Welcome to week 1 of the Scrappy Rainbow Quilt-a-long!
I may be the only one doing it, but that's ok! ;)
I know some of you are joining in, and some of you may do so later when you have some time.
Either way, I will document everything as I go, just in case!
I have so many scrap pieces of fabric that I'm using only scraps from my stash.
Each block will measure 12" x 12", and there will be 30 blocks all together.
(If you don't have a large fabric selection but still want to make the quilt, you will need 30 pieces of fabric cut to the same size 12" x 12".)
The first thing you need to do is sort through your fabrics and divide them into five different piles:
1. pinks and reds
2. oranges and yellows
4. blues and turquoise
5. purple and lavender
We will me making six of each, for a total of 30 blocks. It will be sashed and will end up being a twin size quilt.
Get your supplies ready:
- rotary matte and cutter
- fabrics divided up
- sewing machine
- small scissors
- iron and ironing board
(This is all you will need to get started)
Once we are nearing the block completion, I will tell you what else you will need to finish it up.
I will be back next week for block construction. :)
Have fun playing with all your colorful fabric!
If you have any questions, I will answer them in the comments.
