Last Black Saturday





The month of October's color for RSC13 was Black/Grey and I really didn't want to add that to my blocks in progress as I plan to use black as sashings. corner stones, or setting triangles.  Then I remembered.....


I had been cutting 'bricks' each month and would need the 'stepping stone' (4-patches) which I wanted to use black and muslin.  So I pulled different blacks with some sort of tonal grey in them - some leaf, some dots, some vines, some that look like rain splash.  So starting early this morning I whipped up 110 stones.


I have gotten all the rows stitched and tomorrow I will put them into a flimsie.  This is a free pattern on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville - called bricks and stepping stones.

I will be linking up over at SoScrappy - check out what other's have done with black/grey for the month.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  8. Do you know about Jo's challenge at Jo's Country Quilts to finish a Bonnie Hunter quilt before the new mystery begins? This project would qualify. It looks great.

  13. I was the same. I couldn't bring myself to make a black 16-patch. I dont have much variety of black, mostly solid kona. But because my project for scraps this year is the 16-patch stars quilt, I forget that we can mix other colors as our scrap project. So next year, I have a few ideas saved in a folder. I may make at least two of them (LOL), a few are wonderful to insert my crumb blocks into. So I am excited to start RSC14 next year. I still need 3 colors to finish my project for this year, and I have it all figured out; brown was one of them. This is just the greatest challenge, as we will never run out of scraps, how can we not be inspired to participate to the end?
