2015 RSC May Green Week 2 and Hands 2 Help Sweet Sixteen Quilt Finished
After a second week of playing with green scraps, a 12.5" block made with four 6.5" string blocks, two 5.5" string blocks and a pot holder made using the two 8.5" crumb blocks I made last week will be added to my collections. The two new 8.5" crumb blocks in the picture will be made into a pot holder this week. A cotton knitted dishcloth made it into the picture. To see what others made with their green scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.
My Hands 2 Help Quilt made with Sweet Sixteen blocks is finished. The 48 Sweet Sixteen blocks made with 2.5" squares cut from scraps are sashed with 2.5" light gray strips and 2.5" squares.
The row of small squares pieced into the backing is eight Sweet Sixteen blocks sewed together. The backing fabric is a soft pale gray with a light brown print and the binding is a blue on blue print. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 61" x 80". This quilt will go to a local charity, Ebenezer Family, that provides a safe, loving place for children that have been removed from their homes because of abuse or neglect. They currently care for 38 children ages 3 to 21. I'll deliver this quilt May 26th.
