Sorry to not share this finish sooner but rather than write about this quilt twice in a short period of time, I thought I would kill two birds with one stone as they say. The 15th Scrap-A-Palooza quilt is also going to be one of my entries into the Spring Blogger's Quilt Festival hosted by
For those new to my blog, I host a series called Scrap-A-Palooza. About once a month, I make a new scrap quilt and share my process as I put the quilt together. It is usually shared in four parts. And when I finish a quilt like I am sharing today, I link up all of the past posts so you can recreate a similar quilt if you are inspired to do a little scrap busting.
This quilt started with a need to empty a few of my color bins. They were getting a little difficult to close.
In the second post, I shared my cut sizes and block construction. I decided to go with a simple nine patch this time around.
Then it was time to get the blocks up on the design wall and decide on a final layout. Lots of options were provided and the finished quilt top was shared.
And now here in the finale, there are pictures of the finished quilt! I am quite happy with it - not only did it provide a home for a number of scraps but this quilt was fast and easy to put together..
It looks so wonderful there next to my little succulent garden.
My rainbow was missing purple so I decided to add it to the back. This older Tina Givens print that was hiding in my stash was perfect! I didn't have quite enough so I added a strip of an orange woven which shows off the simple swirl quilting nicely.
I will be entering this quilt in the ROYGBIV category. I cannot wait to see all of the other eye candy that will be linked up this time around. I always discover so many great new blogs to follow.

If this is your first visit to my blog - thanks! In addition to the Scrap-A-Palooza series, I host a link party every Sunday called Oh Scrap! Besides scrap quilting, I am always sharing lots of other projects in all different techniques. I love to paper piece, EPP, and hand applique. I hope you choose to follow along to see what I am up to next!
