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.

so much accomplished. This has been the best tour today! The red white and blue blocks are way cool. I forget the power of two different blocks side by side for impact. Scraps make it all so much more interesting.

Where to begin?? I have always looked forward to seeing your pot holders/hot pads and your mug rugs each time you post and how wonderful they look all laid out there.

Great use of crumbs!

Jennifer said...

Dasha said...

Great projects! Interesting isn't it. After beavering away for half the year you see a few blocks at a time, but setting out the blocks in a row like that emphasises the huge amount done. Well done
