Mid Year Update

RSC 15

Angela has encouraged us to do a lay out of our RSC15 projects for a review of our progress for the first half of the year.  Please go visit to see all the great Rainbow projects on display.


All my bricks for this project. 40-50 bricks of each color will be more than I need, but it will give me a nice selection when laying this out and the left overs can pieced into the back.


I just love saw-tooth stars - they make me happy as well as a connection to a heritage in thread.  They get combined with.......


the fun 9-patch houses for a another project.


The woven hearts for my 'Angel' charity quilt for the Christmas season.


And these are Connie's flower blocks.  The need some pre-stitching/quilting before I can add the color piecing that goes on each.  I am thinking of making an alternating block with a different type flower center to go with these for a larger quilt lay out.

Have you ever done a rainbow quilt?  If not, you can certainly start now.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. Bricks, hearts, stars, houses. LOVE all your awesome RSC projects and I'm looking forward to seeing all of your colorful blocks become quilts later this year. I'll be stealing some of your RSC project ideas for next year's challenge.

  14. The quilt I am working on now certainly would pass as a rainbow quilt. I like all those blocks, especially the stars and houses.

  17. You've done a great job of keeping up with the colors each month. Lots of gorgeous rainbows are going to come out of your sewing room at the end of the year.
