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".

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!
To see what others made with their scraps, go here Saturday morning.

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.
