Design Wall Monday 12/7/2020

I have been working on stitching together the many little (4" finished) blocks for one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts. These are the Stashbuster Square Dance blocks that I have been making all year. They are actually just Double 4-Patch blocks with a new name. I planned ahead and made each set of blocks using two adjacent colors in order to get the rainbow flow that you can see here.

I'm assembling my quilt top in sections. These blocks are joined into 5 columns of 10 blocks each, which is 1/3 the width and 1/2 the length of my quilt. The final setting will be 15 blocks across by 20 blocks long, a total of 300 little blocks. I have a long ways to go, and I have to be careful to keep them turned the right direction to make my design work out as planned. I put the blocks for half of the quilt up on my larger design wall, and as I get the blocks stitched into columns, I move them to the other design wall. The columns will get joined together once I complete a few more.

  4. That's good way to put together a large quilt, Julie. It's going to be SEW gorgeous!!

  5. It's a great quilt. I admire your forward planning too! Some of my RSC blocks need to be unpicked to fit into my layout!

  6. Your RSC quilts are always so bright and fun. This one is no exception. Looking forward to seeing it all completed.
