2015 RSC August Black Gray and White
After using all my 16 patch blocks in last week's RSC quilt finish, I've started making them again. If I make FOUR 16 patch blocks each month of the RSC year, I'll have 48 rainbow blocks for a quilt next year. Pictured are four 8.5" blocks in black, gray and white.
The scrappy log cabin blocks are addictive. I made 12 more this week. They found their way into the picture. To see what others made with their scraps, go here.
I'm working on a challenge piece for the annual quilt show. This is my work in progress. The opened ended theme is "Tree". Nothing more. No rules except it can't exceed 36" x 36" in size. This one will be about 23" x 35". After much thought, I decided to use my newly acquired Dresden Ruler and make a framed Dresden Forest. I used this cute little place mat as my inspiration. I'm auditioned frame borders. Add some beads? Buttons? Birds? When it's finished, if I don't think it will work for the show, I'll just hang it in my house.
