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.
