Scraps and Hexies and Stars, Oh My! 9/27/13

One of the greatest things about blogging is discovering the unlimited creativity of other quilters. I am constantly amazed by all the incredible ideas floating around, and it is overwhelming how generous quilters are in sharing their designs and their tips and tutorials.

I especially love taking part in the link-ups on other blogs. Today's post is going to be linked to two blogs that I just discovered in the last few weeks, Hexie Friday at A Quilting Reader's Garden and the Paper Piecing Party at Quiet Play. On Saturday, I will also link up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and also to Scrap Basket Sunday at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure.

Both of my projects this week were started as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. For September our chosen color has been baby blue. I paper pieced nine light blue Dancing Stars blocks to add to those I have been making all year. Here they are on their own, plus combined with my darker blue blocks. If you are interested in this pattern, it is available as a free download at Amy's Creative Side.

Since August I have been working on some English Paper Pieced hexagons, also in the colors of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The hexies have been the perfect portable project for me, and they generally go most everywhere with me. There will definitely be more hexies to come in future months.

Happy quilting!
