Scrappy Saturday

I'm working away on my collection of Alamo star blocks. 
 I've been making blocks for almost 5 years and this year I am sewing them together into 4 patch blocks with two light colour backgrounds and two dark backgrounds. The star colours in each four patch are random, which I constantly remind myself does not mean "evenly placed"!!  Here are a four more finished green 4 patches from May, and eight blues from this month. The 4 patch blocks measure 4".
To see more Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects, hop over to the weekly link up.

You have been so patient to work on these blocks for 5 years!! I love these teeny stars. How large will the quilt be? Are you finished making stars, or are you still slipping in a new one now and then?
