Scrappy Rainbow Double Irish Chain Quilt Progress

I got started on this quilt about a year ago as part of Scrap Happy Saturday on the So Scrappy Blog HERE.   Each month there is a different color of scraps to focus on.  The color for April is Aqua.  So if you have lots of scraps, this might be a good way for you to use them.

These blocks are just laid out on the bed so that I can check the progress.  I always love how a pattern comes to life once you lay the blocks out together.

I would love to quilt some kind of special design in each of the white areas, maybe like THIS or THIS

Here are some of the different colored blocks.

Sometimes I have worked on the quilt as a leaders and enders project.  Other times it has been the main project.  I only need to make six more blocks in lavender.  I have already sewn some of the blocks together in rows, so it won't be too long before it will be a completed quilt top.

I'm playing around with ideas for quilts for three of my grandchildren.  They are 2 brothers and their sister, who lost their quilts in the house fire.  I'm planning to do similar, but in different colors, twin size quilts for them.

A good part of the enjoyment in quilting is in the planning!
