Rainbow Scrap Challenge - White

Start with some white scraps, cut some 2 1/2 inch squares, pair with some more scraps squares and you end up with four patch blocks.  Add in some 5 1/2 inch squares in bright colours and you end up with a rainbow hued quilt.
Seems kind of appropriate for the RAINBOW scrap challenge.    I have managed to get the first four rows sewn together tonight and I am hoping to get the next four sewn together in the next day or so.   I have to get the blocks pinned and rows numbered by end of tomorrow anyway as the floors get mopped on Tuesday and, as you can see, the bottom blocks drape on the floor - not good! 

I have a special home in mind for this quilt but I am not saying anything until I know  can get it finished in time.  I am still trying to finish Bruce's quilt and I don't want to let that slip by.  I also have a lot on this week so I will just have to see how much I can get done!  I am off to a sew in to finish off quilts to go to those affected by the Queensland Floods so my goal is to be quilting this quilt by Saturday......hmmmm.....watch this space I guess!

So, can't stop to talk - lots of sewing to do!

Till next time........happy stitching!


  1. Wow, you amaze me with how much you can get completed in a day, let alone a week! The quilt looks great and like something great for busting scraps!

  2. you make it sound so easy !!! I love the rainbow quilt!

  3. I am LOVING how this quilt is coming together!! It is Gorgeous!!!

  4. Good use of your white, I haven't thought of anything yet for the challenge unless maybe some of the receiving blankets, etc which are white. They were all from fabric given to me.

  5. That is a beautiful, happy quilt! The colors are so cheerful! I like the controlled scrappiness!


  6. What a beautiful rainbow of scraps. Best of luck getting it finished up in time for your goal. Knowing that a quilt has a home is always a great motivator to get it done.
