2013 RSC November, Brown, Week 4, and a Baby Quilt Finish


After playing with some brown scraps, I'll add two 8.5" blocks and two knitted dishcloths to my collections. Lucky me. I had enough of the yummy variegated yellow yarn to make this second yellow dishcloth.
Though I have more brown scraps, I decided to start sewing together some of the blocks I've made this year during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
To see what others made with their brown scraps this week, go here.


I didn't want my sweet Quilty Habit Lantern Sew Along baby quilt top to be a UFO for long ... so I pulled some of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge 8.5" blocks to sew into a backing.


Look at that backing. Got carried away with those 8.5" blocks. Oh well. I like both sides. This little number is quilted with a loose free motion meander and bound with a bright lime green binding. After a go in the washer and dryer, this soft little donation baby quilt finished at 37" x 38".

Either of those quilts would be so cute on their own. Together -- double fun! What great colors!

I haven't been able to read many blogs lately so I had a lot of catching up to see what you have been doing. The double sided baby quilt is wonderful. I love the lantern blocks, using the rainbow blocks for the backing makes it amazing.
The batik Puzzle Quilt is beautiful. The colors work well together.
Congratulations on your prize winning quilt. Lori Holt's quilt along blocks were really cute and your finished quilt interpreted them beautifully. It's no surprise that you won at your Guild show and online.

Double sided! What a great quilt. I want to be like you, Sheila, when I grow up. You're ahead of the game!

Both sides of the quilt is adorable. I like the idea of having two quilts in one.

I would be hard pressed to decide which side was the "front" if I was given that gorgeous quilt! I have been piecing backings lately, but not a patch on you :-) Well done.
