Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Scrappy Rainbow Unicorn Sprinkles

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.

  4. Great scrapy quilt! I love to make scrappy blocks like that too. Lots of color and variety and fun to sew! I like the wavey quilting too. I like to use that kind of relaxed wavey allover design. Good compliment to all the angles in the top. cheers

  5. Love the scrappy quilt.

  6. Great use of scraps! The stitching was a perfect touch!

  7. I often think that spending a lot of effort on the edges of the quilt, which just get draped down the sides of the bed, is less than efficient. Your use of the blue solid draws the eye to really look at the blocks rather than them turning into messy background. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I absolutely LOVE your wavy organic line quilting!! Nice job on using fabric scraps in your quilt.

  9. This looks like a fun quilt to make. I’ll have to watch for the tutorial. I like the way you incorporated the border color into the blocks in the center too.

  10. I love how you quilt with the materials you have, I so agree with this ethos!! The blue border shows it of fabric beautifully:)

  11. Lovely scrap quilt and I really like the big aqua borders! Well done!
