I figured it was time to show you the four other scrap blocks I created for my Free Form Scrap Quilt since I’m getting to the point of the FINALY QUILT REVEAL!! That’s right – I just have to hand stitch the binding on and I will have a quilt to photo and enter into the Contest! I want to show you how the last four colors came together, I’ll do one post showing the ‘blending’ of the colors and finally – a reveal! I won’t make you wait as long between posts as I did between the first two (or at least, I’ll try really hard not too).
I know technically the rainbow is made up of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet but…I had to make a few decisions based on what scraps I actually had to work with and the number of spaces I needed to fill on the quilt (9 – with one being the black/white center). My next color was turquoise or aqua or teal or whatever you want to call it. Above is a picture of my scrap bin.
And here is how the block started.
Next up – BLUE! I have LOTS of blue scraps so this one went together quite easily… Here’s how the block started.Next is my purple/violet section. I didn’t feel like I had a lot to work with here but I think I still made it happen… Here is the block! And lastly – I put together a pink block. It was honestly difficult to decide exactly how I wanted to break the colors up but pink was a pretty easy decision.
I knew that if I added in a pink block that at the very least my daughter, Cedi, would like the quilt
And here’s a picture of the nine blocks up on my design wall. At this point I thought I was close to the end. Little did I know just how much time the ‘blending’ would take…stay tuned…
