RSC 2017 – Beat the Clock!

Today I found a pattern that I really like and am going to use it for my RSC 2017 project!  YEA.  Happy To Be Scrappy  has the quilt on her Blog and I have been admiring it along with Gretchen.  So I did some research and Deb gave me some information on how she made the quilt and now I have finished 3 of the blocks this afternoon.  Now remember, I am not a scrappy person, so it will be interesting to see how this works out.

There is an off-setting block that will go with each block, but I am no longer “Wonder Woman” like I used to be and am calling it quits for today – the last day to post the Purple Blocks.  I am going to do something with my 4 patches, just not sure what!  Both Gretchen and I have added a quilt to RSC 2017 project.  It amazes me how we can start out on a project like this and then at the very end change directions.  But isn’t if fun to do!

I am now pleased with this and enjoyed making the blocks.  It is really a very easy quilt to make so I will enjoy the process.  I am going to try to make the 3 off setting blocks for the blocks and hopefully can post them on Tuesday.  Wish me luck.

Starting another project tomorrow Robin’s Nest by Karen Styles and hopefully I will be in the Applique mood tonight!  The next bi-monthly quilt will be the Quiltmania Mystery Quilt.  It will be a nice slow project and the first 2 blocks are reverse applique.  I am trying to find the background fabric that they are using, but of course the 2 places you can order them from US are not selling any of the fabric because they are only going to use them for the Kits.  DARN!

IF and I say IF, I can get caught up on my Stonefields,  Margaret Potts Quilt, and A Bountiful Life then I will start Rowdy Flat Library Quilt.  It is a very intense appliqued quilt designed by Susan Smith.  I have my fabrics, just need to double up on my quilting time!  Hummmm  guess I need to clone myself!

Have a great week-end.

  1. Love your 16 patch blocks! The purples are so rich! I can’t wait to see the setting blocks and how your quilt will go together.

    • Thank you, I love purple and then all the autumn colors. I am headed to the cutting table to make 3 of the setting blocks to make sure this is one I want to make. I am such a control freak on my colorways, so this is good practice to do more scrappy – controlled scrappy that is! LOL

  2. Lofty plans but I think you can accomplish a lot towards them. The Robin’s Nest design is a really good looking quilt. I have been so tempted by the Stonefields design but so many of the quilt blocks are ones I would not need a pattern for. Can’t see spending that much for the pattern because of that.

    • Oh the dreamer I am. I need to spend more time in the AM on the Vitamin D lamp – more energy! It took me about 4 months to make the decision to purchase the pattern. I thought that the $90 for Sue Garman’s pattern was a lot…. I doubt if I would do that again.

    • Yes, and so glad Gretchen mentioned it to me again. I have to really discipline myself because when I read other Blogs and see a great pattern, I want to make it right now! Dreamer that I am!

  3. I love your purple blocks. Scrappy can be hard. Good luck with all those quilts you have in the works. I sometimes want to clone myself also so that I can complete more crafts.

    • Thx, Yes especially when one has a difficult time in just looking at fabric and seeing color and not paying attention to the design. That always messes my brain up! I need all the luck I can find on what I want to do.

    • I had choices between Omigosh!, Ms Billings, Sweet Surrender, Di For Mountmellick, etc, but have been eyeing Robin’s Nest for a long time and decided that it would be the best to start first.

  4. Wow you are on fire, fabulous and I love what you are jumping into. When I get Rowdy Flats pattern I will start that too. I may give the Quiltmania mystery another look too. Keep going girl and have fun.

    • Would you please tell my body that!!!! These 70’s are rough on us aren’t they! Maybe I can catch up on my applique (ha) and we can do one block together (Ha Ha) I figured on the Mystery Quilt that there is only 1 block a month and so far they are not that difficult (another HA) I have ONE fat quarter of the background fabric listed and have given up on using that one, but I do have 2 yards of another Penny Rose fabric that has small black and red dots and think it will work.

  5. I wish, it seems that each time I think I am headed to get on top of things Life Happens. I was hoping to clone myself as a 30 year old married and rich and quilting all day long! Darn.
    Have a great day.
