I wanted to make a clever connection between blue scraps to Elvis' Blue Suede shoes in honor of his birthday today, but I'm just not that clever ...
I pieced this 7-1/2 by 9 inch quilt-let from my blue scraps in the evenings after work this week. I hope to quilt and bind it this weekend and take it into the office and put it to good use as a mug rug next week. Coincidentally, on her blog this week, Angela blogged about using blue strings to make star blocks. As you might guess from the heart block I featured in my little mug rug project (and the string heart in the Block Lotto Blog Button quilt), I enjoy using strings as fabric, too.
I also kept putting my triangle squares together and have completed eight 8-inch blocks.
I am liking them and know I will like them more when I start adding blocks in other colors. I'm already looking forward to finding out what the color for February will be. I confess I am also seriously considering spending some extra salary (from some OT this week) on a GO Baby to make cutting all those triangles from scraps a little faster.
