Boy, am I on a roll! I have another finished scrap quilt to check off the list this week.
This year, for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge block with So Scrappy, I decided to make an easy block. I used 2.5" scrap squares and made a simple 9-patch block. I then cut two 6" squares and cut once diagonally for each corner of the block. Then I trimmed the block down to size.
I made the blocks in a rainbow of colors and used various black and white prints for the backgrounds (many of which came from my scrap bin).
I decided it looked best without a border. I love that it is so happy and colorful!
For the backing, I found the perfect bright colored dot fabric I picked up on sale a few moons ago. I even used up some bright colored scraps for the binding.
The quilting was a lot of fun. I loaded the quilt sideways on my longarm and did a continuous swirl across the black and white squares and a line design (it always makes me think of as a frequency signal) across the 9 patches. It went really quickly just working back and forth across the quilt.
I have already started blocks for another quilt just like this one. I love how this one turned out!
This will be my third quilt being linked up with Quilts in the Queue for the 100 Quilts for Kids event. (My goal is six this year.) A local organization called Bags of Love is getting a big stack of quilts from me this year!
There is still time for you to make a quilt for the event. Need ideas? There are lots in the Scrap-A-Palooza Quilt Gallery. Just grab your scraps and pick a project. They are all fast and easy!
