2014 RSC October, Black, Gray, Brown, Week 2, Puppy blocks, Rainbow Triangles Finished, and A WIN
I had fun making these puppy blocks with 2.5" squares. The blocks are 8 squares by 9 squares making large blocks. They look wonky because of the camera angle. They aren't : )
To see what other made with their scraps, go here Saturday morning.
The scrappy rainbow triangles made during the last two RSC years, are now a finished baby quilt.
The backing is pieced with a purple dragonfly print. I didn't have quite enough so I added a row of orphan rainbow blocks. It's quilted with a free motion meander and bound with a black on white print. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 35" x 42.5". Feels good to have another finish.
I linked pictures of four children's quilts that I made and donated this year in the "100 Quilts For Kids" quilt challenge hosted by Heather at QuiltsInTheQueue. One of my linked quilts was drawn and I won a Homebody fabric bundle designed by Kim Kight and donated by Pam Matthews of DelRay Fabrics! Twelve fat quarters and a 2/3 yd piece of beautiful, soft fabrics. Thank you Heather and Pam Matthews for sponsoring this challenge. My quilt that was drawn was a mystery quilt challenge project my guild hosted earlier this year. The quilt went to one of our guild's quilt charities for children in need.
Here is my BH Celtic Solstice Mystery quilt hanging in the Wilkes County Public Library. Just bragging and showing off here :D
