It always feels so good when a project comes together quickly!
In my last post on this month's Scrap-A-Palooza quilt, I shared the rainbow blocks I made. These 9 patches will make 9" blocks so they are big and bold!
This week, I played with them on my design wall.
First, there was this layout...
I placed the blocks randomly.
And then this one...
I set the colors diagonally across the quilt.
But I finally settled on this layout. I really like the look of the colors set in a column!
Once I had the layout, it was hardly any effort at all to add a 1.5" sashing between the blocks and put a 3.5" border around the whole top! I went with Kona Snow - probably becasue it was sitting there on the corner of my ironing board!
I love the big 9" blocks of color I added in place of some of the 9 patches.
And because it has started raining here and will continue for days, I had to use this photo of the quilt top on my kitchen floor. There will be no outdoor photos for a while!
Now to dig around for a backing. I am sure there are going to be lots of options as this fun quilt has so many colors.
And as I was putting away my scraps, I noticed I didn't have to squish down the fabric to get the drawers to close...Now that is progress!
Hope to have this one quilted by the end of the month!
