Wonderful World of Colour Blog Hop

 This hop is hosted by Joan at MooseStash Quilting, the challenge was to make something inspired by the world of colour. 
Scraps lend themselves to the use of many colours and when tamed into an eye-pleasing design they become the star of the quilt.

taming of the scraps into crumb blocks

I did a little sorting of some (there are too many to do them all) of my scraps. The job didn't get finished before, way before. Okay if I'm being honest I never did finish sorting them, the sewing machine was calling my name. And off I went full steam ahead just sewing scraps together into crumb blocks. This type of sewing is a no think just grab a scrap and sew it to the previous pieces. Sometimes all we need is mindless sewing. 

a few of the crumb blocks

I trimmed the crumb blocks into 6 1/2'' squares, added a neutral 6 1/2'' scrap, and made 5 1/2'' HST's. 

I used two crumbs blocks for each star

I debated with me, myself and I, we had quite the conversation, as to whether the centres of the friendship stars were going to be white or a solid colour. The white won out, this time.

The next decision border, yes or no. A pieced scrappy border, a solid border. Please let me know what you think.

Unfortunately, this is as far as I got, which is a first for me. I always have a finished project for these blog hops, but I ran out of time to complete it.  Oh and that border decision didn't help any.

Now let's see what wonderful colour projects my fellow blog members have come up with today.
