As soon as I realized it was Bloggers Quilt Festival, I knew immediately which quilt I would enter. Bare with me here, because I just finished and posted about it last week, but I've decided to enter my Scrappy Rainbow quilt, as I think its my favorite quilt I've made to date.
This quilt started really with no direction, aside from using up fabric from my scrap bins. This was the very first "blue blob" of fabric snippits that evolved into the finished product.
I really had fun piecing the centers of these blocks together randomly and just seeing where things went. While this didn't make quite as large of a dent in my overflowing baskets of scraps as I'd have liked, I just love picking out all the different fabrics in each block and remembering where I'd used them initially.
I think the repetitive white borders and second color borders help to ground the random center blocks, I'm not an overly huge fan of true "improvisational" piecing, so I think this is a nice balance of order and randomness.
This fun happy rainbow quilt is one of those quilts that I don't think I could part with if I tried, and is now nestled in its new home on our couch, just waiting to be snuggled.
Be sure to pop over to the Bloggers Quilt Festival hosted by Amy's Creative Side to check out all the beautiful quilt entries!
