Rainbow Scrap Challenge: Purple in My Stars

February hasn't been one of my more fun months.  The weather has been pretty yucky, with more of that on the way for this weekend.  Plus work seems never ending this month.  Most of today will be dedicated to work, I have three reports due ASAP.  Powering through those today should mean I have time for some stitching tomorrow.  

Two Squared Away blocks in purple have been started, but both are far from finished.  The only bit of purple I have to show for this week is two Sawtooth Stars.



The plan is to use these 4" blocks as the border for my 2014 Rainbow Scrap Project.  I've shown the final plan before, but it's been a while.

Inverted Star is my July UFO, at least that's what was planned back in December.  

Linking up with Soscrappy for Saturday's parade of purple blocks.  On Sunday the Oh Scrap linky party goes live.  Now I'm off to get in a bit of catching up on email and blog reading before I tackle that first report.

  3. What a great layout (I'd not seen it before) - it's going to be an amazing quilt! When work starts getting to me, I try to remember that's what I do so I can afford "therapy" (fabric)! Hope it eases up soon for you, though.

  5. Those are such beautiful purple stars! I guess I should get my sawtooth star quilt from RSC out from a couple of years ago and finish it.

  6. It's crummy here, too - 60 degrees on Thursday, but the snow started yesterday again and is still here today. Ugh! Your planned layout for the Inverted Stars quilt is wonderful, and the Sawtooth Stars border will be beautiful. Hope you get a little stitching time in this weekend!

  23. Hope the reports didn’t chew up too much of your weekend. I spent three hours on my work computer yesterday morning catching up on email! I’ve had a busy few weeks and was way behind, but it feels great now to have 3/4 of the messages deleted or filed. I love your star blocks and look forward to seeing that quilt come together!
