2019 RSC July Pink, 2"x3.5" Piece RSC Quilt Finish, Growing Up Odd Quilt Finish


The RSC color this month is PINK. I like pink. Needing to start turning RSC accumulating blocks, into something, I pulled my blocks made with 2"x 3.5" pieces, make six  blocks with purple to make this RSC throw quilt that I call Sew Scrappy Rainbow. It's quilted with a meander and finished at about 54"x 72".



I also pulled my Growing Up Odd RSC blocks, make some additional blocks with other colors to finish this quilt I call Whimsically Growing Up Odd. It's quilted with a free motion meander and finished at about 64" x 82". The free pattern tutorial for this block is at weddingdressblue.wordpress.com.
To see other RSC projects go to superscrappy.blogspot.com

The last three quilts I have made are wavy, not flat and don't hang nicely. Though I did a lot of pressing and measuring during construction, flat quilt tops didn't happen. Sewing and quilting tips would be appreciated. Question. Can a professional quilter with a quilting machine turn a quilt that doesn't lay flat into a flat quilt?

I like how you're using all your little scraps especially the Whimsically Growing up odd. Nice layoout.

LOVE your version of the Growing Up Odd in RSC style. I quilted one that was just all scraps. The controlled version gives it a very unique look. Have a great weekend.

i really love your Growing Up Odd! great job! I made one, too, for RSC18, but i used different colors in each of the blcoks, and mixed it up a bit... great job on the finishes!

Both of those quilts turned out AMAZING!!! I'd have a tough time choosing a favorite.

Both lovely quilts, well done.

Quilter Kathy said...

Love the finishes! You can make the quilt flat by blocking it.
I do this by laying it flat on the floor/carpet and laying damp towels on top of the wavy part of the quilt and leaving it to dry.
Once the towels dry, the quilt underneath is magically flatter.
Some people block their quilt when it's wet and pin it to the carpet.

You are amazingly prolific with your RSC quilts. So wonderful and each one different. Hooray for you!

Love the quilts. Have me some great ideas for scraps. Not that I need to start any more quilts.

Both of your quilts are wonderful! I really love the Sew Scrappy Rainbow - that's a lot of little pieces!

I have no recommendations on flatter quilts, but I will tell you they are all fantastic.

Your quilts are beautiful. I love how you make all those different blocks each month and put them together so perfectly!
I have had a lot of quilts with wavy issues. Usually, I can make them behave when I quilt them. I thunk a lot of the time the problem is fabrics with different stretch to them

Elaine/Muddling Through said...

Think, not thunk! LOL

I love your quilts... I don't notice any wobbles. Your recipients won't notice either. I can't help you with that concern. When I notice that in my own quilts (often) I just realize I'm an amateur and hobbiest. Nobody has given their quilt back to me. I'm sure your quilts are loved, just as they are.
Hugs

Why are everyone looking for ways online to get help solving their pregnancy and infertility problems when most of every native American is talking online about the help of Dr Mandaker Alamun. I checked him out when my husband who could not get me pregnant for over 9 years of marriage as a result of low sperm count became fertile and now, I am 5 months pregnant and it is this man known as Dr Mandaker who helped my husband solve his problem. My name is Alecia Maldonado from CA USA. I would advise anyone and everyone who needs the help of any spell caster in love marriage,finance, job promotion,lottery spell,poker spell,golf spell,Law & Court case Spells,money spell,weigh loss spell,diabetic spell,hypertensive spell,high cholesterol spell,Trouble in marriage,Barrenness(need spiritual marriage separation),good Luck, Money Spells,he also heal HIV and AID and Autistic and it's all he does or looking for breakthrough in your political career to meet this Dr Mandaker the link to his website copy this link (witch-doctor.page4.me)His email contact witchhealing@outlook.com for He is a Reliable and trustworthy. I and my husband have gone to different hospitals having the thinking that I was at fault for not getting pregnant. But at the Federal hospital, they examined him too and his sperm count was low and unable to get a woman pregnant as a result of male infertility. It was then I sort out,thanks to Dr Mandaker.

You have 2 lovely scrappy finishes! Great job. Sorry, no help on the wavy but sounds like Kathy's idea might be something to try.

Sue SA said...

I was told once that my quilt hung wavy because I stretched the binding too tight when I was sewing it on. They suggested I pull it off and re do it, but I have never bothered! I have noticed that some quilts are wavey after I quilted them, especially if the amount of quilting was not even across the quilt.

Karen H said...

The quilts are absolutely gorgeous! I have said this before, but I need to get busy using up my scraps. Great finishes!
