Last Bottled Rainbows blocks, done! Knocked out four blocks yesterday, even in the midst of babysitting. (How do you sewing, blogging moms do it?) I did turn on Yo Gabba Gabba, which I only know from watching The Soup. It's hypnotic, and worked like a charm to get little Lucy's attention on the TV and not my glue stick. :)
Cerise, easily my favorite of this round
Turquoise: proved that sewing with voile scraps is not a problem
Buttercup, and my first Gen X swap block came in handy. Hello, cute elephants!
And another orange. I made two blocks of the same color, though not on purpose. I thought the previous block was darker orange until I set out all my blocks. At this point, I say oh well. I'm really happy with the overall look, and this is all the more encouragement to change up the block arrangment...
I'm experimenting with other layouts rather than the rainbow-esque color flow, so I think this will work just fine!
Warm and cool layout. I didn't stick to the same solids as Rachel, but here's an attempt to mirror the color flow in the traditional bottled rainbows quilt. The major difference here is that I put 4 of my favorite blocks in the middle, which are all bold colors, and built out from there.
Disco-esque layout. Since spreading out the oranges is a must, I think I'm partial to this layout. In fact, it reminds me a lot of Jess's Scrappy Rainbow Quilt, which I loved. And I kept some of my favorites in the middle, for optimal viewing.
I may or may not sew them together today. Need to get moving on some freelance work, and I wouldn't mind another day to mull over the possibilities.
Did you finish any projects this weekend (or come close)?
