2017 RSC Week 5 All Colors, Dancing Nines Quilt Finish, Doll Quilt Finish


I have enjoyed this RSC month. Pictured is a pot holder made with 1.5" HSTs taken from the orphan block box. Also a donation doll quilt made from 2.5" HSTs from that same orphan block box. I've made a dent in the orphan box this month. Also pictured are six colorful 16 patch blocks to add to my RSC collection.
To see what others made with their colorful scraps, go here Saturday morning.


Happily I've finished another UFO started last year! It's a Dancing Nines Quilt using a Bonnie Hunter pattern from her website under the Free Patterns tab. I used 2.5" squares from my tub of 2.5" squares cut from scraps. Sashing is 2" wide. I omitted the piano keyboard boarder. It's quilted with a large free motion meander and finished at 49" x 65". I'll donate it during our guild's May meeting. Many novelty prints in this fun quilt. Perfect finish for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

The Dancing Nine Patches may be my favorite Bonnie Hunter pattern, though it's really hard to pick just one. Yours is perfect, and yes, the fun fabrics in the nines really make it fun. Love seeing all your prolific sewing!
