Wow, March is pretty much over! How did that happen? No idea, but since we're at the end of the month, it's time to show off some of my RSC progress for March. This time around it was light and bright greens, which was certainly appreciated because I am so ready for some greenery in the form of spring flowers and actual leaves on the trees. There are a few buds, but no leaves just yet. Just look at the backgrounds of my pictures!
One of my RSC projects for this year is the patchwork scrap stars. Here are this month's green ones:
As you can see, I made one that's the lighter green and one that's brighter, with a purple star and an aqua star. Usually these are made with white stars, but I thought that would be too boring for me. I like how these are turning out. Here's the lot of them so far:
Aren't those festive? Imagine how they're going to look once we add in some warmer colors!
Another one of my projects is making these scrappy 9-patches to use up some of my treasure trove of 2-inch squares:
These are so easy to make and go so fast. I made 8 of them this month, which gives me 45 all together:
I think these look great together, and I really am glad that I made them all with white centers. Once we get through the year, I'm going to make these into some donation quilts, probably using Bonnie Hunter's free pattern for dancing 9-patches. I'm hoping to have enough for two quilts, so I'll need a bunch more. Good thing there's a bunch of colors left!
So, those and my Clay's Choice stars are the blocks that I managed to make from what I pulled out of the scrap bin this month. I also dug deep and cut up all the green pieces for my version of Bonnie Hunter's En Provence quilt:
Most of those are somewhat darker than the other scraps, more medium greens than lighter ones, but I did manage to pull most of them from the "light green" bin. And now they'll be used in a nice, happy quilt, so it won't matter what we call them.
So now that the greens are done for this month, as I promised at the beginning of the year, I am giving away what remains in the light green bin at no charge at all to one lucky winner:
Since I used up a lot of the greens, and because there are some small pieces here, I'm also including some 2-1/2 inch strips that are kinda green, along with an unopened spool of white Craftsy thread and the usual handfuls of 2-inch and 1-1/2 inch squares. I don't know anything about the thread, but they sent it to me with another thread order, as a sample, I guess. I almost never use white thread, and I have plenty, so it will go to whoever takes these remaining scraps off my hands.
This giveaway is now closed! Thanks all!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. We will be celebrating Easter, and many of our friends will be having Passover Seders. I certainly wish you a blessed time if you're celebrating either one, and if you're not, have a lovely weekend as well!
