My progress on Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects was limited this week. I've been fighting a terrible cold, and it greatly limited my energy for quilting. Even when I felt the urge to quilt, it needed to be something simple because my brain was so foggy that decision making was nearly impossible. All I was capable of doing was running pieces of fabric through the machine.
I'm working through my drawer of 3" strips, and I still have plenty of teal and turquoise strips to use. I decided to make a variation of Friendship Stars that I believe is called Ribbon Stars. I believe I borrowed this idea/design from Cathy at Cathy's Crazy by Design. She is showing a beautiful set of these blocks this week. I plan to continue making more of these this month and in future months.
The square-in-a-square nine-patches down the sides of the photo are leftovers from a Storm at Sea quilt I started in 2001 and finished in 2012. Some of those blocks were already made, and I finished making the rest this week. I also made the little Broken Dishes blocks that run across the top from more of those leftovers.
Here is a photo of my finished Storm at Sea quilt, followed by a closer shot showing some of the fabrics. This quilt is the main reason I have such a sizable collection of teal and turquoise scraps.
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at both places.
