I am happy to report that not only did I receive the thread to finish up my secret sewing project in time, but I finished a second secret sewing project this past weekend AND I have managed to have fun and make more progress on the Rainbow Scrap Quilt! Last week I sewed up the pinks and reds from my scrap bin into improv color blocks. Since then I have gone through my orange and yellow scraps.
I am really excited by how the blocks are coming together. If sewn together, the pieces would currently be 44.5-inches wide by 40-inches tall, which is much bigger than I was anticipating I would be able to do with the scraps I had. I have a pretty good selection of green and teal, less blue, and still less purple, so we’ll see how far I can stretch the scraps as I continue.
What would you think of adding a neutral sashing around the blocks, or should I just piece them together? Another idea I am playing with would be to add in LV / neutral blocks here on an angle before piecing the cool colors of the rainbow scrap quilt.
