2017 RSC July Blue Week 3 Blocks and Green String Quilt Finish


I love this Rainbow Scrap Challenge and I LOVE the month we play with blue. Pictured are three scrappy 16-patch blue blocks, seven blue string blocks, two 36-patch blocks, a blue crayon block, a donation doll quilt and seven supper scrappy pot holders. To see what others made this month go here Saturday morning.
I've started a colorful string block quilt with dark purple centers. Twenty four blocks made it into the picture. String blocks are fun to make. Mindless sewing.


I finished a scrappy string block quilt with dark green centers. I used 7.5" squares cut from phone book pages for their foundation.


Here is a picture of the backing. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 55" x 75". I love this quilt.

I am liking everything you've done this time. Green string quilt is a winner and the patchwork in glorious color, too. I think I may need to make some of those crayon blocks. Is there a pattern? I am thinking that might be a good one for the USO Lounge.

You've got some beautiful blues going there sheila--and the green string (I love string quilts) is so pretty nice work hugs, Julierose

I'm going to have to look into making a string quilt. Where do you donate doll quilts?

Isn't it AMAZING how different String quilts turn out depending what color you add to the center of the blocks? Like you, I live this one, too. Congrats on your new quilt!!

You have done really well with blue so far, all very rich and cool. The string quilt turned out very well. I like the green sashing very much. Congrats on that finish.

What a fabulous collection of blocks and finished pot holders you made from blue scraps. Your String Quilt is wonderful! Love those dark centres, really make the other strings zing.
