Sometimes I have a quilt idea in my head and I miraculously manage to execute it exactly how I was thinking, without making adjustments along the way. This is one of those times. It took some planning but I did it.
This quilt utilizes two of my favorite things: rainbow colors and scraps. Yes, your read that right, this is actually a scrap quilt.
Every piece of fabric, minus the purple Tula Pink Fairy Dust fabric, is all scraps.
I think many of us quilters have white fabric laying around, and then it was only a matter of digging through my scrap bag to pull ROYGBIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet) colors to get the rainbow look. This is why I save small scraps! For projects like this. Plus, I hate wasting fabric so I always have a healthy scrap bag ready to go.
I am planning to write a whole blog post about my scrap quilting process, which I kinda take pride in because I have a philosophy of leaving no scrap behind. That blog post is coming in the near future, but back to this quilt.
The only fabric I had to buy was the Tula Pink Fairy Dust, which I wanted to get anyway. From the minute I saw it I knew I had to have it, and I think it is perfect for this quilt.
Tula has since come out with more color options for Fairy Dust, and so many of them would work, but I’m partial to the purple.
With all of the colors happening on the front, I need to start thinking about the back. Not sure which direction I’m going to go yet, but I feel like it needs to be Tula on the back as well. Thoughts?
