RSC Saturday....

My yellow for the week. One 16 patch block of 2.5 inch squares.

Yesterday's post had a finish of the RSC 2015 quilt here and the binding got finished on the Grandmothers Choice quilt in purple and green.

I also looked in the drawer of tops and pulled this little 50x60 one of 6 inch churn dashes to work on next. These were made a few years ago I think with the RSC Challenge. I made 12 each month and divided them in half to make this top. The extras - 6 of each color are on the side.

I pulled some leftover batting pieces and just need to sew them together with a zig zag stitch and then make a backing. I think these 6 parts will work together to make a batting.

I will probably do walking foot quilting - maybe a big cross hatch of 3 or 4 inches on the diagonal? and then a solid color binding of whatever I can find big enough in the stash.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned doing something with the green homespun... well greens and browns got cut into big rectangles and then lots of four patches were made.... these will become a bricks and stepping stones quilt from the free quiltville pattern here.

Head on over to the RSC Challenge and see how others did with the yellow scraps this week.


  1. Love those little busy bees in your 16-patch....i also sew my batting leftovers together...
    hugs, Julierose

  2. Your Rainbow quilt for the last post is absolutely stunning! Congratulations! The Grandmother's Choice is really nice, too. You are a finishing MACHINE, aren't you. The churn dashes are going to be fun - you can't go wrong with that classic. What fun progress you've made recently!

  3. A nice yellow block for this month's RSC. Great churn dash blocks and already so close to being a finished quilt.

  4. It's good to also use up those weddings and not waste them too. Great work

  5. One YELLOW block is better than none (which is what I made last week!!) You've got it in that lovely quilt top you dug out, too. Way to attack those UFOs!!!

  6. LOVE the churn dashes on point!!! Just beautiful. I love seeing your RSC15 sampler as well. Jobs well done!
