rainbow scraps

Well, obviously I've still been distracted.  I have found time to sew and quilt, it's the sitting down at the computer to write a post that I have a hard time with.  Now it's summer, and that creates a whole lot of different distractions....
I finished up my Rainbow Scraps quilt several months ago, and I still love it.  It's so colorful.  I've seen this quilt several times around blogland, and I love each of those too.  You can't go wrong with scraps and rainbows, I suppose.
 I copied Jolene, and went with black and white for the binding.  I almost did grey, but this was just so much better.
 blue on the back, and all from my stash!  Yay!  It's my ongoing goal--to try to use up my stash.  In my mind I have visions of using up my entire stash, and then being able to add to it.  But the reality is, I have got to get sewing if I want that to happen.

Beautiful!

And I understand feeling torn about using up your stash. I want to but then start to panic if I use up too much of any one fabric. So silly!

What a great quilt.

I love it! I'm a sucker for anything rainbow.

I meant to get in touch with you sooner, but I wanted to thank you for putting together your zigzag quilt tutorial. It inspired me to get off the fence and make my first quilt, a rainbow zigzag quilt. Here's a pic: http://thenearestfuture.blogspot.com/2012/02/mimis-rainbow-quilt.html

I love your blog--thanks for the inspiration!

Oooh, I do love a good rainbow quilt, and this one is stunning. I bet you had fun sifting through your scraps and deciding which to use.

Wow this is so gorgeous, well done! I have just finished piecing a rainbow squares quilt top made with lots of bits of my favourite vintage fabrics, I'm pleased with it so far but I think your scrappy design is more interesting than squares - something to try in the future! Thanks for the inspiration. :) Rachel @myrainbowvintagehome.blogspot.com

I dream of having a stash big enough to do this! Great job. Do you know what the flower fabric you used on the back is?

Rachel Hauser said...

But what a stash it is! You have so many beautiful fabrics. Enjoy them =) The siren call of new fabrics is strong, I know.

Beautiful quilt. I have two baby quilts to make in the next six months (one for me, eek!), and I just might do something like this.

Congrats on your beautiful baby girl. I hope you're getting some sleep!
