Rainbow Scrap Challenge Star Quilt finished!

A collection of scraps, sewn together into blocks each month in nominated Rainbow Scrap Challenge colours - whats not to love about this beauty!
Yeah another finish in time for our exhibition at the end of May! 

This quilt measures 56 x 56" and is made up of 8" star blocks.  I cut up my accumulated scraps using my Go Cutter 2.5" square and half square triangle dies.  This is one of the blocks that I made with that combination of pieces.  Because you can get a triangle out of most scraps, I have ended up with a LOT of these star blocks.
This year I havent sewn a single new block for RSC, which makes me sad.  However I did make this top in January, during the heat of summer and it has been waiting to be quilted ever since.

In the end I gave it to my long arm quilting friend Vicki Jenkin because I knew I was running out of time to quilt it myself.  And I was very aware that lots of the intersections were very lumpy from so many seams...sorry Vicki!
So while I have been finishing minis quilts and sewing hanging sleeves ready for our show, Vicki has finished this quilt for me, using a much loved all over pattern called Asti (like the bubbly wine I guess!) in a turquoise thread, which just makes the fun rainbow of colours come alive. I am really pleased with this quilt!
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. You deserve to be pleased and very proud of this quilt! It is beautiful! Glad you got it finished before show time. Your piecing looks perfect to me, and the quilting does too. Great job by both of you! ---"Love"

  2. What a gorgeous quilt! It makes me want to do a rainbow scrap quilt.
