Scrap-A-Palooza! Quilt #15 Part One

It seems like such a long time since I have posted a Scrap-A-Palooza quilt.  After finishing my little scrappy string quilt, I have been digging through my scraps waiting for inspiration to strike and everything I pulled to work on just didn't seem to want to come together.  





Today, as I was putting away some scraps, I realized I really need to work with some bright colors.  I grabbed these five drawers of scraps and was instantly inspired to make a rainbow quilt.  I think I am going to do something with a simple nine patch block.  I hope to put a nice dent in these scraps with this quilt so I am going to keep any solids or unifying sashing to a minimum.




I realize now that I haven't made a rainbow quilt since I made the scrappy version of my Wiggle Time pattern.  And that was back in 2013!



Quilting is more fun than Housework 
Now that I have my scraps it is time to finalize a plan and start cutting. I will be back next week to share how I determined my cut sizes and maybe even start laying out the blocks

Usually once inspiration strikes I move at a pretty fast pace!

So check your own scrap bins and fabric stashes - maybe you will decide to sew along and make your own rainbow quilt.  You can share your progress on Oh Scrap! each Sunday afternoon.

wow, how organized are you to have such spiffy colour filled drawers to keep you inspired. A happy rainbow quilt is sure to be in your future. I think spring does this for us. Happy Quilting

Hope to come along for this ride on #15, Cynthia! I have a few scraps with me in blues, reds, greens and purples, so I can get a start. Two weeks to go and my entire scrap collection (and stash! I've missed you so) will be once again at my disposal.

I love rainbow quilts, but unfortunately my stash is currently packed away. I can't wait to see your rainbow shine though! :)

You just can't beat a rainbow quilt for making something cheerful! I like the one you showed, and I'm sure the next will be just as delightful.
