Blue Progress Update

It is time again to check in at Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge with our progress using our blue scraps.  I have been working on my little squares making 16 patch blocks.  I started out with this basket full of 1.5" squares.
I have been sewing and sewing.  I have made 40 - 16 patch blocks.  That is 640 little squares.  I wonder how many more 16 patch blocks are still in the basket.  I will conquer this.
After seeing some star blocks with patch blocks I decided I would make six star blocks each month.
My BLUE ones are completed.

I know I was determined not to start any new scrap projects.  Karen at Laugh Yourself Into Stitches posted about making snowman and they are so adorable.  Yesterday I couldn't resist any longer.  There are lots of little pieces but the block was fun to make.
I was making these tiny bags for gifts and decided to make one a month in the rainbow color.  This blue will be a gift for a friend.  I keep my wonder clips in mine.

I will be spending the rest of the blue month making string blocks.

  2. Any kind of stars is a winner in my book and when you use up scraps that's even better.

    Oh, I like your gift bag idea. Cute.
