2015 RSC August Black Gray White, Week 5 and a Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt Finish
It's been a busy week and all I have to show for the black, gray and white scrappy sewing is this pot holder. Oops. I forgot to add a hanging loop. Where's my seam ripper.
To see what others made with their scraps go here.
Quilt guild meeting was last week. I made four 8.5" patriotic blocks to donate. I also made a small child size Laurel Burch cat print tote to sell in the quilt show's boutique. Money collected will help buy supplies for charity projects.
My "Let's Book It" scrappy log cabin quilt is finished and I love it. The white sashing and solid borders calms the scrappy blocks. The binding is red with small white flowers. Their tiny centers are blue, turquoise, red, yellow, pink, and orange.
The backing is a happy yellow print. To make two vertical widths of fabric to work, I added a row of blocks for extra length. The yellow sashing between the blocks make them look like they are floating. After quilting and a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 66" x 85.5". Shrunk quite a bit. It will be difficult to part with this one : )
This quilt is a "Let's Book It Project" that I started last month. This post showing the finished quilt will be linked to Sharon Vrooman's "Let's Book It" blog post this month.
