Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017 was hosted by soscrappy. Each month, we worked with a color--at the end of the year, I put my blocks together. Here is the result.

66" x 92"






Backing and binding (detail)





One of the months, we were to use multi-colored scraps. Because I wanted to stick with single colors in my Rainbow quilt, I used that month to create this quilt which I called Stringing Beads.

Instructions

 
During the month when we were to use neutrals, I worked on a couple of other projects. (I had used neutral strings each month in my rainbow-colored blocks.) One was my leader/ender project, and the other was a string quilt (as yet unfinished) which I call Boxes of Strings. I'll post instructions for it when I finish!

Boxes of Strings



Thanks so much to soscrappy for hosting this challenge.

    1. It was fun to make as well! Can't say that it made much of a dent in my scraps, though. Thanks for visiting.

  9. Your stripy rainbow turned out so nice. I've never seen the Stringing Beads block or the last one before. Both of them are striking, especially with the dark red as well as the black contrasts. Keep up the good work!

  10. Great finish on your 2017 RSC quilt! And your other additional string projects look amazing! Using strings for a 3-D box block was an inspired idea!

  12. I must be the only person in the world that has not done a string quilt yet. Yours are wonderful.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures, it is always great fun to see what others are doing.

  13. Such fun scrappy and beautiful quilts. I love the idea of a strip quilt that has lots of solid areas. It creates an entirely different design that is very modern.
