Multi-Colored Fabrics -- RSC17 Scrap Happy Saturday

This week I worked on adding multi-colored fabrics to my Garden Party quilt.  This pattern is designed by Bonnie Hunter and can be found in her latest book, Addicted to Scraps.  I have decided to try to make one row a week on this quilt -- and attach it to the quilt.
 
Here's spools, Christmas bulbs, rainbow music sheets, Monopoly money and calicos.

 
Here's another Christmas fabric, and more Monopoly money. 

 
Florals and dots and flowers...

 
70's looking Carpenter's star and some purple/orange/pink flowers...  Like Bonnie Hunter always says, if it's ugly fabric, you didn't cut it small enough.

I completed my RSC15 Sawtooth Sampler quilt this week.  You can read about the finish on yesterday's post.  Here's a picture of the 92" x 92" quilt:  LOVE the RSC!!!  Thanks, Angela.

  1. First, let me congratulate you on this gorgeous finish. Yes, I love it!! WOW. Love the use of aqua. I think this quilt wants to go to the beach for a picnic. Am I wrong? Second, your Garden Party blocks are so cute. I had to click on the picture to see the Monopoly money fabric. Haven't seen that one before. Too cute! ;^)

  4. Best of luck on your Garden Party goal and congrats on completing your 2015 RSC Quilt!!! LOVE that you chose to make it your own by adding non-rainbow alternate blocks. Changes the feel of the quilt considerably.

  7. Congrats on that awesome and BIG finish!

    And I think I've said it before but Garden Party was in a magazine before her book and I have it dog eared to make someday...probably sooner than later now that I see two of you RSC groupies making them. And what fun fabrics you have, my dear!
