Rainbow Scrap (Stash) Challenge 2014 - Finale!

I know this is a little early in the week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge postings, but I was afraid with Christmas on Thursday, the week would get away from me and I would not be able to post my Rainbow Scrap Challenge finale!  This Saturday will be the last Saturday in December and the last chance to share our final quilts from this year-long challenge. Yay!! ... and of course since I rarely get anything done ahead of time (with the exception of this post) I will be right on schedule (I hope) with my link up to Angela's So Scrappy linky party on Saturday.  So without further ado........ (drumroll).
You have no idea how impressed I am with myself that I got these blocks sewn together ... and ahead of the final deadline for posting.  I am feeling very rightous about now. :-)  This is were the wheels usually fall off for me and projects end up in piles of finished, but unassembled blocks. 
I actually started the layout and planning on this weeks ago.  Of course no design work can be done without my assistant... whether I want her help or not.
She's very good at block rearranging.
This went on for quite awhile......
Until finally she was exhausted... In the process she was able to spread a nice coating of cat fur on each block. I am sure I need to clean my bobbin case from all the cat hair on the blocks. :-)
The fun continued after the photos of the completed top. <sigh>

Thank you to Angela at So Scrappy for organizing and hosting this wonderful challenge.  Please stop by her blog to see all the other beautiful rainbow quilts made this year.  And if you are interested, a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge will start next month!

In the mean time... enjoy your Christmas with family and friends.  Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy Stitching!



  1. Oh Deb! Your quilt is beautiful!!! You've done a great job of moving the colors just right - they flow!
