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".

2018 RSC June Turquoise Week 2, Pink Themed Eye of God Quilt FInish

A couple weeks work here... Pictured are five 16 patch blocks, a thirty-six patch block, a happy house block, a 2018 RSC sampler block and a small scrappy pot holder made form two orphan blocks.  WOW. I just saw the mistake in the sampler block. I'll have to fix that!

I pulled some string blocks made last year during the RSC to make this pink themed Eye of God block quilt. The backing is bright pink.  After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 65" x 83". I'll put this one on Mother's bed.
My goodness! What is up with blogger and Google. I see that I have comments on my last post that didn't go to by email. Sure hope they fix that ........

2018 RSC May Pink Week 4 String Baby Quilt

I love sewing string blocks in each month's rainbow colors. This week I pulled and sashed 16 of them for a charity baby quilt that finished at about 39" square. I'll donate it during our June quilt guild meeting.

My third Growing Up Odd block is pictured above as well as two 2018 sampler blocks. Made a couple super scrappy pot holders this week. The HSTs were from my orphan box collection. Not making it into the picture was a pretty pink themed doll quilt and a two sided large flannel receiving blanket. Both were donated before I thought to take a picture.

2018 RSC May Pink Week 3

Still catching up for those lost RSC weeks. Yes. I'm making more colorful RSC Bonnie Hunter house blocks. I'm addicted. May turn them into another quilt, some pot holders, mug rugs. Don't know. I just like to make these blocks. Thought I'd try out the RSC 2018 Sampler Blocks. Aren't they cute. And fun, too.
I decided to make another "Growing Up Odd" block. That makes, two blocks. I chose a light pink fabric for sashing.  These blocks are fun to make. Another super scrappy pot holder made it into the picture.

2018 RSC May Pink Week 2, String blocks, Tote Bag, Doll Quilt, Pillowcases, Growing Up Odd Block

Still catching up this month with colorful blocks in five colors. I used pages torn from a phone book for the foundation of these blocks. Three super scrappy pot holders made it into the picture. Can never have enough of these to give away.

Pictured is a doll quilt, a couple pillow cases and a tote bag for some great grand kids. Fun stuff!

Goodness knows I don't need to start another project, but here goes the start of a "Growing Up Odd" quilt block. Here is a link to a free tutorial for the block and quilt.

Happy Mother's Day!

2018 May Pink and Rose, Week 1, 16-Patch Blocks, 36-Patch blocks, Doll Quilts

I've some Rainbow Scrap Challenge catching up to do in the coming months. Because 16-patch blocks are so much fun to sew and versatile, I decided to make more this RSC year. My plan is to make five in each month's RSC year. Apparently I forgot to count this year. Two light blue blocks and six purple blocks. Don't know what is going on here.

I love 36-patch blocks, too. I'll try at least one each RSC month.

I'm still sewing up scraps and orphan blocks to make doll quilts to give away. Love sewing doll quilts.

2018 RSC January Light Blue, RSC 16-Patch Quilt Finish, Captain America Panel Quilts, Charity Baby Quilt, Scrappy Pot Holders,

My stack of  colorful RSC 16-patch blocks made last year and the year before are now a colorful RSC quilt. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 63" x 85".

I bought a couple Captain America Panels for two Great-grandsons. An addition red border border made them a little larger. They were quilted with a large free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer they finished about 40" x 45". They were Christmas gifts.

I sashed nine colorful blocks from my UFO box to make a donation baby quilt that I'll turn in next week during our January guild meeting. It finished at 37.5" x 37.5".

A plastic tub of very small scraps is my source of super scrappy pot holders. I make them throughout the year and gift them mainly at Christmas. All I make last year were given away. Pictured are my first six of 2018. Only one scrappy blue potholder. A very slow RSC start. Looks like a busy scrappy light blue week in my future.
