I'm joining Ruth of Charley and Ben's Crafty Corner and the Modern Quilters in a quilt along. It's the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along and we'll be making Ruth's rainbow version of the Dutch Quilt block. There's still time for you to join up if you would like to. This week we are linking up our rainbow fabric pull. Here's mine.
I picked up this background fabric on sale at my LQS for a different project. I thought it would also look good with this project so I went back to see if there was more I could pick up but as I suspected it was all gone. So I picked up a similar design in all white. I also picked up a couple more pinks, blues (not turquoise) and oranges to fill out the colours a bit more. If you have any tips or comments about my fabric choices please feel free to add your suggestions.
I'll be making the baby quilt size and enlarging it to a lap by adding more negative space around the Rose Block.
I think this quilt along is going to be a lot of fun so I'm happy to be getting the first set of instructions on Wednesday. I don't think I've made a rainbow quilt before. I'm linking up with the Modern Quilters Ireland, won't you join me?
I'm also linking up with Let's Bee Social at Lorna's blog Sew Fresh Quilts.
