I got my pink RSC blocks for February made today 🙂 Using the Studio cutter for the triangles sure is nice. There are 16 half square triangles in each broken dish block and it takes like 5 minutes to cut 64 triangles…….and it is fun!!! Linking up SoScrappy for the Saturday Rainbow Scrap Challenge Saturday post.
The Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 color for January is blue, not dark blue, not light blue, just “regular middle of the road blue”. Since I have a new toy, my Studio cutter, I’m using my triangle die and thrifted shirt scraps to make broken dishes blocks this year 🙂 I’m linking to the Scrap Happy Saturday post so check out the scrappy goodness going on.
So this time the brown log cabin quilt is totally finished, binding, label and all 🙂 Oh, and it’s had a name change to “Cabin in the Woods” per popular opinion of those present at label writing time.
The only thing new to my design wall is November’s main First Sat block. Hop over to Judy’s DWM post and see lot’s of quilty action.
Here’s a pic of the solids from my stash that have gone into the box heading to my daughter in Turkey. She asked could I send her some solids….how about 6.5 yards of them???? Can you say “stash out”?
But a bit of thrifted fabric made it’s way in 🙂 They are really great additions…neutral, plaid, red & orange 😉
- Fabric in: 4 yards (thrifted shirts)
- Fabric out: 6.5 yards
- YTD Fabric in: 125.5 yards
- YTD Fabric out: 77 yards
- Net Fabric In/(Out): 48.5 yards
Happy Quilting, Cherie
The brown/white thrifted shirt log cabin quilt, Going Up, is almost finished. Woo hoo!! Just hand sewing the binding and a label remain to be done. So this is my design wall for DWM 🙂 Some more pictures, including the backing, which used shirt backs. You’ll see Harley, our dog, approves 🙂
Now for the new addition……to my sewing machine family!! A guild member said she was looking to give her Elna sewing machine to a good home. Was I interested? Why, but of course I was! Please meet Super Glenda, an Elna Supermatic with her metal carrying case folded out to a platform that is flush with the bed of the lean, green, Swiss machine 🙂 Thank you, Glenda for this wonderful addition to my sewing family. I love her already.
Here’s the tag that was included along with a booklet.
- Fabric in: 0 yards
- Fabric out: 0 yards
- YTD Fabric in: 121.5yards
- YTD Fabric out: 70.5 yards
- Net Fabric In/(Out): 51 yards
Happy Quilting, Cherie
The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for November is light blue. For the first time in many months, I’m actually sewing with the month’s color 😉 The light blue bar blocks are finished! Check out the RSC link up here.
I had a huge bag of collars, cuffs and plackets from deboning thrifted shirts. I just finished ironing, trimming and sorting them into the string boxes and so the light blue strings were almost all shirt plaids and stripes. I’ve got the scrap string base for the wonky churn dash together too.
