Rainbow Scrap Challenge - Red
Full of Wonder Remnants
I had been so busy working on Full of Wonder this week that I really did not give myself any time to pull out my red scraps. So last night as I was sitting in my sewing room mulling over what I might do for my challenge I saw the remnants that I had left from my Full of Wonder quilt top and lo and behold there was all that red border that I had removed! I grouped the leftovers that I had from making the blocks and took a picture...surely there must be a quilt top in there somewhere! I do have some leftover light teal fabric that I did not include in the picture. I don't have a concrete plan yet but I was thinking maybe an on-point layout and possibly somehow integrating some 4 patches - it will definitely change as I go along! As you can see I made different sizes of the flower block as a trial and it looks like I have settled on the medium sized one. I am making them using the stitch and flip method and I am double sewing the triangles so I will also have some pinwheels that may be incorporated.
The quilt design is mine but the block design is not - I saw them on the blog Cherry Red Quilter and they are from the book Simply Charming. I was so excited about designing/making this quilt that I had trouble sleeping last night. I just kept thinking about different ideas and layouts etc! I didn't get to work on it a lot today because I had errands to run and I had to go to the dentist - ugh.
