I found more yellow

More mellow yellow June blocks for the RSC Sampler. I made these today along with carting a couple of boxes of books to the studio.

I love the Alamo Star, and think it's my favourite block so far. Why?  Not because my seams are perfect because they aren't.  Because I got to use my new Tri Recs ruler to make it, and because when I first started quilting I joined an online group called Southern Cross Quilters, and this block is their logo.

I had loads of trouble with the framed 4-patch which should be really simple.  I had the wrong dimensions, then I adjusted them, but it still turned out too large.   Nothing a little trimming wouldn't fix though.

Mellow yellow

The colour for June's blocks in the Rainbow Scrap Sampler quilt is Yellow.   At first I didn't think I had any yellow fabric. But a bit of a rummage through the scrap box turned up something to work with and I've made a start on the blocks. 

I'm still working on finishing the green blocks May too.  I have over 50 blocks completed now.
