Scrappy in Red 8/24/13

I finished the last of my red Dancing Stars blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week. I ended up with 12 stars in red. I believe that brings me to just over 100 blocks finished at this point, and I need 98 of them for the throw size quilt. I haven't decided if I will keep making more blocks in the colors that are chosen for the remaining months of the year. I will probably try a few and see how well they fit in with the rest of the collection.

Lately my best opportunity for quilting time has been during my commute to and from work on the train each day. I started basting red scraps to hexagons, and this week I have been stitching them together. This is my first "snowflake" laid out and waiting for me to finish joining the hexies. I also have about 30 or 40 more red hexies basted and waiting their turn. I expect this project to carry over into next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I am linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013, where you can see all sorts of wonderful ways that other quilters have been using their red scraps this month. I am also linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday at Kathy's Quilts. Check out the other posts featuring hand-stitched projects.

  1. I like your hexie star! I have been looking at different hexie projects this week, trying to decide if I want to start up that addiction. Your setting is my favorite so far!

  2. Great star blocks. I love your hexies. What a great layout.

  3. Oh my goodness NOT tempt me with another wonderful scrap idea!!! LOL
    Thanks for linking up to Slow Stitching Sunday and sharing your projects!

  4. I can't wait to see your finished Dancing Stars project, each new set of blocks look so sparkly. Your hexies are cute.

  5. Love those dancing stars.... and the snowflake hexies are gorgeous! I am thinking that would be next year's hand work project. I'm going to have to search and figure out how to do hexies in a few months.
