2014 RSC, March Week 4, Goodnight Irene Progress, A RSC Finish


After a busy week in the sewing room, I'll add four 7" string teal blocks, a hot pad/pot holder and two cotton knitted dishcloths to my collections. I used two blocks pieced during last year's RSC to make the hot pad.
To see what others made with their teal scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.


Last year I made 9" crossroads blocks each month during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Week before last I pieced them together and added a couple borders. This week I quilted them with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at about 40" x 40". This is a donation baby quilt.
Thank you Connie for sharing the crossroads block pattern last year.


This month I added three rows to my Goodnight Irene quilt top. I'll add another row or two and a border next month. That will make it approximately 72" x 88" or a nice twin size. It's not too late to join the fun. You can find our host, Terry, by clicking the Goodnight Irene button on the side of my blog.


During the February Wilkes Quilters Guild meeting Clue 1, instructions for a Scrappy Mystery Quilt, was passed out to members. I'm making the 50" x 60" version. First clue is to cut 120 pieces of fabric from scraps. We get the second clue during our March meeting. When finished, I'll donate this quilt to the guild.

It's H2H time again! YAH! Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, is collecting quilts for three charities. To find out more about this quilt drive, click the button on the side of my blog. Please take a moment to visit her blog and think about making a donation quilt.

I am loving your teals. Love that 1/4th log cabin string you're making. What happened to the other things promised in the title?
I changed my mind about the Goodnight Irene. I had some cut, and could see that it was going to take me way too long to finish in time for the grandgirl wedding... so I'm making a quilt I saw on Wanda's blog. An 8" block segregated by 2 - 1" pieces. It looks like 2 people walking through life together... I've got a couple dozen blocks done. Goes together quite fast. & minutes per block (after cutting). Guess I should blog about it... show off some blocks.
Hugs

You updated your post - Tee Hee. I love all the teal you are working with. Irene is just beautiful. I am so tempted to pick up the crochet hook again - I still have those, but gave the knitting needles away a long time ago.

Love your crossroads (wishing for green next month so I can make one!) quilt. The Goodnight Irene quilt is coming along great - I have a set of fabrics I am planning to use for one - just need to clear a few things off before I can start that. Love the dish cloth colors.

Love the cross roads baby quilt. Some very lucky baby to get that. You have some many nice projects going on.

The rainbow crossroads is very pretty; what a lucky baby to get to sleep under that. Your teal blocks for this years rainbow are also fun. I wonder how you're going to put this one together.

You are getting a lot done, and that mystery quilt is going to be really pretty too, from the looks of those scraps!
