RSC17 week 43


It’s been a nice month for pink, but I’m looking forward to finishing some of this year’s WIPs.  Here is my final  pink block, a Churn Dash to pair up with my Folded Box blocks, as an RSC18 project.
Speaking of finishes, I was surprised to see my Tossed Salad quilt on Kat & Cat’s post yesterday.  It has been so nicely quilted, with a colorful backing made from donations by Sandra.  It will be joining her Kat’s Covered In Love charity quilts for grieving families.
I’m really excited about a new squirrel project which hopped across my path from Jayne at Twiggy and Opal.  She posted a tutorial for her X block, 16 inches and really easy to make.  That evening I pulled out a charm pack of Kaffe Fassett cool colors, which I could not resist buying on sale recently.  What? Again?  This is the first block I pieced.

I changed my construction method to make it entirely with charm squares, including Toscana in coordinating colors and Bella white.  These are the last three blocks that are pieced.

All in all, it has been an unexpectedly productive month for me, partly because I have a squirrel to thank.
I hope you have also had a scrappy productive week, at least a week full of good things.  We seem to find those good things in unexpected times and places.

  1. I finally indulged in some FQ's of Kaffe prints this week. I've been able to resist them only because I didn't know what I would do with them. Now I do! They're going to be Turkey Track blocks – but your X's are going to be wonderful too!


  2. Your X blocks are lovely Paula, such pretty colours, I’m looking forward to seeing how this one develops. I’ve just had a lovely time reading your last few posts too, I love how the rainbow quilt turned out and your folded blocks are looking great too. I really like how you show your blocks in a light and a dark colourway.
