Over the weekend I appliqued the last of the circle blocks that I have been making for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge all throughout 2015. It was bittersweet when I finished that final block, but it was also exciting because it meant I could start joining the blocks together into a top.
My usual method of joining blocks is to do them in sections rather than big long rows, especially when the blocks are set on point. For this quilt I started with a 5x5 grouping at the center of the quilt. The section at the lower right also has the blocks stitched together. I am currently working on the upper left section.

I am very eager to get this quilt top put together. I haven't decided yet if I will add a border or not. If I do, it will be black and white. I will audition some options after the center is done.
I will be sharing with the following linky parties.:
