String Star Progress

It's the third week of April, and time again to share what we've been doing for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  This week I got out my paper plate of string blocks, checked the plan, and decided to make some of the low volume/neutral blocks that I need.


I cut some muslin squares for the foundations that I needed - 


and went in search of a few low volume strings that would work for these blocks.


Before I knew it, I had stitched up a few more blocks for my String Star!


Here's a bit of the layout, and you can see in the corners where the neutral blocks will go.


I still need quite a few more of the neutral blocks (20 total), so I'll keep making them as the year goes on. The purple blocks are not actually the row right next to red in my plan - that honor goes to orange.  Maybe next month?!
