2015 RSC February Pink Week 2, Sweet 16 blocks, Let's Book It Quilt


During this second week of the RSC I turned the two 8.5" crumb blocks I made last week into a hot pad. Then I made another pink 8.5" crumb block and three 4.5" pink crumb blocks. Hard to believe, but I found another small collection of scraps to work through a few days ago. It will be good to have all my scraps and stash organized this year.
To see what others made with pink, go here Saturday morning.
Also pictured are four more Sweet Sixteen Blocks. I now have twenty.
Two scrappy pink themed batik 6"x 10" mug rugs made it into the picture as well as a pink cotton knitted dishcloth. The mug rugs and dishcloth were inspired by Wanda at Exuberent Color.


Not wanting to wait until the last minute for my Let's Book It project, I pulled a 2013 pattern book by Me and My Sister Designs called 3 Times The Charm Book 2 and used the pattern on page 6 called INGRID. All the patterns are charm friendly, but I went to my scraps and in no time put together this little boy friendly baby quilt. No pink or purple fabrics in this quilt. Few if any floral prints. Lots of blues, greens, orange, bugs, frogs, fish, vehicles, action heroes, etc. So it should work nicely for a little guy. I will link this post to Sharon Vrooman's blog at the end of the month.



Here is the front. Lots of blue, green and orange.


Here is the back. Fish. Everything came from stash and scraps. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer, it turned out a sweet 36" x 41.5". I like all 21 quilt options in their book. This will be a charity quilt.
