The RSC color for February is PURPLE with a touch of yellow! Fun, fun, fun! I got busy as soon as Angela at SoScrappy put the word out!
Here are my 3 Purple Rainbow Twist for the month. These are such easy strip blocks to piece.
Did you see the LSU fabric? Here's a closeup!
Then I worked on my Pinwheel blocks. All 6 are made for the month. You'll find more LSU fabric in these! I don't actually use scraps in these. I raid my fat quarters!! I cut a 5 1/8" strip from a fat quarter and can get all the pieces I need from that strip.
I love when I can get the seams to rotate like this. Everything just lays flatter!
I did more sewing this week because I had to put the Rainbow Twist blocks on the "fast track". This will be a raffle quilt for Mountain View M. S.,where my daughter teaches. She will need it by November, but instead of mailing it, I want to hand deliver it to her when we drive to Portland this summer. No pressure here!! These blocks are 16" and I need 20 for the quilt I have planned. So I just looked at the colors Angela used in last years challenge and went to work. So besides the 3 purple I made, I also got 2 Red blocks finished.
And 2 pink blocks!
And I also made 2 'Microwave Bowl Potholders'. OMG!! These are great! I have some favorite bowls that I insist on putting in the microwave and they get super H-O-T. So with these Potholders, the problem is solved and my fingers are saved!!
Just remember, if you make these, you have to use 100% cotton fabric, 100% cotton batting and 100% cotton thread.
And I also made one more Car Trash Bag, but haven't taken the pic yet.
So needless to say I had another great week in the studio. But next week I start my Monday off with jury duty! I'm looking forward to it, just don't know if it will turn out to be one day or five! It's my first time serving in Texas, and we just moved here a year ago!!!
I had fun playing with purple this week. Hop on over to SoScrappy and take a look at what others have made this week. Should be fun!
...........Sew till next time...........
