2016 RSC January Blue Week 4
I love blue and am happy "blue" comes during a five week month like January. Because there has been more sewing area organization and scrap management this week than sewing, I don't have a lot to blog about. I'm still working on tumbler units and Star Gazing blocks, a Let's book It project. I'll post progress pictures later this month or next.
In past RSC years, I've enjoyed watching other RSC participants sew Bonnie Hunter Boxy Stars blocks in rainbow colors. This year it will be one of my RSC projects. Pictured is my first Boxy Star block in blue. I'm going to sew the darker shades of each RSC color in the center of the block to create more of a star block pattern. The Boxy Stars pattern can be found here.
My super scrappy pot holders were a hit last year so I decided to make two a month this year. I have a plastic tub of small scraps and trimmings I can't bear to toss in the trash. They are perfect for scrappy projects like colorful hot pads and pot holders.
To see what others made during the RSC week go here.
I'm happy today is sunny and the snow and ice is beginning to melt. Because the roads are still covered in the icy mix, today will be a good day to continue sewing area organization as well as sew more blocks.
