Rainbow Scrap Challenge Top - Snails Tail

I have to thank Nancy O. from up in Vermont for the inspiration on this one. She submitted a colorful snails tail quilt to the quilt show a few years ago and I knew someday I would make one. This year it was a great time to make a couple blocks each month with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I added another two blocks for an even 24 blocks and now have a nice 4x6 setting for a wonderful quilt top that measures 48x72 inches. A perfect throw size as is. I think this just needs some nice quilting of swirly loops and a scrappy binding to finish it off. I got the pattern here.

Head on over to SoScrappy on Saturday and see what other wonderful quilts are being finished off in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this week.

  9. Oh, Deb, that was an excellent idea for the RSC and turned out so cute. Waiting to see what you do in 2014 to top that!
