August fabrics - RSC

In the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, the color for August is to be pastel neutrals.  That just does not go with my Jack's Chain quilt I have been putting together, and I was at a loss as to how to proceed. 
I have this collection of Forever Love fabric by Eleanor Burns that I have been using to make my Star of Bethlehem quilt, which I finished last month.  Hmmmm...have not used these fabrics in any of the other months, and I have lots of pieces left, and I just love them - so I decided to make August my Star of Bethlehem month.
I did not use everyone of these fabrics in my quilt, but I had purchased a 5" collection of all the fabrics in the line which I used to select which of the fabrics I would use.  Therefore, I had enough different fabrics to complete the month requirements, plus had a few that did not make it to the RSC.
I will enjoy working on the nine patches as I just love these fabrics
I also completed a couple more blocks in the Moda Blockhead challenge:

Block 21
Block 20

Very nice ... and the blocks too!

Excellent solution to your August RSC challenge! Don't you just LOVE the way Angela encourages us to think "outside the box" when it comes to using our fabric scraps? I certainly do! The challenge has been SEW good for me and I hope it's equally as good for you, too.

Great idea to substitute and keep your Jacks Chain going. Keep up the good work!
