Over 60's - Green -OMG

The Over 60's embroidered blocks is one of my monthly projects for the RSC17 at Soscrappy.  This month's color is green.  This weekend I pushed myself to get the block cut and assembled and ready for hand embroidery.  There is alot of pieces in this block.  That's how it came by the name "Over 60's" as there is that many half square triangles in this block.



I am joining up with Pat of Elm Street Quilts for the OMG-One Monthly Goal challenge for May.  My goal is to get the embroidery design stitched in the center.  Linking up here:

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.

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.
