RSC15 Sampler - Purples

Yep, the purples needed to be finished last month ..... alas, here are the star blocks.  I also have the 24 individual squares cut and set aside for the finishing steps. Sometimes I take a different route for the 6" center sampler block, which is what I did with one block here.


My green star blocks are also in progress. I hope to have them ready to share next week. All my sampler blocks are being collected on their own page  HERE .

In the meantime, I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrappy  where you'll see what else is being made from quilters' scrap bins.

Thanks to Angela for employing the easy angle and companion angle rulers in the instructions.  I really enjoy using them.  If not for this project,  I know they would have stayed on the shelf .

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.

Pink & Purple Drunkard Path

One month last year, our bucket skill challenge was curved piecing.  I set about making drunkard path blocks for the first time.   Hmmmm,  not so difficult really........just slower going.  I chose a print for the DP blocks, then pulled yardage to compliment the print.

Actually, I set up this design in EQ first, just to see where I was going!  EQ helped me with the special sized templates for the DP block units and the borders too..... and it helped me plan the special pieced backing!  This quilt is made from 6" blocks and finishes at  64 x 72.




and here is the back ..................................................



I'm joining these linky parties where you'll discover more quilters and their wonderful projects.

CCQ's 18, 19 & 20

I still aim for 2 charity comfort quilts a month - most of them are baby and toddler size.  This month I thought I'd take the quick 'n easy route. ... the   Supersize 9-Patch  designed by Anita Grossman Soloman .... .

So, putting the tops together was super quick ----  the quilting took longer as I had fun with different designs with the walking foot.  These are all backed with comfy fleece, washed, and ready for gifting.



You can see all my comfort quilts on the  CCQ  page.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
