Scrappy Saturday

Aquamarine is the colour of the month for February over at the RSC. I gathered up the Alamo Star blocks with backgrounds that are somewhere between blue and green, and sewed them together in 4 patch arrangements. The colour of the star is not a factor when I'm laying out these blocks, only the background fabric is considered. But when I see them in the photo, I am wishing I spent some time organizing the balance of the warm colours. But hey, it's a scrappy quilt and I am learning to cope with "random"! There were enough stars to make 12 blocks. You can see the 9 purple blocks from last month here

I love these blocks!

Oh how I love those stars. And after En Provence, I'm not as intimidated by the peaky/spike units. So hmmm...I notice that there is a circle formed when the stars come together that is just as intriguing as those awesome stars.

Nice blocks, and I do like the idea of using the monthly colour as the background, clever idea.

I am leaving my email address because it has been pointed out to me that I am a "no reply" blogger. I am not too good at this blog thing, but I will change that as soon as I figure out how to do it!

I think the random blocks look just fine. I would not have noticed had you not mentioned it. I went back and looked again. They are good! Perhaps you are looking to closely.
