2015 RSC January Blue Week 5, Sweet 16, QOV blocks
I'm still slowly working up scraps and organizing my sewing area. After playing with blue skinny trimmings, I had a 12.5" string block. I sewed skinny strings onto four 6.5" pieces of phone book paper. After tearing away the paper, I sewed the four blocks together to make the single block. This large blocks could be the center of a child quilt or the first of 12 blocks for a large lap quilt. Two 4"x 8" scrappy blue batik mug rugs are beside the large block in the picture.
To see what other made with their blue scraps, go here Saturday morning.
Eight "Sweet 16" blocks for a future Hands2Help charity quilt are in the bottom of the picture.
Our quilt guild met Tuesday. I donated these four 8.5" red/white/blue patriotic blocks and the Dr Seuss baby quilt I made earlier this month. Step One of our guild's Mystery Quilt 2015 was passed out during our meeting. They are always fun and I'll post more about the first clue later.
