A Rainbow Scrap Finish

Throughout 2017, for a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, I made these Maple Leaf blocks with matching Nine Patches.


Late in the summer, I decided to take the "Autumn" colored blocks and turn them into this tablerunner.  I really love how this turned out, and I know I'll be using it again when summer turns to fall this year!


But... that left me with these Spring-themed blocks to do something with this year, and March seemed like a good month to use them up!


They needed something in the center, so I stitched up this flower block, inspired by the adorable Spring tablerunners that Vicki from Vicki's Crafts and Quilting has been making.  Thanks, Vicki!


After quilting this top to a piece of batting - 


it turned into a fun, scrappy pillow that goes with another RSC project you might recognize!


In fact, these two projects share some of the same scraps!  

Linking up with SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!

  3. I was feeling kinda in a funk this morning, but you but a smile on my face. First I just liked your leaves in the square and I thought I wonder what Diane will put in the middle. And then I scrolled down and saw the flower-very cool!! I love how it came out and then it's a pillow, such fun:)
