Twinklers: It's a Top! and an OMG!


Twinklers
60 x 78


I've been making these blocks, a few a month, for a couple of years as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project.  I used 2.5 inch scraps.  That's 1170 - 2.5 inch squares of scraps!!! 


These were randomly arranged. There's no design wall here.  (Grandma didn't have one either and she's the one that inspired me to quilt).  

In the process I noticed I was a little heavy on blue and brown blocks. 


I hope to get this completely finished this month. I'll be quilting it on my DSM.

I love this top, so bright and cheerful. Design walls are great, but most are nowhere near large enough to lay out a big quilt anyway. Grandma used her bed or the floor to lay out her quilts, and we can too!

It doesn't seem to heavy on any particular color to me. Just a fabulous collection of color and happiness!

What a happy quilt! Enjoy your twinkly quilting!
This is one of the things I love most about the rainbow scrap challenge - we make a few blocks a month and then suddenly there are enough for a quilt. It's almost like magic!

Another stellar (pun intended) finish! You go girl!, I love your Twinkler/friendship stars. And your wonderful Triangle Stars too. Next year I'll be doing a friendship star variation with my 2.5" scraps thanks to your influence. Cathy, do you ever sleep?

I am amazed at at how much you get done. I do well with the rainbow blocks until the garden work begins, but then I do make a lot of smaller quilts for our teams from church to take to Haiti.

Those are great blocks for the rainbiw scrap challenge! I'm going to put them on my list! They look like a great way to use up smaller squares.

What a lovely quilt Cathy. Congrats on getting all those little blocks into a top. Love it.

I find it interesting that you can place your blocks randomly but come up with something that looks so balanced and deliberate. Maybe it's a question of getting the right mix of blocks before you start? However you do it, the end result is very lovely.
