I had a plan to make a bunch of blue string blocks for my Rainbow Challenge for 2014
but I didn’t get that done. I want to make a chevron type quilt and I’m not giving up yet……the month isn’t over or….I might be a little late on the first month of blocks.
For now I am playing with a new block. Actually I started out wanting to do the free motion cross hatch on a flower so I pulled out a box of circles that I already had cut and remember the neutral colored string blocks I made…..I’m still using them for all kinds of projects. Anyway, I appliqued the flower on the block and then decided to make it bigger and also use some of my BLUE scraps.
I think I would like it better with the corner half square triangles turned in the opposite direction with the blue to the outside of the block. Now I am thinking that a block similar to this each month in a different color would be fun….what do you think?
Here is the quilt that I made using the neutral blocks in case you missed it – Garden Maze. I have been asked many times to make a pattern for this and….it is on the list!
I made a rainbow string quilt for my 2012 quilt and quilted it using a QAYG method which you can read more about in that post.
Have you ever taken part in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge? I looked back and I first started doing it in 2011. It is fun and there really aren’t any rules. I remember the first year making something for RED and emailing asking if I could add some black and brown to it. Angela told me there were NO rules!
