RSC16 for June

I spent the last few days catching up with my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects.  I'll just showcase all of them together.  The color was aqua this month,  I have so little of aqua, so I concentrated on light blue with a bit of aqua.

I'll begin with my favorite project ..............  my 'modified' indian hatchet block.  The rows are 14 - 6" blocks long. The design board isn't large enough to show it all, but you get the idea .......



Next up is the scrappy bear paw blocks,..........


with a close-up of June's block..................



and the crayon project .......................




lastly here is my RSC16 Sampler in progress .............................



the EQ mock-up, this may help me visualize row placements.............




4 more colors will complete my sets.  Then it will be time to plan borders and finishes.  Two of these quilts are planned for queen size,  the crayon quilt will be a large child size.  I haven't yet decided about the bear paw, but planning a very special layout.

It's amazing how many quilts keep coming out of those scrap bins!!  I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy.

and on Sunday, linking with Cynthia for Oh Scrap.

  Hop on over there to see what everyone else is making from their scrap bins.

A special  "THank You"  to our Fathers this weekend.    Thanks so much for stopping by!

Shamrock's

This little finish is a UFO from a couple years ago. I did the hand embroidery then it hung on the back of a door, waiting for borders.   I gave up the idea of  a fancy pieced border when I stumbled on a leftover piece of this irish print.



Be sure to visit these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing too.

RSC16 - Green Sampler Row

I followed Angela's direction for using the easy angle and companion angle rulers for my geese.  I've never had much consistent success with making flying geese.  I'm pretty sure I've tried all the methods and specialty rulers.  These rulers worked very well for me this time.  I made 27 geese and only one lost it's point.




Here is an EQ simulation of the quilt sampler in progress:



I seem to be working toward bed size quilts this year.  I'm not sure the busi-ness of these rows together is working for me.  I may have to insert some separator strips. Then again, I could change my mind before the year is out.  

I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy.  Visit there to see what everyone else is creating with their green fabrics.  I wonder what the color will be for June?????   

Thanks so much for stopping by.
