Pat Sloan had another fun mystery QA this year. It's called Vacation Time. You can see other participants' quilts and quilt tops on Pat Sloan's blog here.
My plan for my quilt was to just use scraps. Each month I used the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 (RSC15) for the main color and then the RSC15 color for the previous month for the background color. What a gorgeous Ohio fall day for this evening photo.
I arranged the blocks in the same way that Pat Sloan did for her finished layout. (I don't like trying to figure out where each block needs to go by myself.) I threw caution to the wind and didn't worry about where the colors would end. I didn't put on my special decoder glasses (that came with one of my kid's toys) to check for value.
When I got to the first border, I picked something out of the Christmas print bin (because of the red/green color contrast.) I LOVE how the stripes in the 1" border seems to pull things together. I did add an additional 3.5" border of another fabric that could not be sorted by color. I added this border because I longarm the quilts myself and I am not a fan of 1" borders on the edge.
My plan is to quilt it with a Circle Lord giant template (not decided yet). I'm actually considering using my Birdy template just because it's new and I need practice using it. Not sure yet...
But then I thought the Birdy quilting may be just a little too much and am highly considering Circle Lord Loopys:
