Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012 Strip Quilt Quilted

All done. After a go in the washer and dryer it was 80 1/2" x 59 1/2". Almost 60" wide.
I love the scrappy back, all from stash. A close up of the quilting shows the strips were quilted with wavy lines and the large colorful squares were quilted with a meandering free motion pattern.
I used Superior Threads, So Fine #50 weight with a # 80 top-stitch needle and The Bottom Line #60 weight thread in the bobbin.
I brought the binding to the front so it would appear the quilt had three borders. I love this quilt!
From my stash I made a backing for the purple rainbow challenge 12 block sampler top I pieced in June, here. I pieced 3 extra blocks be go on the back of the quilt.
I'll sandwich the quilt top and back with Warm and White next week. May quilt it with unevenly spaced diagonal lines with purple cotton threads and make a scrappy purple binding from stash and scraps.
Tomorrow we post rainbow scrap challenge projects made with brown fabrics.
