I've been using the Rainbow Scrap Challenge prject to empty 2 bins of charm squares that I collected a long time ago. One set was 30's, the other batik. They are the 2 projects that I've worked on at my quilt club sewing weekend each month.
I got this top put together this weekend. It used up the 30's charms and a set of fat eighths that were soft plaids and stripes. This is also a block that was on my "list" for a long time. Now that it's done I admit that I do not love it. It's not ugly and I think it will be a nice cuddly quilt. It used up the fabric that I wanted used and it got that block off my list is it's a win!
It will be just fine for what it's for.....a bedspread for a twin bed in the guest house. I ordered a 30s repro wide backing so might get this quilted soon. It will get Baptist fans so I also ordered the QuiltEZ stylus for the Innova so I can use my Baptist Fan boards. This one might get quilted soon.
Hmmmm, after taking this photo I went to the guest house to try it on the bed. It's a few inches short! I could make another row of blocks but the though of making any more of these blocks makes me groan. The top of the quilt will be under the pillow so I think it's going to get a top border of the cream fabric only. Now it will look like a true old fashioned quilt that was forced to fit!
Today I'm linking up at Freemotion by the River.
