It turned out great!  And, what fun and happy colors you picked!

I know that sitting in that chair and sewing is heaven for you, bongirl5!

Love it!

I think that you chose a nice simple style to let the fabric do all the talking!

It is lovely...the colors are fabulous and you did add your own touch with the ribbon trim...it would be so cute with a summer sweater set...I would pick white, but that blue is also striking!

Well done!

I am so glad you are sharing your experience! So far, I have just cut the legs of the jeans open and set things in piles all over the floor!

This is a perfect project to feel like I am using up the jeans that are too nice to throw out but not nice enough to wear out!  Plus, a friend of mine wants a quilt that her daughter can use on picnics...these seems perfect...

Thank you so much for saving me hours of time and aggravation...and you better do another one...I need to be kicked in the butt to get it done! Cheesy

These are so cute!

I love it when function is fun!

Thanks, TSM!

I was thinking of you when I saw those rainbow blocks!  I do think they would be right up your alley, TSM!  I am a bit disappointed that so many of my scraps are just too bright (is there such a thing really? Cheesy)...I printed out the list of solids because I think Joann's is having a sale this week on Kona cottons...

I think I might just raid my fat quarters for this one...I already have those in tubs by color...and fat quarters are on sale--oops--this is the destash thread...

It was very hard for me to just let the randomness "happen"...I kept wanting to  color-coordinate each block...so I know I am going to LOVE doing the bottled rainbow quilt!  I am definitely sorting my scraps into colors this weekend! Cheesy

My hubs cannot look at the strip quilt without raising his eyebrows and saying" boy, is it bright"...meh...

skittlebub--I saw your post with your dandelion embroidery...I just love it...I can't wait to see the others you did...

Very vibrant. I love all your little squares. I should do something like that. Except I think I would get bored cutting out the squares and give up.

Yeah--I get bored very easily but now that I got the bulk of it done, I got a small waste basket to put in new scraps...when it gets full, I plan on doing it...I had three tall kitchen cans full of them when I started...NEVER AGAIN!

Also, it makes it easy if you have the proper quilting rulers and a sharp rotary cutter!

Thanks, scrappysue--I used the pattern in the link you gave!  I had no idea it was so easy to do!  It is like a trip back in time...I remember each piece of fabric and the quilt or project...the passport wallet I made batgirl, the tote bag I made bongirl5, the quilt I made for kittykill, etc. what a nice way to keep memories!

Thanks for the links and pics! Just what I need...one more quilt on my list of "to do"!

Well, here are the results of my destashing my scraps:

about 30 5 inch squares; 300 or so 3-1/2 inch squares; and 200 2 inch squares--I know it does not look like it!


and 12 16 squares of my strip quilt! two more rows to go--but I ran out of long strips and muslin! so, I guess I better get on with destashing more fabric! Cheesy

My strips are even in width down the whole strip but some are 3" fat, some 1" fat...I cut what I could...I used white muslin as the foundation so I could have white as the coordinating color...when I joined the blocks, I get a huge diamond shape...I will post it tonight even though it is far from finished! Cheesy

I have seen wonky strips, but I wanted to try the more uniform one first...I just finished a wonky cut quilt and am trying to do different things!

How big do you need the scraps to be?...you will see from my quilt tonight that I am a rainbow fabric person! Cheesy

Do you have a link to the bottled rainbow?  I am familiar with the tokyo subway quilt but not the bottled rainbow!
