RSC17 - Blues

I pulled blues from the scrappy bins, a different one for each block.  I  finally stopped at 22.  I did get tired of making this block before I was finished with this batch.  This could be why the RSC challenges work for me,   only a few blocks at a time, not the entire project at once.



I also made blue crayons for a child quilt ..............



I met my piecing goals for this month  I'm happy to get back to machine quilting.  Today I'm linking up with the creator of the RSC challenge ...........  Angela at Soscrappy.   Be sure to visit there to see what other quilters are creating with their scraps.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

A Cotton Candy finish

This pretty child quilt is the result of a jelly roll strip tease challenge on Stashbusters yahoo group.  Actually I made 4 tops in June because of this challenge.  I saw a quilt like this one on Sue Dario's blog.  She does fabulous work.  I made up my own version here.

I'm calling it Cotton Candy.  It finished at 42 x 49.  There is a pretty fleece print on the back.  I quilted it with westalee rulers;  Circles on Quilts ruler for the baptist fan,  heart border template on the border and some improv play on the final 2 inch border.  Having so much fun with the westalee rulers, I am hooked.


I think I'm stashing this one for a family or friend need... no label until I know where it's going.  I'm happy to share this finish with ......................

RSC17 - Yellow

Just a quick post to share my yellow blocks for June.  Not too exciting this month.  I'm spending more time on machine quilting  and piecing takes a back-seat.




I'm sharing with Angela of Soscrappy today.  Be sure to visit there to see what other quilters are working on.
