RSC18 -- Green & a RSC15 Flimsy!

This week I played with the green scraps for the Bonnie Hunter 2018 mystery, Good Fortune.  All my pieces were cut with Accuquilt dies.  I then took my show on the road (to school with me) and pressed them with this spiffy hobby iron that a lady at church gave me.  It worked out great! 

Here's what my view looked like while pressing (except with students in it.)

Here's my pretty stack of half chevrons.  Look at those luscious greens!  Ooo La La!

This week while looking for that binding that I made for my Catchin' Some Rays quilt just this week, I found a little bag of spool blocks.  These were part of the Bonnie Hunter 2012 leader and ender challenge called Just Spoolin' Around.  I remember making these in the color of the month.  2012 was was back before I really cared (or knew how) to hold a REAL quarter inch seam.  Some of them are really nice 3.5" blocks (3" finished).  Some...well, not so much.  But I played with the blocks that I found and it looked like this:

Before I knew it, it was a little flimsy!  I'm still thinking about how I will quilt it.  But it will make a cute little table topper for my kitchen table.

I'm linking up with Angela's blog for Scrap Happy Saturday and the RSC18.



  1. Love that pile of green and white mystery pieces! Your table topper is cute, too - very old-fashioned looking. A perfect use for those spools!

  2. Yay for a finished flimsy. It is always fun to turn an extra pile of forgotten blocks into something beautiful.

  3. Well done using up those odd blocks!

  4. What a great find!! Nice work on getting it to flimsy stage. Go, you!!

  5. Nice progression of your projects. That spoolin around is perfect with your plans too.
    I'd love it if you'd share which die you used as you go forth on your projects as it would be a fantastic incentive for me to do likewise and use my accuquilt go! and the many dies I've purchased. HUgs and Merry Christmas from your friendly stalker from Northeastern NY. lol

  6. So fun to find some blocks and then you have an instant flimsy! Very cute too.

  7. What a great way of using scraps. It is such a lovely top for a table topper.

  8. I trudged along with my clue #3s until I hit the halfway point, then stalled out. Good for you to carry on through!
    Those spools are going to make a wonderful table topper! Perfect use for them!

  9. Two for the price of one! I really like your spools. They have a slightly primitive feel, and I love primitive!
