2019 RSC December Eye of God Quilt Finish, 49-Patch Quilt Finish, 16-Patch Quilt Finish, Doll Quilts
Lots of sewing happening since my last post. Been pulling RSC colorful blocks from my "construction box". It's a plastic tub I fill during the year with each month's blocks. The quilt pictured above was made with 16-Patch blocks. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 59"x 73". It went to a niece.
The quilt pictured above was made with 49-patch blocks. After a go in the washer and dryer it finished at 57" 80". It went to another niece.
This Eye of God block quilt was made from blocks made this year and last year. It went to yet another niece. Good year for some of my nieces. Not pictured is a second Eye of God block quilt that went to a granddaughter. I gave it to her before I remembered to take a picture. All the blocks for granddaughter's quilt were made this year and was much like the one pictured above. Both quilts finished at about 53.5" x 69".
I make RSC house blocks every year and have for years. Usually I use Bonnie Hunter's Happy House Block pattern found on her Quiltville blog under the free pattern tab. Pictured are two donation doll quilts made with eight blocks pulled from the construction box.
There's more in the construction box. Sprout blocks, house blocks, 64-patch blocks, 16-patch blocks, string blocks and plastic sandwich bags of colorful squares and rectangles sit ready to be turned into more RSC blocks and quilts during next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.
