Easy Breezy Quilt Top

I am so thrilled to share that my Easy Breezy quilt top is on the design wall! The layout is 12 blocks by 15 blocks for a total of 180 blocks. 

Easy Breezy was the July 2020 Quiltville leader-ender challenge and I loved every minute of making these blocks through covid times.

My blocks were cut and sewn following the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour of the month and the top was built bit by scrappy bit for a total of 2,160 pieces of fabric in this quilt. 

The blocks were delightful to sew and I enjoyed every minute of piecing this project. The colour work was also fun, figuring out how many more blocks to make in each colour to make the final quilt top kind of look like a scrappy rainbow.

Now the big question... does it need a border?

I love the transparency created by the flow of one color into another. Bravo!

I put borders on all my quilts. I feel it contains the pattern, in the same way a dog herds cattle into an ordered fashioned. With borders, one can see and enjoy each component of the quilt. Of course all if this is just my opinion.

IT'S GORGEOUS!! You did a great job with the color fading into the next colors. Wonderful job. I'd audition some fabrics but my guess is it's great just as it is.

What a wonderful top you created! I think it looks great, as is but if you want it a bit bigger go ahead with a border. It has been fun watching you create these blocks for this quilt.

I'd skip the borders unless you need bit bigger. Just remember to stay stitch the edges to keep your seams from popping open while you quit it.

Oh gosh, that's spectacular!

So pretty, Kathy! It only needs a border if you want it to have one.

Very pretty! Yes, a small border.
