RSC Finished Projects Linky Party!

Angela at SoScrappy is hosting the first-ever special linkup for finished Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects!  I have loved this fun monthly challenge since I first began reading blogs, and when I started my own blog, Angela's party was among the first I participated in.  When I saw her post to link up our finishes, I had so much fun thinking back on the wonderful quilts I have today because of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!!

Soul Searching is my latest RSC finish .....


I am still putting the last binding stitches on this quilt!  Rocky is not being particularly helpful ...


He says it is after 9pm and he is OFF DUTY!!!!  He also says I should hand-stitch down all my bindings because it suits him to curl up in them while we watch tv in the evenings LOL!  Do you like that bold backing fabric?


I had a tough time choosing the backing fabric, but eventually this won out.  I loved the primarily black as opposed to the primarily white prints on the front.  And those colorful squares in each bloom are perfectly understated and fantastic!

I shared a few photos of the quilting in my last post, but here they are again...



The quilt laid on the guest bed for a week or so waiting for me to get around to trimming it.  I noticed Rocky napping in there one day and I have a sneaking suspicion he may have gotten a little impatient and tried to help me out....


I chose to use a lot of scrappy white-on-black fabrics pulled from my 2-1/2" strip bin (then trimmed down to 2-1/4"), as well as my black scraps bin, before cutting a strip from some of my fat quarters.... probably 20 fabrics in all.


Rocky had a ball at this stage of the game!  He loves those long strings of fabric!!!  I took a picture of him trying to run off with the string but it didn't take very well :(


I loved this binding choice from the moment I began stitching it down!


Of course, two of the joinings just had to work out to fall on a corner!  


I left this one because it was just to one side of the actual corner and with a little pushing and shoving it will be fine.

Sending a SPECIAL THANKS to Angela at SoScrappy for the beautiful quilts we've finished over the years because of your Rainbow Scrap Challenges!  It's been a blast and I've made some really good friends all over the world from participating in this linky.  Looking forward to another fun year of playing in the rainbows....



Hugs & Blessings

Teresa

  4. Fabulous finish, especially with all the encouragement and help from your buddy Rocky! And don't binding seams ALWAYS fall on at least one corner of every quilt? I thought that was one of the unwritten quilting rules we had to follow lol!

  7. It seems like a seam ends at a corner at least one a quilt...I think, what's the odds but it's happens a lot. Love your binding choice and the quilt!

  17. Teresa. Your Soul Searching is beautiful and I do love your backing fabric. That took a lot less time than the way I did mine. Love that Rocky is still helping you in the sewing room. He is a real trouper.
