Blue Monday

First, scrappy blue stars on the design wall:

Blue star blocks

After correcting my bad math and ideas about color, I'm now aiming at averaging 17 blocks each in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and tan/brown. Today I made more of the blue blocks, but stopped at 13 when I ran out of "light" blues in the scrap bin.

In other blue news, I quilted and bound the blue scrap mug rug . . .  and took it for a trial run this afternoon.

It's all set to go into the office and add a little color and whimsy to my very boring beige office.

I had a couple more blue projects (new and WIPs) in mind for the rainbow scraps challenge--with a week to go until the end of the month, I'm not sure how many will be completed before we move onto a new color for February.

Very beautiful!
What are you going to make from the blocks in the different colors?

You all are so generous with your compliments. Thank you. Gail asked about my plans for the stars--I blogged an inspirational photo at the bottom of this blog post on Tools and Gadgets.

What a beautiful arrangement of blue scrappy blocks you have accumulated so far! And your blue mug rug is SO CUTE. I have to take our last weekend to make more progress and hopefully have some finishes in blue. I've started several things, but they all need my attention.

I found myself inspired this week to start one more scrappy blue project this weekend ... we'll see if e get there. I'm going to make myself finish a mostly blue scrappy UFO first. Finish something, start something else.
