One of the primary ways I sew scrap quilts is following along with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Every month our host Angela gives us a colour to focus on for that month. It's a great way to keep scraps organized and constantly being sewn into projects.
This month I am so happy to have finished one of my rainbow quilt tops - a waffle project (non edible!)
This project was inspired by Nann and I started sewing waffles in June 2020. This is the perfect project to use up 1.5" squares and strips.
There are a lot of seams in this quilt top which made pressing the blocks and rows a challenge.
And now for the age old question - does it need a border? It doesn't need to be bigger but does it need a frame?!?
Linking up to the weekly Rainbow Scrap Quilters party
That's so pretty, Kathy! Love how you've laid it out with darks flowing to lights and back again. I think it's perfect without a border!
I wasn't sure I liked that block but now that I see it in a quilt it's great, and a great scrapper! I'll keep this in mind for a future RSC. And I don't think it needs a border.
Love the look! A small border would help stabilize all the seams around the edges. Just a thought ...
This is so lovey--the only reason I can see for a little border is that it would make it easier to add binding--avoiding all those edges...
Anyway--this is so beautiful...I am thinking of doing a waffle, too
[but I am still waffling! hahaha]. Its either that or a lego-type one...
Did you enjoy the process on this one? Just wondering--if you are like me, certain blocks/quilts fall easily into your comfort zone and are fun to make...
Your top have just made me see these blocks with different eyes. OWO!!!
Love your top.
Your waffle block quilt is just yummy!!!! Such a great layout of your colourful blocks!
Either way - or a nice black border to stop all the colors. Hugs
Great quilt top. Love the way you have made the rainbow across the top.
I think it is perfect without a border also. The binding should frame it nicely.
Absolutely gorgeous! I love the rainbow gradation of colors across the quilt. No border needed.
If you use a dark border, maybe black, it will work as a frame without the added size or work. This quilt is great as it is!
Non-edible! You crack me up. It's lovely already but I would go with a border, black or white but IMHO needs to be peppered with little specks of colours. Enjoy! ;^)
So cheerful and gorgeous. Love it, Kathy
Lovely quilt, love the way you have organised the different coloured blocks . Don’t think it needs a border but I can see the sense of anchoring all the ends of the blocks with a dark narrow border as other people have suggested.
I really like your arrangement of blocks but I sure hope no one sees the back of mine LOL - great job
I love this top, Kathy! So much fun. And if it were me, I’d put a frame on it, but it’s just a personal preference.
Congrats on getting your Waffle blocks transformed into a quilt top, Kathy! Best of luck with the borders. That's never my favorite part of the process, but some quilts demand them.
Sweet! I love that it's called a waffle quilt!!! Great job!
