Squared Away Sampler

Once again I have decided to participate in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge held by Angela of soscrappy. This year, Angela is collaborating with Mari from The Academic Quilter to bring us the Squared Away sampler quilt. Angela has done a write up giving the overall details and you can read all about it here.

I made my three blocks this month and I like them - a lot! The instructions provided by Mari were very well done and I had no problem following them. I chose to make my blocks using 2.5" strips from my scrap bins and my Easy Angle ruler.  My blocks will finish at 10" and at three blocks per month by the time we reach the end of 2018 I should have enough for a nice sized quilt. :)

I am linking up with other RSC participants here.

Yesterday, I posted about my Scrappy Friends quilt and my angst. I am one step closer to starting the quilting on this quilt.

I have the backing made and I plan to load the whole kit and caboodle onto the frame today. I think I have decided what I am going to attempt to quilt on it - maybe. :)

Your blocks are lovely! I have one more to make, and I didn't think of using the lighter blue for the centre bit...thanks for the inspiration!

I was teetering on the edge of joining the RSC Squared Away, and seeing all these beautiful blocks this morning is too much to resist! I'm a goner now, for sure!

Your blocks look great. Hope your quilting is a great learning experience!

What wonderful blocks. And I love your choice of backing fabric. Those look like the original grumpy kittens who clearly do not appreciate the ducklings.

Ellen they are such pretty blocks, well done... and yes they will make up into a nice-sized quilt for sure.
