Since I finished my veterans and second QOV top this past weekend at the CSQ monthly sewing retreat, it was time to start something new and that means the Rainbow Quilt!
Here are the fabrics. I'm starting with 1/2 yard each of the Color Wheel Gradients (Warm and Cool) and 8 Stash Packs (Color Wheel, Color Party, Happy Hour, Sunset, Orangeade, Grape Jam, Citrus and Red Letter Day). I'll add some fabrics from my stash (especially blues and greens) and maybe a Color Wheel Medium pack. I felt like I needed some guidance on the size and set out to find an eventual owner for the quilt. My nephew is getting married next month and they just moved into their first house so I sent Ashley (his fiance) a photo of the fabrics to see if she liked them. She does and now I have my directive. I'll be making a king size!
Here are the first 20 blocks for what will is tentatively being called Ashley's Rainbow. Only 190 more to go plus 58 border blocks! I should make reasonably quick progress. I cut and sewed these in one afternoon. This will be my CSQ monthly retreat project for a few months. I already love it.
Some day it will grow up and look like this.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
