Thanks for coming over to my blog from the Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I’m Tisha of Quiltytherapy. Sewing is my therapy and the only creative outlet I’m good at. Unless stick figures can be a creative outlet, ha! Making quilts from scraps and my stash is what I strive for. Scrappy Unicorn Rainbow Sprinkles is a combination of scraps and pieces from my stash.
It’s hard to truly have a favorite quilt, but this one is in the top 10 that I have created. It is still for sale on Etsy here.
The center blocks are paper pieced using scraps from my guild members. Center triangles are trimmings from Lindsay’s quilt she made during our Winter Retreat. Erika and Lisa brought bins of scraps that they let us raid. I had pulled some scraps together in this color palette before the retreat but their generousity rounded out my collection.
While I wanted to make the entire quilt out of the blocks, they started to look too similar. In my stash was a bolt of Kona Robin’s Egg blue that really brought it all together.
Look for a tutorial on paper piecing these scrappy blocks to make your own version.
This was the second time I ever quilted the organic wavy lines. It created so much crinkle once it was washed. The purple polka dot binding is perfection. As I noted in my original post about this quilt, I hope it leaves behind a trail of rainbow sprinkles wherever this quilt goes.
