Rainbow year

Next up on my end-of-year UFO list was my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.

There were only 10 blocks, and they were big (16 inches), so it went together very quickly. The hardest part was figuring out the size of the setting triangles. I always err on the side of caution and make them a little bigger than they need to be.

But as you can see, once this one was together, it was nice and long, but narrow. Just before Christmas, I’d ordered some fabric for side borders, and happily, it arrived just in time to finish this before the new year.

Like Little Wishes, this is another big quilt, finishing up at 84″ x 92″.

Before I’d even finished all the blocks, I’d got a really cool backing fabric for it on sale.

I forgot to take a picture, but I’ve also got some rainbow stripe for the binding (leftover from my summer gnome quilt). I love it when a rainbow comes together!
