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

FYI! Scrap Quilt Challenge 4 hosted by Fabrics N Quilts is coming to a close. Link your scrap quilts by October 15th. There are several awesome prizes! Click Shannon's "Scrap Quilt Challenge 4" button on the side of my blog for rules and instructions. Link up before time runs out.

Congratulations on winning. Your quilt is stunning. I love the little doggies. You might need to make some kitties and put them in the same quilt.

Hi Sheila! Lucky you! What gorgeous fabric you won! I looked through my finishes for the year, but nothing scrappy. Your doggy blocks are adorable! Such a fun way to use blacks, browns, and grays. See you Saturday!

I LOVE your puppy blocks. I added those to my on-going list for the RSC. Congrats on your win. It's so much fun to win fabric. Good luck on what prize you will win on the Scrap Challenge 4. I entered that one too. There are soooo many prizes in that one! Your Celtic Solstice is gorgeous -- especially with the big blue ribbon on it! :)

Terri said...

I missed your blog while I was buying my new house!
So happy to see you won a blue ribbon... you deserve it. The CS quilt is gorgeous! And you won some fabric, too. Good for you.
Now starting some Scotties, or Digital Dogs? Love it. Will you be making other colors? You know there are red dogs, and carmel colored breeds, too. Looking forward to getting a pooch after we move. Do you have one?
Hugs
