2022 has not brought me as much time to sew as I would like so far, but I couldn’t resist sneaking in another sew-a-long.
Over the last couple of years, I’ve watched several of you do the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I decided this year is the year to join in. January’s colour is Red, so I dug through my scrap bin, got out some graph paper, and came up with this big beauty.
Because my sewing time is more limited, I decided to do just one block each month. To compensate for that, I made it big one. This a a modified carpenter star, and it’s 16.5″ big. At the end of the year, I’ll have 12 of them, and with some sashing and a border, it will be enough for a good-sized lap quilt.
