January Blues

The only blues I've had this month have been in the sewing studio, and there have been a lot of them in there!

Early in the month, I made a few blue bow ties -


and two blue blocks for the Squared Away sampler - 


Plus a couple of blue Scrappy Sprouts blocks, just for the heck of it!



This week I finished up my light/medium blue 10 inch Tiny Rails block - 


I'm up to 7 of these, including a dark blue one.


I've also been playing some more with Sawtooth Stars, in the 6 inch size.


I might have a plan started here!


I've been enjoying this journey through the month of January!  Want more blue inspiration?  Check out all the other Rainbow Scrap Quilters for the ScrapHappy Saturday link-up at SoScrappy!
