So once again, the lure of the Bottled Rainbow quilt designed by Rachel was too hard for me to resist. I needed a cheerful quilting project and this one never fails to make me happy. Plus I really just want to finish it! Remember that crazy goal I have to get myself down to two projects at one time?! I am determined to make that not just a dream. lol
So I’ve finally managed to finish up every Bottled Rainbow Block! I wasn’t necessarily trying to finish this at first, but once I got so close I knew that I needed to. So in no particular order, my final blocks are…
Deep Pink – I don’t remember who sent the button scraps but I am so happy to give that wonderful fabric a home!
Cerise – I love so many of these scraps!
Yellow – I had to dig through some special scraps for this one. It may be my favorite block…of course, I say that a lot!
Red – look at that luscious piece of Christmas Zoo Print!
Navy – I had to pull the fabric out of my stash for this one…the only block that didn’t use entirely scraps!
Orange – Katie Jump Rope, Japanese Elephants, Prints Charming, FFA, Lightning Bugs, and so much more!
And then I was playing around with the layout for the quilt. I used some slightly different colors than Rachel originally suggested because I just wanted to use my stash. So I felt the need to rearrange some colors a bit to make more sense with my particular fabrics.
I think it works…and I think that this is what I went with. I’ve actually sewn it together already! I still need to put the border on the quilt but the blocks are all together.
I’m loving how it looks. I’ll be sure to post more pics when it’s finished. Which will hopefully be soon!
Is anyone else behind on this quilt along like me?! lol.
