2015 RSC October Brown Week 2, Pooh Charity Baby Quilt, Hopscotch Progress
These four brown Happy Scrappy House blocks will be added to my RSC collection. I plan for all the colorful houses in this fun RSC quilt to be occupied. To see what others made with their brown fabrics go here.
These red/white/blue patriotic 8.5" blocks are ready to donate at the next guild meeting.
This little Pooh print backed strip quilt is finished. I bought the yard of Pooh fabric I used for the backing in a clearance bin a couple years ago.
The front is strips of fabric from my 2.5" scrappy strip collection that blend with the Pooh print backing. Two of the strips are the same Pooh print as the backing. I found them in a box of scraps at a quilt show.
Most quilt shows have boxes of scraps for sale. All the scraps one can stuff in a plastic baggie for a few dollars. I enjoy searching those boxes for treasure! Bits of novelty prints. Discarded strips of fabric.
This little quilt was quilted with horizontal wavy lines using my machine's walking foot. It finished at 36" x 42". The binding is yellow print with teeny tiny butterflies that kinda look like tiny bees. Any hoo. This quilt went together easily, was fun, fast, and is ready to donate at the next guild meeting.
