Here is a very rare thing for me, two blog posts in the same day. Every month I post a list of quilting goals for the next month, plus review how I did on last month's goals. I meant to get the October/November post written in advance and posted last night, but that just didn't happen. If you are interested, you can read that HERE.
It is a wild and windy day here in Georgia, definitely feeling like fall. As we go speeding toward the end of the year, it is time to work on wrapping up some ongoing projects. I have been making LeMoyne Stars all year for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This month's color is light blue, but I think I will switch over to light neutrals instead to round out my color palette.
I showed a photo of my 12" LeMoyne stars last week (see them HERE.) I have decided to go ahead with the plan to make 12 blocks. I made a scrappy brown star last weekend, and will work on a tan/beige one next. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions on a twelfth color to use. I think I will make it in white/cream/very pale prints with the black background.
My other rainbow project has been the Hexie Stars and Snowflakes, which I started in August of 2013. I spent October adding background to my black and brown blocks, plus I put together a leftover purple snowflake. I will continue to add background to the stars each month, still following the assigned rainbow color when possible.
Check out this week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge posts--lots of amazingly beautiful rainbow projects to inspire you!

Beautiful blocks . . .ReplyDelete
Oh so pretty! I'm stealing your idea of doing the surrounds of the hexagons in the color next year. I think your neutral star might steal the show!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see all the colours of your Hexie Stars and Snowflakes~ReplyDelete
The browns are actually quite pretty.ReplyDelete
I have appreciated the challenge as it pushes me to get hexagons done. I do need to figure out just what I'm going to do with them though.
