2015 RSC January Blue Week 2


Our Rainbow Scrap Challenge Host, Angela, is hosting a RSC Column Quilt this year. January's color is blue and here are six blue stars for the first column of the quilt. I'm undecided if I want to make a lap or twin size quilt. Six blocks will be enough for a lap quilt.


I plan to make a doll quilt each month in that month's RSC color. The border, backing, binding and many of the one hundred 2" squares in this one is blue.  The border is 3" blue strips. A 36-patch blue block made with 2" squares made it into the picture.
I've been working on a charity baby quilt this week that I'll photograph and post when it's finished.
I LOVE blue so this is going to be a good month. To see what others made with wonderful blues, go here.

Your stars are lovely, and I like your doll quilt a month idea, do you have a lot of little girls in your life? I have three grandsons.

The blue border makes those tiny scraps sparkle. Great work on the sampler blocks 😄

So pretty and interesting stars, and great blues.

Those stars are wonderful. And a quilt for each color. Don't give Angela ideas!

Love your stars - great choice of colours.

Your Twinkle Star blocks turned out beautifully. Looks like you've got a good scrap busting plan in place for this year.

Very pretty star blocks. I like the blue doll quilt.

I love your stars, and I really really love your idea of a doll quilt each month!

Cathy said...

What a great idea to do a doll quilt every month! We are all smacking our heads out here wondering why we didn’t think of that. I mean, WE wouldn’t settle for just one quilt, so why should our (or our daughters’ or our granddaughters’) dolls settle for just one? I am working my way down in scrap size and should get into the small squares this week. Want my leftovers??? (just kidding - I wouldn’t do that to you.....)

those star blocks just sparkle. I'd be tempted to just make blue sparkling stars. The little quilt is darling.

MartiDIY said...

That is one of my favorite blocks and yours look great. But then, I like blues best too.

You're doing a great job of chewing through your blue scraps! The stars are really pretty and a fun idea to make the doll quilt each month too.

Faye said...

an interesting concept for this years RSC - such a shame my little sewing machine is still broken.

Lisa said...

Those twinkle stars are just adorable but you seem to be really getting into the blue groove with all your blocks.
