This week I was able to make a couple of monkey blocks to add to my collection! It turns out these sweet little blocks don't require a whole lot of cutting when you make the HSTs four at a time out of two charm squares, and use string bits and pieces for the rest of the block. These went together quite quickly and easily!
I also completed my sixth 16 patch block, so I have all of those blocks that I need for the month.
Aren't these polka dots fun? The selvage on the fat quarter says LOL by Me and My Sister Designs.
Looking at my green bin, I realized that I really haven't made a dent in those scraps, and there are plenty of strings to still use in some way, so I decided to make a couple of string blocks and turn them into little coasters or mug rugs for the table where my husband and I have our coffee every morning.
I've been trying to make a couple of these for each month's colors and I have 4 sets now. They are a fun, satisying, and quick project! I used a little more of those green polka dots for the backing.
Maybe this week I can tackle my Scrap Jar Stars. They require the most cutting and trimming of all of my RSC blocks, but if I do a little bit at a time, I can do it!
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been up to at Angela's ScrapHappy Saturday link up tomorrow!
