RSC2020 May Blocks

Seems I have lots of projects going currently, jumping around from small to large, scraps to yardage, brights to subdued. Never a dull moment that's for sure!

Today, I'm back to scraps, stitching up more pinwheel blocks for the May RSC2020 color of dark green and sage.

I'm proud of myself for sticking with this quilt-along, though after five blocks, I'm still not sure how I'll put them together. I could do the standard squares in a row,

though that looks quite boring. Maybe with some sashing it might come to life?

Or how about on point?

This looks more promising, don't you think? Now those pinwheels have movement! Maybe the blank areas could be filled in with the other squares I'm making?? Hmm, don't know right now, but will think about it in the fall as the months wind down and RSC2020 comes to a close.

What I know for sure is that I'm committed to finishing an RSC this year - gotta bust those scraps! How about you? Playing along?

Happy Quilting!

  1. I like the on point better. I am thinking the blocks need the separation that would provide.

  2. I like how you "made" your fabric and then cut them up - what about squares in between the pinwheels in the same way with the fabric "made"

  3. I do think they look more interesting on point. I know you will do something outstanding with them.

  4. Your pinwheels are scrumptious-dilly-iscious!

  5. I have yet to start a RSC, just too many other things going on! But everyone's interpretations are neat to follow. Love your greens, my fav color range.

  6. I also like how you made your own "fabric" for these. Great use of scraps! IMO, on-point will win every time!

  7. Hi Susan! Pretty little pinwheels all on point . . . lovely! They are a great use of scraps, and I can't wait to see them all wrapped in a finished bow towards the end of the year. Thanks so much for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

  8. Your crumb blocks have turned into great pinwheels! I love them on point, too.

  9. On point looks great. Those scrappy pinwheels are so pretty. Take care, Mary.

  10. I love your crumb pinwheels. They are so freewheeling and fun!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
