Squared Away and RSC 2018

Well, today is the first day of my New Year so I decided since RSC 2018 is providing a pattern each that I will participate.  This month is blue.  I am going to make 3 blocks each month of the colors provided.  Today I have Block already completed.  YEA for me, and it was fun to do something bigger than  a 3 1/2″ blocks.  I have a drawer full of Hoffman fat quarter batiks and really need to start using them.  I have 3 different blues that I will be using for the contrasting cross in the middle.  The blocks are 10 1/2″ unfinished and a 10″ finished.

I think I will enjoy RSC 2018  and  Squared Away   because it is only 3 blocks a month and they appear to be very easy and can be made quickly.

Have a great week-end

    1. It is very easy to make. The one thing to watch for is how the seams are set for when you are putting the block together. It was such a nice break from the small blocks I am usually working on.

    1. Thank you Bella, I love my batiks. I was going to try to use my Moda’s, but decided it was time to get into those lucious fat quarter bundles that have been gathering dust! It is a fun block to make – good practice to get points accurate!


  1. Rainbow Scrap Challenge by So Scrappy. She does one each by providing the colors for the month, but never a pattern. This year she teamed up with someone and now the give you the color and a pattern to follow! It will be the only on line that I will work on this year. How is the weather in Tombstone? I miss being there, but we have had a great winter here.. I am finally starting my New Year – Feel better than I have in a month! YEA. Take care


  2. The block is simply beautiful!! Those blues are so lovely. I’m tempted to jump in and start the BOM but so far I’m standing firm and just saying NO!


    1. Thank you Lori – Heck hope I can inspire myself! Body is healing nicely – think I will continue to use the HEB Curb Side service – not interested in being sick anymore! Hoping you are feeling better too. Time for 2018! Have you checked out the So Scrappy RSC 2018 Challenge – you might like this one, I am going to participate!


    1. Morning Becky thank you, No I will not mix the batiks. I tried that years ago and the thread count is just to much of a difference. The white is not a batik, but a fabric that is equal to the batiks and no issues encountered. Are you ready for another cold snap this Thursday? Have a great day!


    1. Thank you Thank you Ms Karen – this time the project is laid out for me and I will enjoy it more – call me lazy! Hope all is well. Can we burn the cedar trees? Have a great day –


  3. Yup – I am really beginning to love the blues more and more – want to make a total blue and white quilt or a red and white quilt – will see what the year brings!
