Rainbow Blocks and FMQ Challenge

      These Rainbow Challenge blocks from 2017 still need a border but I am happy with the progress.

I also spent time cutting up scraps into leader/ender kits for Carolina Chain blocks.  If I counted correctly, I have enough for a lap quilt.  

     If you are interested in learning or improving your free-motion quilting, I hope you have heard about Angela Walters’ Free-Motion Quilting Challenge that was introduced Monday, Feb. 12th.  Instead of using the free pattern that she offers, I had already started Jean Boyd’s “All Squared Up- A modern quilt design” lap quilt pattern.    I plan to use it to practice my quilting along with Angela. I enjoy Angela’s videos and look forward to quilting along with her. 

Hope you will consider joining the fun and enjoy time sewing or quilting.

I am linking up with Scrap Happy Saturday.  Check out what others are doing.


  1. Your rainbow quilt is a beauty! And Carolina chain is a favorite.....I was thinking about doing another one:)

  3. I love your rainbow quilt, beautiful stars and great mix of colors!

  4. The stars top shines. Love it but then I love anything scrappy and bright.

  5. Thanks for the tip about Angela's Challenge. It sounds like just the thing I need to get back into FMQ..

  6. Congrats! on assembling your RSC quilt top. Enjoy quilting along with Angela using that lovely top that you had ready!
