Wrapping up the Blues

The color was blue, the challenge met

Seven Twinkle Stars for the column-along ...

... and note the strip of sashing on the right from some 1-1/2" leftovers.

In the process I pulled out a UFO, also blue

Smith Mountain Morning
For my first time participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I did OK.

Reporting in with Angela at So Scrappy.


  1. I think you did more than ok! It's my first year participating, too, and I am finding it lots of fun and there is lots of good inspiration out there!

  2. You did great Libby!! Congrats on getting such wonderful blocks done! It's my first year too and am totally enjoying this. Have fun!

  3. Time to rock that Bonnie Hunter UFO... it will be a WONDERFUL quilt!!!

  4. So many pretty blue projects on the go, I really like the blue and chocolate Smith Mountain Morning.

  5. You did more than OK for the blue month. Go ahead and keep out that UFO cause February is brown.

  6. Go, Libby! (You did better than OK!)

  7. Great job, Libby! All of your blocks are beautiful. Blue is the one color I don't have a lot of and I really like blue!

  8. Lots of pretty blue blocks. I love the fussy cut centers of your Twinkle Stars, very pretty.
