RSC 18 finished top

I've finished my top for this year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge organised by Angela and Mari. These kind ladies posted one pattern and one colour each month from January to October and a load of quilters round the world made some blocks using the pattern and the colour of the month.

I made two ten-inch blocks each month and this is the result:


If you read my post last week you may see that I followed the advice of a number of readers and added sashing and cornerstones around the outside. This is it now - no borders - and I shall be quilting it in February during a long-arm course. I don't have a long-arm machine; I don't have the space for a long-arm machine, but have discovered a long-armer who is willing to teach me how to use hers! Unfortunately she is at present changing her business from a physical shop to an online one and moving to other premises. Hence the delay.


A close-up of my favourite fabric in this quilt: bicycles. I'm afraid I don't know the name of the designer.

Lovely quilt top, Marly. What fun to be able to learn how to use a long-arm machine and quilt your own quilts. Lucky you! Looking forward to see lots of pictures of your effort on the long-arm machine. Enjoy! ;^)

What a great quilt top. So lovely that you are going to be able to learn long arm quilting without having to invest the space and money to have one of your own. Looking forward to seeing the finished project in February.

Your RSC Sampler will be SEW cheerful! Best of luck with learning to use the longarm quilting machine.

Your top is beautiful, Marly! I do like the sashing and cornerstones going all the way around the outside. The bicycle fabric is so much fun!

Beautiful work! Learning to longarm sounds like challenging but great fun!

Yahoo! This will make a great quilt to practice long arming. Can't wait to see it all done.

I love how you did the sashing and cornerstones. Have fun with your longarming experience. It's frustrating and rewarding all in one big swoop. Enjoy the process.

Congratulations on a super finished top! Good luck with the long arm quilting.

great job getting your top completed and all ready for quilting. I don't think it needs a border at all. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!
