And just like that, it is quilted! I love my computer-guided long arm (when it works).
I spent a few hours the past couple of days assembling the Bloom blocks with the sashing and adding the outer borders. (These Bloom quilt blocks were designed by Kim Brackett, from her Scrap Basket Beauties book.) The borders were not scraps, they were from yardage, but all the rest of the materials were scraps.
By Friday evening, I was ready to quilt the Bloom lap quilt for my Friday Night With Friends project. I quickly assembled the backing and I even pieced some leftover batting pieces, which I really hate doing, but I thought it was appropriate for a scrap project. I used Quilter's Dream 70-30 Blend because I had a fairly large chunk of it left over.
I quilted it with the Let Love Bloom 1 pantograph, designed by Christy Dillon. I guess given the name, it seemed appropriate. LOL
I will probably wait until the end of the month to finish the binding as I'd like to make a quilt label for it. I may as well see how many more quilts I can finish this month and then make all the labels at once.
This finishes one of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects! Next up, Flowers for Nana's Girl. I need four more blocks and a whole lot of sashing units.
