2015 RSC May Green Week 3 and My RSC Cocoa Mugs Quilt Finished
I'm still making fabric from scrappy green crumbs. The two 8.5" crumb blocks I made last week became a pot holder this week. Yah. I made two MORE 8.5" crumb blocks that I'll turn into a pot holder this week. Two 4.5" green crumb blocks and two cotton knitted dishcloths will be added to my collections. To see what others made with their green scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.
During the RSC last year I made 5.5" Cocoa Mug blocks using Lori Holt's mug pattern found in her "Quilty Fun" pattern book. This year I made twelve 5.5" scrappy string blocks to go with the mug blocks to made a colorful RSC lap quilt. The blocks are sashed with 2" Kona white fabric and 2" squares cut from scraps. The 3" border is a fun blue print. The binding is a purple on purple vine print.
To continue with the a RSC quilt theme, I pieced the backing with strips of fabric from my stash in rainbow spectrum color order. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. It was quilted with a loose free motion meander and after a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 48" x 60". I'm happy to have finished this cute RSC quilt that was a year and a half in the making. I think I'll keep this one for myself ... for awhile.
