Bring on Spring - SCRAPtastic - Project Quilting Season 9, Project 6

SCRAPtastic is the sixth and final challenge of 
for
Project Quilting.

My entry is
Bring on Spring



She announces a challenge and you have one week to create something quilty.
Prizes can be won and it's a great way to meet new blogging friends.


It wouldn't be Project Quilting without at least one project coming down to the last minute and this is the ONE.  Life happens sometimes...

The project is due at noon and the final stitch went in at 11:10.
Just enough time to photo and post.  Man is my heart pounding...

This is plan "B" for the challenge.  
There is a quilt in process that just wasn't going to be finished on time, so in true Project Quilting fashion, I picked up the scraps from that quilt and made this wall hanging.

Here are some process pictures.

I made a quilt canvas with a white middle 
and
 fabulous 2" scraps from Tula Pink's All Stars collection - "LOVE!"

I used a square from each fabric in the fat quarter bundle with the exception of 3  so I know there are at least 15 different fabrics.
 (I'm a rule follower and the challenge said to use at least 12 different fabrics - lol)


I enjoyed working backwards so much on a previous challenge, I decided to do it on this quilt too.
Plus it's great practice in placement with the preloaded designs on the Handi Quilter.
I decided on a flower design and quilted it with 2 layers of fleece 
between the top and back for lots of dimension.

Here's the back to show more of the quilting detail.
 I'm working on placement of blank space, but found I had a lot of threads to tuck with this design. I'm excited to try more though.


Next, I added color to the quilting by using fabric markers.


This has become one of my favorite "new to me" things to do.
