2018 RSC October, 16-Patch Large Quilt, 16-Patch Baby Quilt, Captain America Quilt, Three Doll Quilts, Two Tote Bags

Colorful Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks made during the year become quilts in October, November and December. Pictured above is a 16-Patch quilt. After a go in the washer and dryer it measures about 60" x 77".

Sixteen 16-Patch blocks become a charity baby quilt.
To see what others made with rainbow fabric, go here Saturday morning.

This Captain America quilt is a UFO from last year. It finished at 55.5" x 80" and is for Jacob.

Two tote bags.

Three doll quilts. I made three more doll quilts, but they made it out the door before a picture was taken

2018 RSC September Blue Week 4, Blue Blocks, 36-Patch Quilt Finish, String Baby Quilt Finish

This is the last week of September's RSC blue scraps. Pictured are some pretty blue blocks. Love, love, love blue. To see what others made with blue scraps, go here Saturday morning.

I pulled 16 string blocks from last year's RSC collection and made a charity baby quilt. I donated it during our monthly quilt guild meeting last week. It was about 41" square.

Next I pulled the 36-patch blocks made during this RSC year and make a throw quilt. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 51" x 62".

2018 RSC August Week 4 Growing Up Odd Baby Quilt Finish and Two Doll Quilts

No orange RSC pieces to show this week. I'm looking forward to working with September's RSC color. Pictured above is a finished baby quilt using four Growing Up Odd blocks sashed with a pretty pink. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and finished at 39" square. This is a charity quilt that I'll turn in during our quilt guild meeting today.

I'll also turn in these two colorful doll quilts that will go to Ebeneezer.
Next weekend is our annual quilt show. I'm still working on my quilt show challenge piece. My next post post will have pictures of quilts from our show.

2018 RSC August Orange, RSC Fun With Crayons Quilt Finish

A finish this week! I'm calling it "Fun With Crayons." I made the scrappy 5" wide string crayons last year. Here they are sashed with 2" Kona White strips. I added 5" string blocks on the left. The block patterns for the five 12.5" blocks on the right are from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. The inner yellow border was 1.5" wide strips. The turquoise outer border was 5" wide. The binding is pieced with 10" strips in rainbow color order. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and finished at 68" x 84".

2018 RSC July Red Week 4

Red is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge July color. I love red. Pictured are five 16-patch blocks, four string blocks, a happy house block, a 36-patch block and a RSC sampler block. To see what others made with red fabric, go here Saturday morning.

Last month Mother had an autonomic stroke. She had several strokes in the past, but this one was worse than the others. Hospice was called and Mother passed last week. Hospice was wonderful. They took good care of Mother and us.
Mother loved God. She loved everyone. She was at a point in her life that most of her friends and all her family, parents and 12 siblings, had passed. I imagine that she is in heaven, smiling, laughing and happy to see them again. I'll miss her.

2018 RSC June Turquoise, Turquoise String Block Quilt Finish

When my mind is busy with family issues, sewing strips of fabric on pages of phone book paper is the ticket. I'm happy to have finished a Turquoise String Block Quilt this month. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at about 55" x 75".

Each of the foundation phone book pages are cut to 7.75" x 7.75".
