2017 RSC March Week 1, RSC Row Quilt Finish, RSC Wonky Star Finish, Baby Quilt


It's been a month since I posted. Today I have two RSC quilt finishes to write about today! My RSC Column Quilt Along columns became a Row Quilt during construction. I added rows of 2.5" squares at the top and bottom to pull it all together. It's quilted with a free motion meander and bound with a green strip print. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished as 56" x 76". Thank you, Angela for hosting the column/row quilt challenge. This was fun.


I also finished my RSC Wonky Star Quilt. I like this quilt! It's quilted with a free motion meander and after a go in the washer and dryer it finished as 57" x 71".


I finished up some RSC scrappy turquoise fun before playing with my red scraps. Two scrappy turquoise pot holders, a crayon block and a doll quilt finish up my February RSC month.
It was fun pulling out my red scraps for March. Three red 16 patch blocks, two red 36 patch blocks and a red crayon block are pictured.
I have a box of orphan blocks. This week I pulled several half square triangles, a 9 patch, some 4 patch blocks, and some flying geese to made two colorful pot holders. One can never have too many pot holders on hand for gifts. To see what other made with their RSC scraps go here.


My good buddy from NY sent me a few fabric book panels last month. I decided to cut one panel into blocks and make a charity baby quilt instead of a fabric book. It finished at 39" square. Isn't it cute. I turned it in at the last quilt meeting.

Two great RSC finishes. Turning the strips into a row quilt was a lovely idea and the rainbow strips just finish it off so nicely. The stars are so pretty when seen together, a,very sweet quilt. How are,you doing,all,that red so fast? I just finished pulling mine. But,I did just,finish the binding on my Farm,Boy quilt and it turned out very well. Now I can work on red. Have a fun week!

Love all your projects! The column quilt turned into rows looks wonderful, especially with the sashing and 2.5 inch squares at the top and bottom. Your potholders ar a great idea, too. I made some for my mom for Christmas, and had planned to make more for our house, but haven't gone back to them yet!

Angie said...

Congrats on all the finishes. The RSC quilts are so bright and fun. The baby book quilt turned out so cute. You've been making a lot of progress. Happy stitching this weekend.

I love love love the wonky star quilt! It really does sparkle! Your row quilt is nice too! The teddy bear story quilt is adorable! That was a very clever use of a book panel. I'll have to remember that because sometimes you can find book panels for a great price! I love how you added the colorful square border on it. Beautiful potholders too. I'm excited about your rainbow scrap challenge crayons!! Hooray for getting so much done in a month!!
