For week two of the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along we cut out our background fabrics and sewed the middle blocks. I decided to use the white and grey fabric as background in this quilt after getting so many compliments on it in my last post. I'll use something else for my other project.
After posting my photo last week and seeing some of the fabrics chosen by other quilters, I decided I wanted more gradation between the colours in my pull. I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that I live so close to my local quilt shop, but two trips to the store and I'm now happier with my fabrics. I'll have lots of extra rainbow fabric left over so I'll have to plan some more rainbow goodness in my future.
Here are the completed blocks. Like Ruth I chose to use Red, Yellow, Turquoise and Purple for these parts of the quilt.
Looking at the photo I just realized I sewed the points of the red block to the wrong side of the red squares. I'll resew it so the pinky red is up near the pinks and the more orangey red is down with the oranges. Have I mentioned that I have become really obsessive about how I want the fabrics to go together. I'm looking forward to seeing how they flow together in the quilt.
I'm adding my picture to the Modern Quilters Ireland, Rainbow Rose linkup. I'm looking forward to seeing other peoples blocks. If you'd like to join us you still can.
