I haven't had a finished quilt in quite awhile! Just my pages in my Art Journal challenge and they are a bit behind too! Life has been busy!
So I'm so excited to share my finished quilt from the 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I really love how this quilt turned out.
The pattern is called Russian Rubix by April Rosenthal for Prairie Grass Patterns. I just fell in love with this pattern. It was so fun to make. I'm kind of a math geek so I was intrigued by how April figure how to work this pattern.
The 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge (see my side bar) only included 11 colors so I added 5 additional colors so the quilt finished with 16 different colored rings.
I added 3" borders to frame the quilt and give it a bigger dimension. This quilt finished at approx. 48" square.
At first I debated making 2 of each color but changed my mind. I pieced the extra orange block on the back.
I love the scrappiness of this quilt. It is fun to look at all the different fabrics pieces and remember where they came from or were used before. The binding was also made with pieces from each color in the quilt.
Bonus ~ the backing is also from my stash!
I quilted each octagon with a pinwheel design using thread that matched the color of the ring. In the negative space, I FMQ part of a design I found online. I adjusted the design to fit the inside of each ring. The border was straight line quilted in 1/2" rows. Hope you like it!
