RSC17 continued



My RSC17 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) is actually a continuation of my RSC16 blocks - 15" Crown of Thorns blocks.  My original plan was to make a large quilt, but then I decided to make 2 baby quilts instead.  There were 8 dark/bright blocks and 6 lighter more pastel blocks already made. I added a purple one for January and put together a flimsy using the brighter blocks.

So now I've added a sea green/aqua block for February, along with a light lime green and a soft rose block.  Over the weekend I'm hoping to get the pastel flimsy put together too so that next week I can find backing and binding for both quilts. They will be gifts for twin baby girls due late spring.  The mom is a dear friend of one of my own girls.


 
Now I can figure out what I want to keep making to follow along with the RSC17 for the rest of the year - because I like the idea of playing with my stash, one color at a time, with no huge project hanging over my head.

  3. Great blocks. Twins! How exciting!
    BTW. A LOT of my big quilt plans turn into baby quilts : )

  4. I like hearing trad names for blocks. Now, if I were naming this today, I see it as a drop of water in a pond, radiating out... anyway they are pretty and will make a grand baby quilt. LeeAnna

  5. I'm with LeeAnna; I made a quilt of these blocks for my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. It was called English Wedding Ring, and I do prefer that name! My mum is English ;-) I love your colours.

  6. Those are so pretty in the colors you've chosen! You've said exactly what I like about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge - it's so fun to play with fabric but have no big project hanging over your head!

  7. A very smart idea getting two done at once. Have fun with the rest of your stash.

  9. I love this block. I found a small pile of them this week going through bins of projects. I think they will become a baby quilt as well. Happy sewing.
