RSC 2018 Sampler

Greetings from South Texas where it is 51, overcast, a light mist in the air, and cold! – Finally.  This is my kind of weather and so much more palatable for my 30 minute walk in the mornings.  Today is a day where one just would like to coil up in the recliner and read a book, but I am on a mission, so not time to relax now.

I am ‘almost’ finished with RSC 2018 Sampler.  I finished the setting triangles yesterday, but made a boo boo (Gretchen warned me) and turned the center strip the wrong way!  Darn!  It was ripping time last night.  This morning I fixed that and ordered more of the fabric for the borders.   I always purchase my batiks from Web Fabrics in Virginia.  I have traded with Carly since 2004!  I belong to the 100 Club which provides me a 10% discount on all purchases!  Cannot beat that!  She has a booming on line business now and a store in Purcellville, VA.  It is a wonderful Quilt Shop to deal with.

RSC 2018 Sampler – without borders

I will have a 1 inch dark blue border to frame the quilt and then a 4 inch light blue border to complete it.  I am so excited to have this one completed on time.

Now on to cutting the border for York Lodge!  York is going to be a large quilt as the measurements are currently 73″ x 88″ and I will be adding 10 inches in borders.

Have a wonderful week and I am hoping that this cool weather continues for the rest of the week and that we do not go back to the 90’s until next summer!

  1. Hi Nanette! What a beauty this quilt is! Really nice job spacing out the different colors and blocks throughout the quilt top. It is very pleasing to the eye. Just wonderful and that dark border will really set it off nicely. I can’t wait to see it finished! ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. Sounds like you are cooking with gas now. I like the placement of the blocks. You are having fun with your sewing again that is good. Keep up the good work.


    1. No because there are two blocks that the points are too close to the edge and I would get counted off, but then again if it looks good after I finish the border I could enter it for fun! The York Lodge is the one I am shooting for a BOS! Or another Blue Ribbon – It is always a crap shoot! Thx for the nice complement!
