Rainbow Scrap Challenge--August--Neutral

Since I've been using neutral strings in my monthly rainbow blocks, I'm using this month for neutral scraps in other projects.

My Leader & Ender project this year is a two rail fence--I want to make an Attic Stairs quilt (or five!).

I've got LOTS of blocks already, so I'm thinking I'll just keep making them and see how many donation quilts I wind up with. I'm using scrappy color/scrappy neutral pairs.

One of a gazillion!

I've also been working on a "What if I...?" quilt. When I was making Stringing Beads, I thought, "What if I used triangles instead of trapezoids in the middle of the blocks?" "Okay, what if I offset the blocks?" "Hmmm, how about if I control the colors?" I was designing a new quilt before I even finished the first one!

Individual blocks

Here is what I have thus far:

I'm thinking of calling it Boxes of Strings. I'm going to consider borders--not sure yet how I will finish it.

So, neutral strings, neutral L & Es, and the Sapphire Stars Mystery from Kevin the Quilter includes neutrals in this clue (Clue #3)--I'm keeping up with the challenge!

Sapphire Stars--Clue 2

I have finished the second clue of Kevin the Quilter's Sapphire Stars Mystery.

Here is a picture of a sampling of Clue 1 and Clue 2--I look forward to seeing what comes next!

As you can see, mine is Ruby Stars rather than Sapphire!

Thanks, Kevin, for the fun.
