Progress on THREE RSC Projects! -- RSC19

With the winter snow and a few days off school I have made tons of progress this week!  I'm excited to post that I finished a project that I started with the RSC17, Pat Sloan's 182 Day Winter Solstice Challenge.  It was part of her I Love to Make Quilts series.

I finished the 2018 Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt top called Good Fortune.  I used tons of red/white four patches to make the beautiful pieces that connect across the quilt.  I may add a bigger/wider border.  I'm still thinking about that.  The extra border would make it a more useable size AND make the longarmer (me) happy to not worry about losing all those beautiful points when pulled slightly in the frame and trimming.  I normally don't worry about that, but with all the strings in there I'm expecting a little stretch when quilting this quilt.

I made it according to the original clue and have tons of red/white four patches left.  Plus I have been using them as leader/ender blocks this month.  I'm moving on to other scrappy colors for the leader/ender four patches.  Obviously I have enough red for a while. 

I also finished a long cabin style quilt in the pink strings that I made for the RSC a couple years back.

I'm linking up on Angela's blog for the RSC19 here.  Happy stitching!  Be safe out there.

Lots of eye candy on your blog on this wintery day! I wonder if the storm is worse on your side of Lake Erie than it is here? I plan on staying in and getting some quality time in my sewing room :)

Congrats on completing your RSC17 quilt in RED!!! Off to see if it got its own post (so I can get a better look at the quilting.)
