2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, February, Pink, Week 1, A Finish and A Win


This Christmas a niece and her hubby announced that they are going to have a baby. My niece loves scrappy quilts. The scrappier, the better. So this week I sewed together 8.5" rainbow blocks I made last year during the Rainbow Scrap Challenge to make a small quilt. I used 30 RSC scrap blocks for the quilt top.


And I sewed 23 RSC scrap blocks and seven solid 8.5" blocks cut from scraps and stash for the backing. It's quilted with vertical wavy lines and bound with white polka dots on black fabric from my stash. After a go in the washer and dryer, it finished at 39"x 48".


February's color is pink! I made three pink string 8.5" blocks to add to one I made last year. Two knitted dishcloths made it into the picture as well as a cute small wallet I won this week. Thearice of Pig Tales and Quilts drew my name! Yah!

To see what others made with their lovely pink scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.

Just catching up on RSC posts...I think you should also get a prize for that reversible quilt. What a great use of scraps. I knew all your various RSC blocks would come in handy this year.
