RSC Saturday in multi colors....

I figured I'd better find something this month to join in on the RSC Challenge. I made the mistake  was checking out blogs and stumbled upon the free patterns at quiltville.com a la Bonnie Hunter. I found this crayon box quilt... and just had to make a few blocks on Friday afternoon .....


While digging in the box for 2.5 inch strips I found these 6.5 inch crumb blocks and decided to sew sets of 4 together. I seem to have no green or orange crumbs.... I might need to remedy that. I certainly have the scraps hanging around to make some!

Then.. my quiet time in the sewing room was over as the girl decided she wanted to work on her quilt.  Something about banging her head on a board where Dad is expanding the deck off the pool. She is fine.  


A few of her hst blocks got sewn together and then I had to supervise the start of dinner. The kids picked the meal - kielbasa, mashed potato, corn, cucumber salad and pears... but seems I am out of pears so they are going with the jar of mixed fruit. I'll just have a few bites before I head out for my cooking club tonight. 
Linking up Saturday morning with the RSC Challenge.  Oh, if you are interested I finally got the cat and mouse quilt to a top stage this week. You can see that here.

  2. I'm hooked on Bonnie Hunter ideas. I haven't done the crayon box quilt yet, but have just moved on to cutting my scraps in strips to fill my 4 little art boxes. I see one of those in my future (probably 2018 or so.)Love your cat and mouse quilt top.

  3. The crayon box quilt looks like fun! I've been making some crumb blocks this year, too, and like your idea to sew four of the same color together. Loved your cat and mouse quilt, too!

  11. I made a Crayon Box quilt a while back - it was donated to a low-income senior for Christmas that year. From the note I received, it was very much enjoyed.

  12. That crayon box block sure uses up a lot of odds and ends. A fun block to put together.
