Here is my block. It is also a green block - I hope you get enough of the other colours! It was very nearly a red one but green won. It was so simple to make, yet looks so effective. This quilt is going to be lovely.
I am trying to get on top of things ahead of Christmas - my son has just 2 weeks of school left before his Christmas holidays!
I'm feeling pretty impressed with myself to have completed these little projects. I am rather pleased with how they turned out and I hope you lovely recipients like them.
I knew I wanted to do some kind of rainbow for you Pam. I was thinking of some kind of star block, but a suitable background other than white was not leaping out at me. Then I found this design while searching for ideas on the web (apologies to the designer - I've lost where I've been so I can't give you the appropriate acknowledgements). I like how I could still have a rainbow with the warm colours surrounded by the greens and blues. Misses 9 & 11 both prefer the left hand arrangement, but I think I like the drama of the right hand one. Anyhoo, I will send you both Pam.
I rarely use pink and yet it was such fun choosing fabrics for this Claire. I was a bit worried that I'd ended up with too many dot/circle prints, but I compared my photo with yours and Amy's and it looks like they tie in. I think the resulting quilt will be delightfully charming.
I started out trying to create you a yellow block Micaela. But it kept ending up with too many other colours in it - sort of a sunset rather than a rainbow!! So I went with my strength....green. It is quite amazing how many bright lime and apple greens I have in my stash. This block makes me smile - I think I may have to make a twin...and then a quilt....not enough hours in the day.
