Rainbow Orbs Finally Finished!!

It is with great personal fanfare (LOL) that I announce the finish of my Rainbow Orbs quilt!  It’s been a year in the making, and I am so thrilled to have finished it.  This is my finish for the 2015 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. It was a blast, and I can hardly wait to start some projects for 2016.


Please excuse the pictures; I just threw it on the bed and did not stage anything.  I am planning to take some formal pictures with closeups of some of the quilting, etc.


There are 30 18” blocks, and the quilt finishes at 80x96”  The batting is Hobbs 80/20, and I quilted it with loopy lines, with occasional hearts interspersed. Again, I will show that, plus the backing, etc. in a future post when we take the formal pix. Oh, and the binding is a black and white strip (Michael Miller Clown Stripe), which was, to me, the perfect choice.


Come and see what others are doing and/or have finished with their scraps this year; join us at So Scrappy for Scrap Happy Saturday!

This finish completes Goal #2 of my 2015 4th Quarter Finish Along goals.

I will be finishing up the Rainbow Orbs shams this week; just need to sew the backs on. They are another of my Finish Along goals for this quarter. As well, I will get the polka dot dust ruffle on and get some final pictures of the ensemble on the bed.

Until next time,
Cathy maroon

Congratulations! This block has been on my "maybe" list for a while. You might have just pushed it over the edge for me for next year. Your colors are beautiful, and i love the background fabrics. So much fun.

This is beautiful, simply beautiful. I always have such high hopes for my scraps but never seem to get there. Visiting as part of the 2015 FAL Cheerleading Team. Thanks for participating in the 2015 FAL.
