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.

It does sound like a busy month. Those white center strips are a great contrast to the bright and happy fabrics. I'm sure the new owner will love it.

Your Laurel Burch Quilt turned out GREAT!! It's so bright and cheerful (as is the Character String quilt.) You made some wonderful scrappy progress!!

Your turquoise is so lively! I love it...especially combine with orange. And I'm glad to see your over-achieving doll quilts are back.

Your LB quilt is a real winner because of the extra strip framing in the bright colors. Congrats on that and the string quilt finishes. A very productive month for you!

What great finishes! The recipients are going to love their quilts. As usual you've accomplished a lot this month. Summer seems to slow most of us down, one way or another.

What a happy bunch of projects you've completed! Each one is so pretty! I like that string quilt, too. I've made several and want to make more. They are comforting, somehow.
