So much for my thought of putting the new Accuquilt dies away until Christmas. While sorting though the string drawer looking for neutrals I spent a little time sorting the different colors of scraps. Because there was too much blue to fit into the blue jar, I "needed" to use some up. The string scraps were the perfect size to try out the new 60 degree diamond die. One of the new project I'm thinking about starting next year is a monochromatic scrap challenge. One color each month with a scrap related project of some sort. I'm still in the planning stages, but I'm thinking blue for January, red for February and green for March. I don't think I can come up with enough colors, so maybe a few months can be combination months; green and red for December, red white and blue for July. Like I said, it's still in the thinking stages. It might be a fun way to use up some scraps. So while mulling this over, I tried out a blue crumb star.
