Rainbow Baby Quilt

36" x 40"

Oh what fun this rainbow quilt is! And as a bonus, every fabric in this quilt, except the background is from scraps! The HST's are made from 5" squares from my scrap bins. Even the back is made from some scraps. 

I had this gray fabric left over from a quilt a made a few weeks ago. It was a bit short so I thought a rainbow strip would be great, but I didn't want to make one. Then I remembered I had some strips left from the bargello quilt I finished. I took out a few pieces and stitched it back together. It was perfect for the back of this quilt. Don't you just love it when a quilt comes together!

The 2.5" strip bins are the last ones left to tackle. Several colors are getting to the overflow stage so i need to make a scrappy quilt from those next. I have really enjoyed making a few quilts with my scraps this year. I think this needs to be something I do at the beginning of every year.

Linking with Busy Hands Quilts.


  1. Adorable baby quilt. And I love the strip of colors in the backing.

  2. Such a pretty quilt. I love the simple layout.

  3. You are doing great using your scraps, and having a set time to do that may be a good idea. Love the quilt and backing of course!
