One Rainbow Flimsy

I've been on a roll this week, sewing blocks together, and then rows, to finish up my first quilt top made from Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016 blocks.  This has been my first year participating in the RSC, and I have loved it!  Since I like to work on more than one project at a time, it works out perfectly to just have a few blocks to make each week.  Then, here comes October, and I have a whole lap sized quilt ready to go!

So, here is my RSC 16 patch quilt top:


This morning I was trying different shots to see what would show it off the best!  How about as a picnic quilt?

Or on my dining room table?



An artistic shot!


I love scrappy quilts so much, and this one is a perfect example of why.  It's full of my favorite fabrics - scraps from friends, and old projects, and then newer pieces that I've collected here and there.




I love them all!  Now this flimsy goes into my queue to be basted together and quilted.  I'm not sure who this quilt is going to belong to in the end, but I have sure enjoyed making it!

Linking up to ScrapHappy Saturday at So Scrappy with all of the Rainbow Scrap Quilters.
