RSC Saturday....

This week I found the stack of blocks from the 2015 RSC Challenge quilt that Angela designed. It is still accessible on her blog under the 2015 tab if you are interested in making your own!


I modified the borders for mine to extend the chains. This week is the week to sew the blocks into sections. I have one side of 2 blocks and the border sewn together and hope to finish the other side later today..... after I fix two things... the top part I guess I cut the white border a little too long as it is off and then by the yellow block - need to turn that connector block so the orange is on the bottom! Good thing I laid it out this morning!


The middle section is sewn into rows that just need to get sewn together. 


The thought process is that in smaller sections I should be able to machine quilt this on my small sewing machine. It is too big for my hand quilting frame.... so hopefully this will work as a quilt as you go. I am still trying to figure out quilting designs..... feel free to throw out ideas! I could use them. I am thinking an X through the connector and then making a petal around each section of the X..... Quilting design decisions is my least favorite part of quilting.


Linking up with the RSC Challenge for Multi colors today.

  1. Choosing colours is my most challenging thing. But quilting design decisions come when You are actually ready to quilt something. I like how the colours melt into each other.

  8. It's awesome!
    You could do straight lines on the diagonal... through the chain blocks and through both sides of the star points.

  12. It's going to be an amazing quilt! Choosing quilting designs is not my strong suit - guess that's why I like checkbook quilting (paying someone else to do it) so much!

  16. This is so intricate and lovely, but you sure do have to be careful along the way. Pics make it easier to spot those mistakes.,good going. The petals and lines should be easy with a walking foot. Lots of luck!
