Welcome to Treadlestitches!
Our monster friend is sitting on top of my last 3 Rainbow Scrap Challenge baby quilts from 2021.
It was so much fun! But kind of crazy. Starting in October, I put the blocks together into 20 baby quilts. This is the second of two log cabin quilts.
This is the second ice cream cone quilt.
I'm pretending the blocks between the ice cream cones are stacks of fancy decorated cake slices. I can picture this quilt as a poster on the wall of a bakery/ice cream shop. In reality, it will go to a child in need through Project Linus.
The last quilt is yet another Friendship Star. At the beginning of last year, I had a stack of 2.5 in. hsts. They are finally used up!
So that's all 20 of the 2021 RSC baby quilts! For a while there, I felt like a one-woman baby quilt factory. It was an experiment, to make lots of blocks and then put them together at the end of the year, and I enjoyed the whole journey. I'm going to drop off the last of the quilts today for Project Linus.
This year's RSC quilts will be a little more focused and a little less frantic.
Is there a baby quilt in this box? Let's find out. What can I make with 3.5 in. squares and corresponding triangles?
How about Split Ninepatch? I had just enough red for four blocks. All the light triangles and squares came from the box too, but I know I'll run out of them pretty soon. So it will be like Stone Soup. I'll use as much as I can from the box, and add in as needed.
I can't decide which block I like best, the one with the Grinch or the Read one.HERE). It's part of her amazing (and free!) Scrap-a-palooza series, and it makes these blocks quickly and efficiently from strips. (Thanks, Cynthia!)
But I forgot how many of my novelty fabrics are one-way designs that can look a little weird upside down. I decided to leave this one as is,
and I modified the method slightly so these adorable children would all be right side up.
Speaking of adorable children,
We're living the sweet life around here.
I hope your week ahead is filled with hugs and stitches. Quilt stitches, of course!
I'm linking up with the following link parties. Can't wait to see what everybody is making!
