RSC14- green!

May 10, 2014:

I pieced my green blocks back in March- the disorganized (or too organized?) quilter had stored the teal/aqua scraps somewhere different, and could not find them. so she used green that month instead.

but actually, my original mistake turned out to work very well. this month we're super busy planting (what farmer is NOT crazy busy in May?) and we also have a wedding (in Tennessee, no less!) at the end of the month, so there is not much sewing time here these days.
 

above are my green blocks- all 12 of them. and below is the general idea of where I'd like to go with all my rainbow crumb blocks. can't wait! (but it's definitely a work in progress, and will not be completed too quickly!)
 
 
I designed my rainbow quilt on EQ5-  I'm not even sure if it's an original! I was inspired by lots of the quilts I saw on so scrappy's rainbow pinterest board, and some ideas from Sunday Morning Quilts as well. ( Cheryl and Amanda designs are intriguing to me- I love to haunt their blogs!)
 
and on a completely unrelated note: have you heard about the new mystery quilt? I know I'm crazy, but I'm in!
 
one quick question: does anyone know if we'll be doing black/brown/grey/white as part of the RSC14? I know they're not technically "rainbow", but I do have a fair amount of scraps in those colors...

I don't know, since Angela picks the color, but last year we did gray and black one month, and another year I think there was a neutral month!

Time, or rather, Angela will tell which colours we will use this year. One of your block does have a teal quality to it. It's hiding out in the lower left hand corner. ;)

I like ALL the colors. Even neutrals!

Well, if she does miss a color December is always a 'whatever you want' month to finish things up! She has done a neutral month in the past, usually has a black/grey month and a brown (all shades) month. Your rainbow quilt design is really neat.

Your blocks look great, and I love your plan for the rainbow quilt!

I like your plan for the whole quilt. It makes calculating the number of blocks in each colour super easy and I like that! Your star will really add focus.

Good plan! We usually play with all the colors.
