My second quilt entry into the Fall 2015 Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's Creative Side is one of my favorite Scrap-A-Palooza quilts.
For those of you new to my blog, the Scrap-A-Palooza series is an ongoing event where I share the details of a scrap quilt I am making. All of the quilts are sewn from scraps and are usually really quick and easy. I try and share the main assembly steps along with my thinking behind the choices I make. Sometimes, other quilters join me and I share the quilts they create too.
This fun, scrappy circle quilt is my entry into the ROYGBIV Quilt category.
(You can read the original post here.)
It was made entirely from my scrap bin. Bits of fabric were grouped by color then sewn into offset log cabin blocks. While I shared a few other possible layouts, I settled on these fun dots of color.
I really enjoyed using low volume scraps for the background on this quilt. I am really pleased with how it turned out.
A subtle print for the backing and a golden binding finished it ff nicely.
I played around with swirls and feathers for the quilting. I did all the quilting in a simple white thread.
Using my scraps and playing with color is something I do quite often.
Who doesn't love a Rainbow!
A big thanks to Amy for hosting this event.
