First up are the Twinkler Stars for the RSC 2016 Sampler. Angela's design called for eight stars, but somehow I ended up with nine of them. I love the look of this block!

RSC 2016 Sampler
One of my projects for the 2015 Rainbow Scrap Challenge was bowtie blocks. I made 40 - 50 bowties each month, and I have been joining them together into tops. The first top was completed this week, and I have enough blocks left for another one this size (about 56" x 72".) This quilt used 252 of the bowtie blocks, and each block finishes at 4".
Getting this top together was also my January goal for OMG (One Monthly Goal) at Red Letter Quilts. It feels very good to have met my goal for the first month!
I have also been making more blue 9-patch blocks for the Ring Cycles quilt, but there isn't any space on my design wall to put them up. Here are 39 more 9P blocks, plus two of the 8P that go around the outside edges of the quilt. I believe I have made almost half of the total number of blocks needed for this quilt. On the left side are more strips to be cut for additional blocks.
Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.
