2015 RSC Mid-Year Progress
This year I'm making an effort to use up those scrappy bits of fabric, crumbs and trimmings, that have collected in the bottoms of my scrap boxes through the years. This picture of pot holder/hot pads made with crumbs is incomplete as I've given some of them away and some were donated to sale in our guild's Boutique during our annual quilt show in September.
Five scrappy batik mug rugs are pictured in the bottom row. Again, that collection is incomplete as I've given some of them away.
I need twelve of these 12.5" blocks to make a small quilt.
Some of the 8.5" blocks in the picture were left over from last year. I need 48 blocks to sash for a quilt. Or I could pull fewer blocks for small donation quilts. A stack of colorful 8.5" blocks is most versatile.
Earlier this year, I turned my collection of RSC cocoa mug blocks into a quilt. I also turned my collection of RSC 5" tumblers cut from scraps during 2013 into a quilt.
To see the mid-year progress of others, go here.
Thank you, Angela, for hosting the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
These four 8.5" red, white and blue blocks are ready to turn in during our guild's July meeting.
