Streak of Lightning
It's a flimsy!
60 x 72
It will be a donation quilt when finished.
A lot of times I only use rainbow colors in my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. That leaves me with scraps in a few other colors without a project. In 2017 I made some pink and blue-green HSTs to use those colors of scraps. In 2018 I made more HSTs until I ran out of blue-green scraps and then joined them together into blocks. This year I found more aqua and pink scraps and made 11 more blocks and joined them for a flimsy.
I don't have a design wall so just randomly sew blocks together. Most of the time that works well with small scrappy blocks but sometimes not so well with larger blocks. Above was how the flimsy looked when I first sewed blocks together. I didn't like all that dark blue-green in the middle so took off the bottom three rows and sewed them back on as the top three rows. That left more of the same value of blue-green together in the body of the quilt and I liked that a little better.
I was thinking that this was close to a twin sized quilt but now that I'm blogging about it I think I am a row short. I think a twin quilt would be better at 84 inches in length instead of 72 inches. I think I'll have to find more pink and blue-green scraps for 45 more HSTs - one more row.
