I finally made a decision on how to set my Fantasia blocks!
These are my blocks from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge last year over at SoScrappy. I put getting them assembled into a flimsy down for my #7 item on my Guild's UFO Challenge this year, and you guessed it - #7 was called for April! Coming up with a creative way to assemble these blocks quickly has been a real challenge for me! I really didn't want to just sash and border with chunks of fabric.... these blocks deserve something more than that!
I remember that Sew Kind of Wonderful used a great curved sashing for their Curve It Up QAL blocks last year, which I just loved. Since I used the Quick Curve Ruler to make the curves in these blocks, I thought that sashing treatment might look good with them. The first thing I did was draft it up in EQ7....
One of my biggest problems was what fabric to use to tie them all together. Rainbow blocks are a lot of fun, but no one fabric really works with all of them. In the end, I went with my usual favorite - black! A nice black with a white polka dot worked perfectly.
After some trial and error, I finally worked out a method to make a strip that looks like the original and works for me. Here is how it will look in the actual quilt....
And a close-up view.....
So now I just need to get busy stitching it up!
I may actually get this Guild Challenge project done in time for the next meeting after all :*)
What's on your Design Wall?
