I decided last month that I'm ready to start finishing some of the projects I've been piecing for RSC. The first finish to show you is a circle of squares finish.
There are 24 blocks in this flimsy which finishes at 59" by 86.5". I wasn't sure what fabric to use for sashing since the backgrounds of the blocks were so varied. I checked my solids box and I had 3 difference fabrics of turquoise that were similar, so that is what I used. I did have to do some piecing of smaller pieces to have enough sashing but it worked!
I used orange cornerstones since I hadn't made any orange circle of square blocks.
This flimsy will be used as a comforter top. It will be knotted and donated to charity.
Every month I had written on my list exactly how many blocks I had made until I reached the 24 block quota. I must have missed one month because when I displayed the blocks on the floor, I had 4 blocks too many.
I pulled 4 blocks that had the same background fabric and set them aside until the larger flimsy was finished. Then I took those 4 blocks and used them in a crib quilt.
I'll machine quilt the crib quilt with my sewing machine later this winter. Right now it measures 40.5" square but I'm sure it will shrink after quilting.

Both are lovely, Gretchen. Great use of RSC blocks.
I do love the color in both of these. Your choice of orange corner blocks was perfect. ~Jeanne
Great finish! I love the sashing color, and the baby quilt is lovely, too.

Lovely! The large colourful quilt and its little baby sized friend.
Great finish--love those orange cornerstones with the blue sashing...so neat!! Hugs, julierose
Nice job on making 2 quilt tops out of the one RSC project, Gretchen!!
Two pretty quilts! And thanks for the link to the awesome block.
I love both quilts you got out of your squares that have been slowly building... I love the blue sashing on the larger one and the speckled looking fabric on that darling baby quilt! Have a nice weekend friend :)
What a fun and pretty quilt! The sashing pulls it all together!
Lovely RSC quilt top. Great idea turning those extra blocks into a baby quilt. Thanks for linking up with oh Scrap!
I saved that pattern at some point and you may inspire me to use it for next year's SOS. Both quilts turned out wonderfully. Great job.
