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 :)

This is a really sweet finish, Kathy.
Your little owl doesn’t give a hoot if people don’t think he fits in! He’s staying! Great little quilt!
Congratulations on your finish! I love the gray fabric in between the rainbow blocks, and your quilting looks great. This was one of my favorite RSC projects, too!
It's beautiful. Congrats on your March finish. I LOVE that the owl joined the group of blocks. The grey fabric is perfect for this setting. Nicely done!
Your quilt looks fabulous, Kathy. I love the gray swirl fabric and your quilting design is perfect. I absolutely love the owl block. He immediately made me smile. Have a beautiful day, Kathy.
A beautiful finish. It's true, good things are worth waiting for.
Oh, Kathy -- the swirly gray setting squares are ideal for showing off the RSC blocks! It turned out very well. Congratulations on a fine finish.
Squared Away was one of my favorite RSC projects! Congrats on your great finish! Love the border quilting...quick, fun, and easy to do! I need to remember this! :)
I love that sneaky owl!
(And now you've got me wondering where I put my Squared Away blocks...)
Such a cute quilt and love the fabric you used in the alternate square. That little owl looks right at home in this quilt...watching over all the blocks!
wonderful finish, congratulations
I made the owl, too, and it's one of my favorite blocks from that year. I finished the blocks and may have even sewn them into a flimsy, but I know it's not quilted.
Congrats on your Rainbow Scrap Challenge UFO finish, Kathy!! What fun!!!
A very fun and pretty finish! I'm still trying to figure out how to set my blocks from that challenge. Yours turned out beautifully. The border quilting motif does work really well. Congrats!
Your finished quilt is beautiful! I love the alternate block fabric you chose. Perfect with the quilting in the border. I just finished the binding on my squared away on Thursday night. Such fun to see yours getting finished up as well.
Congrats on the finish. Love it.
