Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

RSC19 - January is RED!

RSC 10 Red Blocks

I started making strip blocks for the RSC19 "red" month and just kept making them! They were fun.  I decided to make two, one with green background and one with grey background.  I am sorry that the lighting is not good.  Maybe next month, I can do better with that.  The green will be 13 blocks wide and the grey will be 14 blocks wide.  I have so much red left still.

I also made some 8-1/2" crumb blocks.  I have to make three more.

Additional red blocks

The top two blocks are from where I left off with RSC15! Yep, life got in the way, but I am hoping to finish the blocks I need with this round of RSC colors. I am so glad that Angela has kept the instructions for the RSC15 on the website.

Also, back in 2015, I started a scrappy stars quilt but didn't get all of those colors done, so I am attempting that one as well.

I don't know when I started the Bottled Rainbows blocks but I am back on a roll and hope to continue with the RSC colors until  I have a quilt.

I am linking up with Angela for the RSC19.  I am so grateful that she continues to do this.  I know it is a lot of work in addition to her busy lifestyle.

One Monthly Goal for September

One Monthly Goal for September

This quilt was a 2011 BOM called Henrietta Whiskers from Bunny Hill Designs. I really liked this quilt, but life got in the way and I didn't get to finish it.  I am so hoping to finish the applique and borders this month so I can get it quilted next month just in time for the season!

One Monthly Goal for August

OMG for August is the same as OMG for July!

I really had high hopes for finishing this quilt in July but I didn't quite make it.  I started out with a small daisy, all over design and quilted it more densely than I had planned, so it took me longer to quilt.  I just have to finish quilting the sewing machines and the irons rows and then do the borders.  Hopefully, this will be hanging on the wall in my sewing room by the end of this month!
