RSC Challenge - Brown Update

First, the giveaway for 100 hexagon papers (3/4") is still on.  Just go to my 10/15 post.

Second, I use about 1/4 yard for my three chunky churndash blocks I made and the four I cut.

Here's what they look like - at least the ones I've sewn:
They're not quite as dark as they appear.  I needed more light when I took this photo.  Also that's not how they will be laid.  They are 6 1/2" square.

Third, I used 1 3/4 yard to make a baby quilt.  Another B3 quilt for a preemie. So my new YTD total is 90.20 yards  de-stashed.  In this one I used the Milky Way block.
See how wrinkled it looks.  It isn't pleatted or anything.  After much experimentation I think it was I used two different threads and the machine didn't like it. I did lighten the pressure foot tension, but it didn't seem to make a bit of difference.  If you have any ideas to share about this problem, please let me know.

I sewed little bears in the full blocks as the background fabric was bears.

Bye for now - have a housefull of family to interact with.

liking the churn dash blocks. Re the quilt is the wrinkling to do with washing it I wonder, I find some of mine have wrinkled, put it down to wadding shrinkage in the wash, mind you I quite like the wrinkled look just as well I suppose as I cannot undo it!

If it is too stretched when basted it will wrinkle. Did you try loosening off both the top and bottom tension. This does make a difference.nwhat type of batting did you use. A higher loft will give a more gathered look.

Love the chunky churn dashes. Sometimes on small projects I use a spray baste, but then it would have to be washed of course. I like the little bears in the center. Very cute!

Milky Way block - such a pretty block! I like the crinkly look - you may have started a new trend. :)

I like wrinkles, I think it makes quilts look more homey.

When it's washed, it would wrinkle a little anyway. I have no clues on that to offer. Great two ways to de-stash. =) Enjoy the family time.

Love your wee quilt. Did you loosen up the presser foot pressure dial? It will sometimes cause wrinkles like this. Just a suggestion that might help you.

I love your little quilt. I think wrinkles make them look cozy. Sometimes after a go in the washer and dryer all is forgiven : )
