January Blues

This is the beginning of my second year of participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge which is hosted by Angela. Each month has its assigned color, and every Saturday we all link up blog posts showing our progress. Saturday is one of the blog-reading highlights of my whole week when I get to see what everyone has been making. I always come away with way more ideas than I have time to make!

This year I've had a little trouble settling on my rainbow project for the year. The current top choice is to make more 6" LeMoyne stars like the ones below. These were started many years ago and have been sitting in a box ever since. It's about time they were allowed to come out & play!



So far I have made 4 stars in blues, our January color. The three bright ones look great with the previous set, but that one at the lower right is not going to make the cut.




My carry-over project from last year's RSC is my scrappy hexies. I have been basting blue hexies and hope to start sewing them together next week.




Check out the Rainbow Scrap Challenge posts every Saturday to see how others are using up their scraps. So many beautiful projects!

  6. I love LeMoyne Stars too. I actually thought of making some myself. I'd leave that lower right one in...you never know...when you get enough of them it will look great. And love the hexies too. Do you cut your own papers? I'd probably make some of those but am too lazy to cut all those papers!

  12. What a fun new scrappy project for 2014. I love the look of those stars, but not so much making them.
