It's a flimsy!
This quilt was released as a free FreeSpirit pattern called Garden Mosaic. I used just rainbow colors so changed the name to suit my quilt.
This quilt has also lovingly been referred to as Totally Demented by Sally who previously finished a quilt top maybe because she used bat wings and eye of newt, and Gayle , the original temptress who sent us a link with photo of the quilt and who still has a work in process. Thanks, Gayle!
The Totally Demented Garden Mosaic with Fractured Rainbows consists of 2048 two inch unfinished HSTs.
At the beginning of the process I didn't really have many 2 inch scraps ready to use. That's not a size I usually save in a bin because I have made very few quilts that use that size of pieces. So I went through my scrap chunks to find scraps to use. I think that took me longer to sort and cut scraps than to actually make all the HSTs. I used an Easy Angle ruler to cut pieces for my HSTs. I used muslin as the neutral. I was going to use scrappy neutrals but when I skimmed the instructions I saw that it required 7.5 yards (if I remember correctly) of background fabric I decided I didn't want to use my quickly dwindling supply of neutrals on such small pieces so I used muslin that I had on hand instead.
My OMG (One Monthly Goal) for September was to finish up sewing together the rows on eight 24 inch blocks. I mentioned in that post that I'd give myself a smiley face bonus if I completed the top.
I really wasn't sure I could make this one!
