Still Making a Mystery

I'm still working on the mystery from another quilting forum--you remember, the one with the crazy eyeball fabric!

Here is my alternate block.

Here is the star block.

The eyeballs seem a bit less crazy when placed in the block. Still plenty of work ahead for me on this one, but I am pleased with the design.

Thanks, Judy. The mystery thread on the Quilting Board forum can be found HERE.

The first clue about fabric selection and amounts needed is Post #1.

The second clue is at Post #143.

The third clue is at Post #255. (There is a mistake in this clue--the HSTs and the light squares should be cut at 2" [not 2.5"].)

The final clue is at Post # 458 (Another small error--you will need 48 [not 24] 2" squares of each the light and the dark for snowballing.)

Rainbow Scrap Challenge--February--Aquamarine

I'm participating in  the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year. You can find out about it at soscrappy. The February color is aquamarine.

This is not a favorite color for me, but even so, I found lots of scraps to use!

Here are some of my string blocks. I was just playing around with a layout here; I've no idea how it will end up! Some are full string blocks, and some are half neutral/half color.

Add these to last month's purple. Though they aren't pictured, I did some of the half neutral/half color blocks for this set too.

This challenge is a lot of fun--I'm using up strings and getting to play with color--win/win!
