2016 RSC March Purple and Yellow Week 3, Charity Baby Quilt


This was a good week with lots of fun playing with purple and yellow. I'll add these three 7" x 10" scrappy batik mug rugs to my collection of future gifts, donations. Mug rugs are fun to sew. I think they look like miniature quilts.


I'll also add these four Bonnie Hunter Happy Scrappy Houses to my collection. I need 42 house blocks to make a quilt. To see what others made with their purple and yellow, go here.


This happy, easy charity baby quilt was made using 16 WOF 2.5" strips to make sixteen 8.5" strip blocks. It has a 4" light border.


The backing is a pretty tone on tone blue print. The 6" coin strip sewed into the backing. The strip was pieced using scraps from the 16 WOF strips used in the quilt top. I pulled four 2.5" x 6" pieces from scraps to make the coin strip long enough to fill the width of the backing. When I'm unsure of a binding color, I often pull something red or purple. Red seemed to tie this little quilt together. Everything came from stash. It's quilted with a very loose free motion meander and finished at 39" square. I'll turn it in during our monthly quilt guild meeting Tuesday.


These four patriotic R/W/B 8.5" blocks will be donated Tuesday. One of our guild committees turns donated patriotic blocks into Home Town Hero Quilts.

All of your projects this week are so colorful. I can't decide which I like best. Probably between the mug rugs and the baby quilt. A very productive week, congrats.

Oh no! I've resisted minion fabric up until now. But a house full on minions is too good to be true.

How cute are those happy houses. Your little Minions and critters sure add zest to the houses. Love it.
