2016 RSC February Brown and Pink Week 2, Charity Toddler Quilt Finish
This week I added another brown and pink super scrappy pot holder to my collection. A scrappy brown boxy star block made it into the picture. To see what others made with brown and pink scraps, go here.
It's time to think about Hands 2 Help comfort and charity quilts. Each month I'm sewing guy themed scrappy 16 patch blocks for a guy themed charity quilt. I'll add these sixteen blocks to the eight blocks I made last month. I cut 2.5" squares from scraps and trimmings and store them in a plastic tub. Lot of scrappy blocks and quilts have come from that scrap management system.
My blogging buddy, Sharon, sent me a Dick, Jane, Sally panel. It appeared to be two four page chapters. I cut the eight pages from the panel, sashed the four pages of the "Sally" chapter in green and pieced them on the front of this charity toddler/baby size quilt. The other strips were 4" wide.
I sashed the four pages of the "Look" chapter and pieced them into the backing. This easy and fun strip quilt was quilted with a large loose free motion meander and bound with a white polka dots on black cotton print. It finished at about 40" x 46". I'll turn it in during my quilt guild's February meeting. Thank you, dear Sharon.
When I went to school, I learned to read using Dick, Jane, Sally and Spot reading books. My goodness. That was a long time ago : )
