when you hit your imagination limits.

Your blocks are inspiring me, too. I hear July will be a red month :D
