Rainbow Quilt in Progress
soscrappy. I have now come to the point where I have sewn these 9 patches together, by colour, into groups of 36. They do look so pretty together!
I have four more blocks set aside that I didn't have room to put on my design wall. That leaves me one 36 patch block short if I decide on a 5 x 5 layout. I have pulled out enough 2.5" blue squares from my scrappy bins to make the last block but.....I am not too sure if I want a square quilt. I have the option to go with a 4 x 6 layout which just might suit me better. I think I should hold off making the extra block for now - if I do need it I have everything in place to make it.
I still need to cut the white strips for the sashing that goes between the blocks and I have to decide if I will be adding a border treatment.
