RSC16 - August

I have none of the color for this month, some shade of purple.  But I knew all along the last 3 colors I would need to use, light green, red and yellow.  I predict that Angela will still call these last two colors, so I did light green this month.

Again, I have piled it all together on my design wall without the energy to bring out the previous months' parts for a proper group photo.

I did the bear paw block, the sampler row, my modified indian hatchet row, crayon row, 8 scrappy churn dash blocks and 5 over-sized crumb block tops.  All this came out of the scrap bin!  Evidently, if I didn't do this challenge every month, I would need LOTS more bins.

These crumb blocks will be the beginning practice foundations for my journey into FMQ.  They will become hot pads.  I have practice sandwiches all lined up to begin FMQ ............................... TODAY.  Yes, I am nervous.  I must remember to have fun with it and do not judge.  I hope it is a positive experience and I can grow in my quilting.



I am linking up with Angela at Soscrappy.  Be sure to visit there to see what everyone else is making with their  light greens    purples.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

D9P - Baby

The baby big blocks project for this month is Disappearing 9 Patch .  This sweet little bundle begins with only four,  9-patch blocks.  Chop them down the middle and toss them in different directions to get this adorable 35 inch finished baby quilt.





I am sharing basic instructions for this little quilt.  You can download the PDF file here.  This is a great design for using up leftover fabric squares from other projects.

D9P Baby by Kat Scribner on Scribd




I made up 2 kits for the quilt club to sew.  With 20 blocks leftover (make 5- 9/patch blocks, I put my rendition together a bit differently.  I think it looks .................  modern.  It measures 36 x 45.





Thanks so much for stopping by.
