2015 RSC September Orange Week 3, The Everything Bag, Doll Quilt, RSC Quilt Top in Progress
I'll turn these two 8.5" orange crumb blocks into a pot holder this week. Two cotton knitted dishcloths made it into the picture. They're scrappy because I used yarn left from making other dishcloths. To see what others made with orange fabrics, go here Saturday morning.
This week I sashing my 12.5" RSC Eye of God blocks. It will be a lap top size quilt. Here I'm auditioning border treatments and colors. I want to finish this quilt top, piece a backing, sandwich the two with batting and bast it with safety pins by next Saturday.
I made a scrappy doll quilt for a great grand child this week. After a go in the washer and dryer I think it will finish at about 18" x 18". The backing is a purple turtle print. I see my shadow made it into the picture.
I've wanted to sew "The Everything Bag" for awhile. This week I pulled some 2.5" strips from my collection and gave it a go. The only thing I changed about the pattern was I inserted 1.5" batting strips into the handles.
This is one side.
This is the other side. Both sides and the handles were quilted with vertical lines using my sewing machine's walking foot. It was easy to make.
