Friday Finish: Pink & Green Scrap Quilt

Pink & Green Beer Quilt
I finished quilting the pink and green scrap quilt that Lisa and I made together. I also ended up doing the binding because I had 3 days of online webinars this week so had a lot of hand-sewing time. 

I think it came out very well and as soon as the label is done (on Lisa's task list) we can give it to our friend for whom we made it.

This was my One Monthly Goal for June.

One Monthly Goal: June 2024

My May goal was to finish the green scrap quilt I pieced for the RSC. I made a lot of progress --it is about half-quilted--but did not finish it. It is a present for my sister, but I didn't end up getting to see her last month (she lives 5 hours away). I hope to visit her in July, so that is my new deadline for that project. 

My goal for June is to quilt a pink and green scrap quilt that Lisa and I made for a friend of ours who is battling cancer. I am stippling it and have already made a good start, so I should be able to get it done pretty quickly.

Scrappy Saturday

Pink scrap blocks
I finished my log cabin blocks and my heart/alternate blocks in pink for the month. I have some other projects I am working on so am probably done with pink scraps for the month. Will see what color June brings.

posted about a disappearing 9-patch recently. I had seen quilts with this block but never understood how it came out of a 9-patch. Now I get it! Seems like a great scrap-buster block. Sane, Crazy, Crumby Quilting also had a some good scrap-busters a while back: checkerboards in RSC colors with a constant background (green in her case) and Cheerio blocks which are adorable. I am really enjoying doing the RSC so am trying to keep track of blocks I might want to make from scraps going forward.

Scrappy Saturday

The blocks for the pink and green quilt are done and my co-conspirator is sewing them together (the top will come back to me for quilting). 

I sorted out pink scraps and have begun working on my 6 pink log cabin blocks for the month. They are coming along well so far.

Scrappy Saturday

The RSC24 color for May is pink which works out great because the last week of April I started working on a collaborative quilt for a friend who is dealing with medical stuff and we decided that pink and green scrappy was what we wanted to use.  

I went through my pinks (and greens) and pulled a bunch which we cut into strips to use in our planned quilt. So far I half of the blocks for the top are pieced and the other half are almost done. 

I plan to do 6 pink log cabin blocks and the heart/alternate block in pink later this month.

One Monthly Goal: May 2024

Green scrap quilt in progress
My March goal was to machine quilt a cheater for the dog, which I  completed. By the time I was done my swirl meanders were looking pretty good. I started quilting a top with the same pattern for my Guild's charity project and my swirl meander continues to improve. I didn't set an April goal--the whole month somehow got away from me. 

In May I want to finish the green scrap quilt I pieced for the RSC. I need to finish the quilting (which I started but haven't gotten far with) and then bind it. It is a present for my sister and her birthday is at the end of the month.
