Fabrics N Quilts Scrap Quilt Contest 2012 – Free Form Quilt WIP Report

I figured it was time to show you the four other scrap blocks I created for my Free Form Scrap Quilt since I’m getting to the point of the FINALY QUILT REVEAL!!  That’s right – I just have to hand stitch the binding on and I will have a quilt to photo and enter into the Contest!  I want to show you how the last four colors came together, I’ll do one post showing the ‘blending’ of the colors and finally – a reveal!  I won’t make you wait as long between posts as I did between the first two (or at least, I’ll try really hard not too).

2012-07-06 15.07.59 I know technically the rainbow is made up of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet but…I had to make a few decisions based on what scraps I actually had to work with and the number of spaces I needed to fill on the quilt (9 – with one being the black/white center).  My next color was turquoise or aqua or teal or whatever you want to call it.  Above is a picture of my scrap bin.  2012-07-06 21.44.43

And here is how the block started.

2012-07-06 21.44.34Next up – BLUE!  I have LOTS of blue scraps so this one went together quite easily…  2012-07-06 22.38.28 Here’s how the block started.2012-07-09 14.23.53Next is my purple/violet section.  I didn’t feel like I had a lot to work with here but I think I still made it happen…  2012-07-09 15.14.18Here is the block!  2012-07-09 15.31.42 And lastly – I put together a pink block.  It was honestly difficult to decide exactly how I wanted to break the colors up but pink was a pretty easy decision.  2012-07-09 15.52.05

I knew that if I added in a pink block that at the very least my daughter, Cedi, would like the quilt :)   2012-07-09 15.51.59

And here’s a picture of the nine blocks up on my design wall.   At this point I thought I was close to the end.  Little did I know just how much time the ‘blending’ would take…stay tuned…
