2018 RSC January Light Blue, RSC 16-Patch Quilt Finish, Captain America Panel Quilts, Charity Baby Quilt, Scrappy Pot Holders,


My stack of  colorful RSC 16-patch blocks made last year and the year before are now a colorful RSC quilt. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 63" x 85".


I bought a couple Captain America Panels for two Great-grandsons. An addition red border border made them a little larger. They were quilted with a large free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer they finished about 40" x 45". They were Christmas gifts.


I sashed nine colorful blocks from my UFO box to make a donation baby quilt that I'll turn in next week during our January guild meeting. It finished at 37.5" x 37.5".


A plastic tub of very small scraps is my source of super scrappy pot holders. I make them throughout the year and gift them mainly at Christmas. All I make last year were given away. Pictured are my first six of 2018. Only one scrappy blue potholder. A very slow RSC start. Looks like a busy scrappy light blue week in my future.

You've inspired me to make some more 16-patch blocks this year. I've been cutting my scraps into squares, so I have no excuse not to Thaanks a lot.

P.S. I just noticed your block quilt with the central squares. What size are the squares and strips, please. So colorful and easy. That suits me fine.

Most people would not call that a slow start. So many happy colors. The potholders will be so handy.

Great post as usual. I would not live without travelling. Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.
Travel early and travel often. Live abroad, if you can. Understand cultures other than your own. As your understanding of other cultures increases, your understanding of yourself and your own culture will increase exponentially.
Did you know that you can print favorite photos of your work and hang them on the wall as canvas prints? Bring your ideas into real life, with an option to print even small photo canvas

Sheila I do love how you combine your work through the years into those RSC quilts! They are always so pretty, but I really, really like this sixteen patch! Just gorgeous.

Kate said...

The 16 patch quilt turned out beautifully! Love all that scrappy color. The Captain American quilts are very fun. You've did well for December and January. Hope you've had some time to get in some good stitching this week.

Your rainbow sixteen patch is wonderful. It's a good reminder to have a full range of values in each block to make them sparkle.
