Last RSC in Yellow....

I did manage to sew up my yellow bow ties this week but that was about it. Somehow I miscounted and got 11 not 12.... I guess while I am prepping some border blocks for my 1857 quilt today I'll have to find one more yellow to make a bow tie block with.

Just showing a progress photo of the bricks and stepping stones with the borders. It is a top now and just needs to get quilted...once I piece a backing for it... and give it a good press of course!

Linking up with the RSC Challenge. Head on over and see what other yellow scraps are being worked this week.

I do wonder what color July will bring. I have a trip planned next month with the kids up to Vermont for a couple of weeks so am thinking of what to bring with me to work on by hand. I have been thinking of prepping some appliqué basket blocks to bring with me....... in blue... but we shall see what color comes up in the rotation. I do have PLENTY of other hand work projects in process so I really don't need to start something new.... but.... something new is always fun to work on!

  7. Bricks and stepping stones makes a lovely country style quilt with the lovely checks and plaids. Wonder what July's colour will be? Blue or pink would work for me.

  8. I'm feeling the lure of shiny and new, too! Your Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt seems to have taken on a complete personality change with the addition of borders. They really calmed down the scrappiness! (I wondered when you would be taking the kids to Vermont and now I know. I'm sure you'll have a great trip!)

  11. I'm guessing blue for July since we've already had red. Sweet little bow ties in their sunny best. Love the border you chose for Stepping Stones.
