2014 RSC August Pastel Green Week 5, Happy Scrappy House Quilt and Rainbow Kittens Quilt Finishes


This is the last week of scrappy pastel green scraps and I'll add two 6.5" sampler blocks and three 5.5" coco mugs to my collections. Six crocheted spiral scrubbies made it into the picture. To see what others made with their scraps this week go here Saturday morning.


I quilted my Happy Scrappy House Quilt with a loose free motion meander and bound it with a purple print from my stash. This is a Bonnie Hunter free pattern from her Quiltville blog website found here.


I pulled some purple fabrics from my stash for the backing. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 80.5" x 92.5". I've been making house blocks for this quilt for three Rainbow Scrappy Challenge years and I'm happy it's all finished. I love it.


I also finished my Rainbow Kittens Quilt. Yah! The 8.5" rainbow kitten blocks are sashed with 2.5" purple strips. The inner border is a 1.5" yellow vine print and the outer border is a 3.5" purple print.


I pieced some purple prints from my stash for the backing. Used another stash purple print for the binding. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and after a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 58" x 69.5". My colorful little kittens are sitting in purple windows, living in a purple house quilt.
It was an extremely bright sunny day when these pictures were taken. Sorry about the glare on the quilts.

Oh my goodness you have been busy. I do like those spiral things. You must not have any purple left in your stash!! The house quilt is so fun and the kitties, too sweet.

You are really getting a lot done, and using a lot of stash too.

Wow, Congratulations on the finished projects, how nice. Love all your little green blocks and the scrubbies are adorable, love their colours.

Terri said...

Love, love, love your little houses! I went to look at Bonnie's and I have to say I love yours more. You used better sashing and your borders work better. Good Job! It was worth all the time, for me anyway. Lol

The kitties are wonderful, too. Did you use the same borders as on the houses?

Someday you will have a lovely finish on the mugs, too. The green ones are lovely. Can't wait to see the orange ones!

Thanks for sharing all these goodies! Lots of inspiration!
Hugs

Oh my goodness what a lot of finishes. I love your house quilt, it's spurred me on to do some more of Bonnie's houses! Kitties are cute too!

Oh, Sheila, you have outdone yourself this week - that house quilt is so pretty and the kitties are cute as can be. They are both really, really nice.

Cathy said...

Oh, what fun quilts! Congrats on two cute, cute finishes. I like the front and backs. I take it you like purple to have so much on hand to piece for backs.

Note to self...find your yarn scraps and get to work on some of those scrubbies you admire each week.

The Happy House block quilt is fabulous. The sashing and border fabric is perfect. Making the blocks month by month really paid off.

Karen said...

Your spiral things are awesome. I can only imagine how well they work. The house quilt is adorable. I love it. You have some great finishes.

Great orange blocks. I really like the second set of blocks too. Nice fabrics and lots of white.
