2016 RSC October Yellow and Orange Week 4, RSC Boxy Stars Quilt Finished
It's that time of year when we turn our RSC blocks into quilts. After making my yellow Boxy Star block, I needed two more blocks to have 12 blocks for a 3 x 4 block layout. After making two colorful, scrappy blocks, it was time to put my quilt together.
The backing is pieced from stash. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and bound with a colorful print. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 49" x 63". Boxy Stars is a Bonnie Hunter pattern found here. I think I'll do this pattern again and make all the blocks colorful and scrappy.
This picture shows progress on my RSC Column Quilt. I sewed 1.5" white strips between each 55" column. Now it looks like a row quilt because it is 55" by about 70". No problem for me. I think I'll add a narrow white border and an outer border of green, blue, yellow or orange. Maybe I'l finish it this week. To see what others made with their scraps this week, go here.
