Rainbow Scrap Challenge ... and.... Finished ( or not) Friday

 I have to tell you, I am kinda proud of myself today....

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.. and this year - even before the end of the year... 

I AM FINISHED... as in it is quilted, and get this.... are you ready??? Bound!   there were no earthquakes or hurricanes that day either.... so it's all good right?

Are you ready to see my creation?

First - you should know that these are ALL Hand-dyes from Colorways by Vicki  because when you drool over the colors - you too... can have your own.....


okay - ready for real this time?


I am just in love with this one... I used Vicki's Hand dyes - and they stitch like butter.... so smooth..

and I used Quilter Dream Puff - as that is my most favorite batting in the world for quilts that I am going to keep.... oh!!! Maybe ... it is my signature batting.... Oh ya - I am going to call it that!!




And then I used a really pretty pink Flannel on the back - of which I did not take a photo. But in my household - if I put Pink on the back... it is mine... all mine..... 

And I quilted it with fun funky feathers and .... I love it.. I was not even horribly sad when the evening temp was -4.... I did my chores, and came inside and me and Puppy snuggled right away!!



Okey dokey - enough bragging about me!! Show me what you have been up to!!

Remember - PLEASE provide the direct link to your post - not to your blog, but to the actual post.

The bright colors on your hour glass blocks are eye catching and lovely. Very cheery and snuggly with the flannel backing. Great job!

Kat Scribner said...

Oh yes, your quilt is gorgeous, love the design lines and pink on the back in a house full of men is just clever! lol I love the RSC program too but have many to finish as there are so many possibilities to use it in and then i start them. Happy Friday. For me, every day is happy day when you're retired.

Oh this is gorgeous Alycia! I am hoping to get one of my two done by the end of the year. Those hand dyes - be still my heart! Love the quilting motif too.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the setting! I always think 'YES! I want to do the rainbow scrap challenge! but then I can never decide on a block to make.' Yours turned out awesome!!

You are kinda proud? I am kinda bowled over. OK, no. I am completely bowled over. So pretty. Love it.

Now you've done it - caused me to want to make lots and lots of hourglass blocks for next year's RSC. I love this quilt.

Snowcatcher said...

My goodness, what bright colors! If this quilt doesn't brighten your day, nothing will!!! Love that you get to keep anything with a pink back... ;)

Hand dyed fabric AND a a bit of movement with the zig zag colors arrangement!!!! Just to much fun!

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

Well done! Well done!! This is beautiful. The colours are amazing.

So bright and cheerful for the winter. Pets are great for snuggling with in the winter time, except for those cold noses.
