What great fun it was to quilt one of my favourite Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects!
I quilted curves (or half melon shapes) in all the plain alternate grey blocks, and that was really fun.
And for the pieced blocks I quilted a wavy line through the centres.
In the border I quilted wavy lines for a ribbon effect using 2 colours of grey. This photo shows me stitching along with the second line, making it up as I go along (no pre-marking) and quilting around pins when I'm stitching too fast to remove them!
I like the effect of this easy border quilting design and it's a perfect fit with the swirly background fabric.
This sampler quilt is from the 2018 RSC challenge called "Squared Away" hosted by Mari and Angela. My blocks are 5" and I set them on point to make the quilt bigger.
Finished size: 46.5" x 53.5"
I love this little owl block that was not part of the original sampler project, but is a block designed by Sally at The Objects of Design. She (the owl, not Sally!) flew onto the sampler quilt and insisted on staying :)
