2015 RSC July Red Week 4, A RSC Quilt Top


This is not a very good picture of my finished quilt top, but it's ready batting for a backing. I started making these 8.5" blocks midway through last year's RSC and needed 48 for a nice little quilt. The blocks are sashed with Kona white 2" strips and 2" cornerstone squares. The 3" green border pulls together and calms the scrappy blocks. I have a yellow print for the backing. Hopefully I'll quilt and bind this quilt top this week and post pictures of the finished quilt next week. I also have a few red project in progress that I'll finish and show next week, too.
To see what others made with their red scraps, go here Saturday morning.

Love the way you used four simple blocks and so many colors to give it such great variety. I might do something like that next for next year's RSC, no HSTs to worry about. Congrats on a lovely, lively top.
