Ebenezer Donation Quilt, Great-Grandchild Quilt, Two Large Media Themed Totes, Two Super Hero Bibs, Three Doll Quilts

My Quilt Guild had a community service sewing day to make baby quilts and youth quilts for our local Ebenezer Christian Family Center. I worked on this quilt while there, finished it at home and donated during our quilt's October meeting.

Great-grandchild number four is due soon. I made this DC Super Hero quilt from a panel for him. Such an exciting time for our family.

I made six baby bibs for great-grandchildren. Here are two of them.

A few years ago I bought "The Everything Bag" tote bag pattern by Fons & Porter's. It makes a large tote bag. I'm not sure how many totes I have made using this pattern, but people that receive them seem to like them. I have one and use it a lot because it can easily carry a few items or several items. These were given to two grandsons with quilts in them. I call them media themed totes because the fabric strips were cut from licensed fabrics like Marvel, Disney, etc.

This is a charity baby quilt that I'll donate during our November Quilt Guild meeting. It measured about 41" square after a go in the washer and dryer.

Doll quilts are fun to sew. I gave two of these away, The third will be donated.

2018 RSC August Orange, RSC Fun With Crayons Quilt Finish

A finish this week! I'm calling it "Fun With Crayons." I made the scrappy 5" wide string crayons last year. Here they are sashed with 2" Kona White strips. I added 5" string blocks on the left. The block patterns for the five 12.5" blocks on the right are from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. The inner yellow border was 1.5" wide strips. The turquoise outer border was 5" wide. The binding is pieced with 10" strips in rainbow color order. It's quilted with a loose free motion meander and finished at 68" x 84".

2018 RSC July Red Week 4

Red is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge July color. I love red. Pictured are five 16-patch blocks, four string blocks, a happy house block, a 36-patch block and a RSC sampler block. To see what others made with red fabric, go here Saturday morning.

Last month Mother had an autonomic stroke. She had several strokes in the past, but this one was worse than the others. Hospice was called and Mother passed last week. Hospice was wonderful. They took good care of Mother and us.
Mother loved God. She loved everyone. She was at a point in her life that most of her friends and all her family, parents and 12 siblings, had passed. I imagine that she is in heaven, smiling, laughing and happy to see them again. I'll miss her.

2018 RSC June Turquoise, Turquoise String Block Quilt Finish

When my mind is busy with family issues, sewing strips of fabric on pages of phone book paper is the ticket. I'm happy to have finished a Turquoise String Block Quilt this month. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at about 55" x 75".

Each of the foundation phone book pages are cut to 7.75" x 7.75".

A couple weeks work here... Pictured are five 16 patch blocks, a thirty-six patch block, a happy house block, a 2018 RSC sampler block and a small scrappy pot holder made form two orphan blocks.  WOW. I just saw the mistake in the sampler block. I'll have to fix that!

I pulled some string blocks made last year during the RSC to make this pink themed Eye of God block quilt. The backing is bright pink.  After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 65" x 83". I'll put this one on Mother's bed.
My goodness! What is up with blogger and Google. I see that I have comments on my last post that didn't go to by email. Sure hope they fix that ........

2018 RSC May Pink Week 4 String Baby Quilt

I love sewing string blocks in each month's rainbow colors. This week I pulled and sashed 16 of them for a charity baby quilt that finished at about 39" square. I'll donate it during our June quilt guild meeting.

My third Growing Up Odd block is pictured above as well as two 2018 sampler blocks. Made a couple super scrappy pot holders this week. The HSTs were from my orphan box collection. Not making it into the picture was a pretty pink themed doll quilt and a two sided large flannel receiving blanket. Both were donated before I thought to take a picture.

2018 RSC May Pink Week 3

Still catching up for those lost RSC weeks. Yes. I'm making more colorful RSC Bonnie Hunter house blocks. I'm addicted. May turn them into another quilt, some pot holders, mug rugs. Don't know. I just like to make these blocks. Thought I'd try out the RSC 2018 Sampler Blocks. Aren't they cute. And fun, too.
I decided to make another "Growing Up Odd" block. That makes, two blocks. I chose a light pink fabric for sashing.  These blocks are fun to make. Another super scrappy pot holder made it into the picture.
To see what other made with their colorful fabrics, go here Saturday morning.

2018 May Pink and Rose, Week 1, 16-Patch Blocks, 36-Patch blocks, Doll Quilts

I've some Rainbow Scrap Challenge catching up to do in the coming months. Because 16-patch blocks are so much fun to sew and versatile, I decided to make more this RSC year. My plan is to make five in each month's RSC year. Apparently I forgot to count this year. Two light blue blocks and six purple blocks. Don't know what is going on here.

I love 36-patch blocks, too. I'll try at least one each RSC month.
To see what others made with their scraps, go here Saturday morning.

I'm still sewing up scraps and orphan blocks to make doll quilts to give away. Love sewing doll quilts.

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.
