In January my scrap strips bins ( especially the 2 1/2 inch strips) were overflowing, so I decided it was time to get started.
I have never been organised enough to have a blog post ready for Saturday, so today I have finally managed it.
In view of the fact that I wanted to use 2 1/2 inch strips, and that the resulting quilt would eventually be gifted, I decided on Bonnie Hunter's Boxy Stars for my block.
My goal was to 3 or 4 of each colour.
January's blue with purple was an easy enough colour, but February's Brown with pink was a challenge. I hardly ever use brown, so lots of pink was added. I only managed 2 decent blocks and one paler one, which will need to be replaced.
March's Purple also proved difficult. I didnt realise how few purples I used. I did have plenty of F Qs of it so I scraped together 3 blocks
April-another one which surprised me. While I have plenty in my stash and had been using a lot of orange in for the Fancy Fox quilt, there was not much in my scrap bins. Again the stash of FQs came in handy
My April oranges
So, here are my 4 months' blocks
I am joining in with up with the Soscrappy Saturday linky.
