RSC17 - Neutrals



This month's 'color' for RSC was neutrals.  Our quilt guild's Summer Challenge and Charity project is library totes.  I had just enough of this cute Kitty neutral for two fronts and handles (add a strip in the back).  I pulled apart a solid jelly roll to match up some of the color in the cats.  And a neutral lining with 'fur' spots to round them both out.  

I have a few more cut out and prepped - using up my brights and slimming down some other kitty stash.  My weekend project mixed with some housework projects.



No piggies this month.  I want bright and fun little oinkers, so my neutral is the piggy (pen) barn.  I know some of you wondered what block I would put on the barn - simple and a bit colorful - to match the piggies.  Plus, they were scraps laying on the side table waiting to either be put away or used - I used.

My heart, soul, prayers are with those in the wrath of Harvey.

  4. Love the library totes. You know I'm a sucker for the cat fabric but i really like the striped backside to use up more of the focus fabric. The kiddos will love them!

  5. The totes are wonderful and such a great idea to use up that fabric, I may need to borrow that idea for some of the dog fabric I have. The barn will look so good with those bright piggies :)
