The last RSC week of playing with green scraps and I'll add two 7"x 10" batik mug rugs, a super scrappy hot pad, a green and blue 16-patch block and a green and blue 36-patch block to my collections. Looking forward to a new color. Can't believe it is almost JUNE! Where did the time go. To see what other made with their green scraps go here Saturday morning.
There is a picture showing progress made on my media themed string quilt. Only 19 string blocks left to make before I start sewing all my blocks together and adding a border. I would like to have this TVquilt finished in two or three weeks.

This week I worked on a green RSC column of flying geese. All my other column blocks were loose so I sewed them together. I wanted to audition my colorful RSC columns. So far, looking good! To see what others made with their green prints, go here.
A grandson requested a string block quilt. Since his birthday is in August, I thought I'd start making blocks for a media themed quilt. I'm sewing colorful 1.5" strips of fabric on 7 3/4" square pieces of paper torn from a phone book. The centers are 2" strips of Kona White fabric. I using a lot of super hero, movie, cartoon and tv themed prints.

Another week playing with green and I'll add a doll quilt, a wonky star and a Boxy Star block to my collections. Four string QOV blocks made it into the picture. A few teeny tiny zipper purses were out the door before I thought to take a picture. I'll start making more for my Christmas gift collection. I'm working on a couple quilts I hope to have ready for pictures soon. To see what others made with their "greens" this week go here.

I Love Green. Especially after a long winter time when trees have lost all their pretty green leaves. This week I pieced four 16-patch blocks, one 36-patch blocks and a super scrappy pot holder to add to my collections. To see what others made with their green scraps go here.
When one wants to make a fast and easy quilt, nothing works better than a panel. My sewing buddy, Laura, gave me a couple baby panels to turn into baby quilts earlier this year. The backing for this panel is a soft lemon yellow cotton. It's quilted with a large free motion meander and bound with a colorful striped print. It finished at 34.5" x 42". I'll take this little quilt to this month's annual guild meeting.
Little doll quilts are such fun to sew. Addictive! This little quilt finished at 21" square. I'll donate it later this year.
