Summer Star Scrappy Sew Along Progress

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


I'm participating in the Summer Star Scrappy Sew Along hosted by Diane at Butterfly Threads Quilting.  I make a rainbow whenever I can, so my quilt is planned rather than scrappy.  


Here's my colored 9 patches.  Each colorway has 9 Kona cotton solids in it, and there are 11 9-patches in each pile which is enough for the star and the border sections.  I worked it out in EQ7 to see how many of each block type are needed.  This week I'll be working on background blocks.  Stop by again to see the quilt come together - it will be stunning!

Save 30% off pattern downloads at Annie's on Sunday with the code SOAKUP.  Their Jelly Bean Dreamin' pattern is on my to-do list to use up some Bonnie and Camille scraps!
