Scrappy Saturday - Alamo Stars

It's Canada's 150th birthday today and I wrote about it here yesterday so that today I could show the Rainbow Scrap Challenge stitchers my yellow progress this month.

I was able to get all my Alamo Star blocks with yellow backgrounds sewn into 4 patch units! I had to match up a few of the yellows with some darker background blocks using oranges and browns, but I'm happy with them. These 64 star blocks have been sewn into 16 four patch blocks. Let's not mention that I'm still working on the green ones from last month and will now start working on the blue ones also! 
Hop over to the RSC link up to see what the scrap quilters are working on today.

They look beautiful! If you finished off all your projects, you wouldn't have anything to work on. It is all about the progress and the process. Enjoy!

Happy Sesquicentennial Canada Day, Kathy!!
Trying to figure out a way to make it special for my MIL in her nursing home room. I think at least a flag, and maybe some streamers.
Those little stars are too cute for words. Is this the year you sew them all into a top?!?

The range of yellows and golds makes this quilt so rich! It's going to be a beauty. :D

Wow so many done. How big are these blocks?

These are so beautiful. Love yellow backgrounds, and the darker backgrounds add extra special interest to the blocks.

Still loving those alamo stars. The yellow just sets them off so beautifully.

One step closer to joining up into a quilt top, yay!

A very colorful group of blocks with yellow. You are on the right track. The other colors should be great. Keep up the good work!

Angie said...

It's so much fun to see these twinkly little stars keep taking shape!

Now that the little Alamo stars are in four patch arrangement it should be easier to work with. My recollection is that they're pretty tiny. The yellow look smashing.
