2016 RSC Aqua Turquoise Weeks 1-4, Laura Burch Cat Quilt and Media String Quilt Finishes
It's been a busy month. Though I like to post at least once a week, this month I'll only do one. Pictured is a doll quilt, a pot holder, two 36-patch blocks, a wonky star block, and a boxy square block in RSC aqua/turquoise.
Four QOV blocks and two pot holders in tan and pink print squares made it into the picture. They will be turned in during this month's quilt guild meeting this week.
To see what others made with their aqua/turquoise fabrics go here.
My plans are to do more RSC sewing this week as I didn't sew my aqua/turquoise RSC column, Another doll quilt, pot holder and a couple mug rugs are on my sewing "to do" list this week.
This small quilt has been in the works for a few years. It's made with Laura Burch fabrics. The 12 cats were cut from a panel. Narrow strips of colorful fabric are around each cat. Finally the blocks are sashed with 2.5" strips. This quilt has not been in the washer and dryer. It finished at 38.5"x 54". Will be a gift.
This is a close up of string quilt that has been planned for a few years. Lots of movie and cartoon novelty prints here.
Above is a picture of the finished quilt. 1.5" string were sewed onto 7.75" pieces of phone book paper with a 2.0" string of Kona white in the centers of each square. The setting is 7x10 squares with a 4.5" blue border and green binding. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander with loop-de-loops here and there. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 55"x 76.5". This quilt shrunk big time while in the washer and dryer. Though I love this quilt, it will be a gift.
