Once the columns were sewn together, I sliced and sewed back together more and more times. Each time, the scrappy effect grows.

I quilted this on a longarm with a tight loopy meander. I wanted a lot of quilting on this to make sure all of the seam allowances were sewn down really well.

|I added hanging corners to the back. See below for adding these corners.|
Did you participate in a challenge like this in your own guild? What did you make? I'd love to know!
Adding hanging pockets are sooper easy. Cut two squares from scraps, each about 5"x5". Press each square on the diagonal, wrong sides together. Before you bind the quilt, place a square in each top back corner, aligning top and side raw edges with the raw edges of the folded triangle. Baste the triangles in place, using 1/8" seam allowance. Then, bind your quilt as normal. The binding holds the corners in place, and you shouldn't need to remove the basting. Just slide a dowel rod slightly shorter than the width of your quilt into the pockets, and hang.
