RSC17 - Reds for March

I spent March getting quilting ready for April's quilt show, which left me no time to work the red scraps.  Since April was mixed prints month, I found it a great time to catch up / cut up   the reds.  I still have a few churn dash blocks to make; otherwise my RSC projects are now red-ready.

Here are  12 (20 triangles blocks).  I don't know,  does this block have an official name????  Also a red crayon for the child's crayon quilt.

Finally,  this is my first row for the row quilt swap project with the guild.  Lots of red scraps cut up here...  Lots of pieces, but I used the go cutter this time, and it fit together very well.

I'm linking up with Angela at Soscrappy for the RSC17 challenge today  and linking up with Cynthia for Oh Scrap on Sunday.

Be sure to visit these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

Over 60's Aqua - OMG finished

My OMG (one monthly goal) for April was to hand embroider the center flower design on this aqua 'over 60's'  block.  I wrote about it  here

and joined up for the OMG for April  here

This is my evening stitching, daytime is devoted to machine work.  I embroidered thru all 3 layers which serves as part of the quilting too.

I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the One Monthly Goal link-up party here:

Since this is a block for one of my RSC17 projects, I am also linking up Saturday with Soscrappy.

Be sure to visit both of these sites to see what other creative quilters are working on.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

My Neighbor's Garden

I can finally share what I've been working on the past month.  I have kept it under wraps because it was intended for a quilt club challenge for the quilt show, which took place this past weekend.  The challenge was to create a quilt, any size, depicting your vision of 'spring'.

I worked on my vision, one row at a time.  As I finished a row, I let it tell me what it wanted next.  I was thrilled with how it evolved.  It finished at 60 x 70, and most special was that it won  the 1st Place ribbon and a very generous gift basket at the show.  This show is a small, local show.  It is not professionally judged, but is based on viewer's choice voting.

I hate to boast, but I'm so tickled with my first ribbon that I am sharing my joy with these lovely sites this week.  Be sure to visit them each day to see what others are sharing too.

Wednesday  -  Sew Fresh Quilts
                    -  Quilt Fabrication
Thursday  -  My Quilt Infatuation

Have a wonderful week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Over 60's - Aqua

This 18 inch block was prepared back in February for the RSC17 monthly challenge.  As I have been knee-deep in hand stitching bindings on very large quilts,  the hand embroidery on this Over 60's block has been formenting on the hanger.

So, my OMG - One Monthly Goal for April will be hand embroidering the center design.  I have been stitching through all 3 layers to become part of the quilting too.

I am linking up with   Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal April Linkup  for my April monthly challenge.  

Be sure to visit Elm Street Quilts to see what other quilters are working on this month.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
