I've managed to stay on track with piecing the monthly RSC blocks this year but I've had enough, I'm ready for some finishes!
Bonnie Hunter's Leader/Ender project for 2020 was the easy breezy block. She gave the directions for two sizes, 6" finished and a smaller one that I didn't pay attention to.
I adapted the pattern to use strips from the 2.5" box and made blocks that finish at 8". I've made these blocks for over a year and have enough blocks to make at least 3 flimsys.
I'm tired of piecing these blocks so now I'm sewing quilt tops. All 3 of these flimsys have sashing and cornerstones.
Flimsy 1 - I pulled all the soft, pastel, light blocks. There were also some blocks made with older fabrics that didn't have a sheen, they were included in this bunch.
I arranged those 48 dreary blocks then pulled brighter or darker strips from the box and cut the 8.5" rectangles I needed for sashing. Of course I added yellow squares for cornerstones. It's too busy for my taste but I'm sure someone will love it.
Flimsy 2 - I used leftover gray charcoal fabric for the rectangles. When I saw there wasn't enough, I pulled a dark blue batik.
When it's in the 90's with a heat index factor of over 100, at grandma's you get to run around in your swimming suit so you're set for a quick dip in the little tub. He's showing you his muscles.
After these blocks were pieced, I arranged the last 48 block for another flimsy. This time I used a brighter blue batik. I had no plans for this fabric, time to be used! It's surprising how much fabric it takes for the sashing. I think this flimsy is my favorite of the three. Those orange blocks and bright blue sashing certainly light up the quilt!
All of these flimsys measured 63" by 83".
The easy breezy blocks were a fun easy project to sew along with RSC. Now I have three more comforter tops for the comforter bash.
