all sewn up!

my 7 (seven!) RSC14 quilts are finally done. funny thing, though- I still have LOTS and LOTS of crumb blocks left! how did that happen? i'll be making a couple more quilts to get them used up- and then i'll be ready to start fresh for RSC15.
Rainbow Rows (42" X 54") I just used the crumb blocks, stacked according to color and value. Kona White in between the rows.
2 Stars ((42" X 51½") I used the crumb blocks again, making HSTs with the Kona White. the second star was an afterthought- since I still had SO MANY crumb blocks left over. I wanted to use the rainbow colors again, but in much, much duller tones.
(Modified) Bottled Rainbows (45 X 52") I used Rachel's bottled rainbow color chart. lovelovelove this one. with some of my leftover crumb blocks, I plan on making a small table topper. (for me. to keep)

Baby Soduku. (39 X 51") my own original design. I did a couple others with 9 colors, all the same, and I liked those much better. this is a bit muddled. but still fun, since I chose some of my favorite fabrics from my 3" suitcase.

Neutral Squares. (48"sq.) the inspiration was taken from Cheryl and AmandaJeans's book Sunday Morning Quilts.  that book was definitely the inspiration for me to start sorting and using my scraps. I was lucky to stumble upon RSC14- that gave me a direction and more inspiration for those scraps. and now the rest is history!
Color Wheel (42"sq.) made from a pattern purchased from Rachel. I plan to hang this finished quilt in the sewing room. (I made it a bit bigger than the pattern, and that 1" sure made a difference! i'll trim it down, and bind it in a dark color- I know that will make it look better) despite the curved seams (the wheel is pieced, not appliqued) this quilt was very easy to make.
Stacked Nines (45 X 53") despite the 9 patches being a late addition to my RSC14 piecing, and a frantic scramble to catch up with all the colors (didn't start these until September!) this is my favorite quilt. I'm tempted to keep it!
i have a special give-away planned with all these quilts (to my children!) the next time we're all together. with one son in the Navy and about to be deployed, another son (and his wife) stationed across the country, I don't even know when that will be! but that should give me plenty of time to get them all finished. i do plan on quilting them myself- i bought some Kona White and a roll of Warm and Natural. (all 50% off at  Joann's!)
i can't wait for RSC15 to start- i already have some ideas of what I'd like to do. i still have SO MANY scraps! the pile never seems to get any smaller!
lots more quilts and inspiration over at angela's blog: so scrappy.

Talk about being an overachiever. I can't believe you still have scraps left for next year after all of that. Love the crumb rows, but also the crumb stars. So many beautiful quilts!

What beautiful work. My favourite is the stacked nines too. Great effort to finish up 7 quilts. Wonder what you'll be up to next year.

U R amazing! 6 kids and you still have time for all that quilting? I need to figure out where all my time is going.
Love your crumb blocks with the white strips! Beautiful.
