2017 RSC June Yellow Week 2, Pot Holders, String Quilt Finish
Yellow is a good color for June. It's been a cool spring, but today is hot. Good garden growing weather.
Pictured are some scrappy yellow 36-patch blocks, some 16-patch blocks, some string blocks and a yellow crayon block. Last week I started making some Bonnie Hunter Crayon Quilt Blocks. Pictured is a small stack of 10. A good start. The free pattern is on her Quiltville website under the free patterns tab. Some colorful pot holders made it into the picture. Potholders on the left will be donated. I may keep the colorful supper scrappy hot holder.
To see what other made this week go here.
I finished my string blocks quilt. The centers are 2" blue strings. 1.5" strings are sewed on either side. The foundation for all the blocks are 7.25" pages torn from a phonebook. I didn't sew a border on it and I'm pleased with how it turned out. It's quilted with a free motion meander. After a go in the washer and dryer, it finished at 55" x 75". I love string block quilts and I look forward to making more this year.
