RSC16 week 18


At the end of four months I have finally caught up with my blocks of the month and have begun the finishing of a WIP row quilt.
This is my April twinkler and I can finally say that I made it with only one ripping and recutting.  I don’t dare think I can do one without any problems, but I’m getting closer.  Here are the four.

The other final block I completed was the April slab block, which was far more fun than doing the star.  Do I prefer the easy way out?

And here are my four slab blocks.
The 16-patch blocks turned out to be fun, even though the February one became orange instead of pink with brown, and so it is now officially the April block.

I mentioned that I keep an ongoing list of my projects.  When I finish one I reward myself with a little happy face emoticon at each stage.  For the RSC blocks I use little sailboats, squares, stars, etc.  For the final completion I give myself a lovely pink flower.  Guess I’m in my second childhood a bit these days!

That is only half of my list, but it really works for me.  My next WIP started with a random drawing of  90 HSTs  from Summer at Easy Quilter.  I turned them into a lot of pinwheels and have worked them into rows.  I have started piecing the rows together and it should not take long to finish, I hope.
As you see, I will still be working with orange, but I stowed away every bit of brown I could find, at last!
We can all enjoy new colors, Hooray!  Have a great week.

  1. You're much more organized than I am with your list – I love it! Reminds me of the gold stars we used to get in grade school for a job well done. 8)
    Your twinklers are worth the effort – they make the most lovely blocks!


  2. Your twinkler stars are so pretty in the RSC colors! They are going to make a beautiful quilt! The slab blocks are such a great idea, too. Since I sorted my scraps into color tubs, I'm thinking I should be making some of those myself!
