Rainbow Rose QAL Fabric Selection

My online friend Ruth @Charly & Ben’s Crafty Corner is hosting a Quilt Along through the Modern Quilters Ireland blog. This week is the introduction to the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along and the instructions are for fabric selection. I had a lot of fun gathering my materials!

The requirements I put on myself were to shop my stash. So the first thing I did was evaluate my background fabric options. I don’t have anything with more than 2 yards in my stash currently, so I knew I would be making the baby version which calls for 5-inch charm squares. Knowing I had several charm packs, I started with a base of the Modern Basics from Michael Miller Fabrics and then cut extra 5-inch squares from my stash to fill in the gaps as best I could.

Looking over my fabric selection, I think I might work to refine the transition from dark teal to light teal to bright blue. Hmmm.

    That’s more than a stash . That’s a shop in the attic.!

    Nice fabric pull Yvonne: I’m working on pulling mine together now. I could do a decent job with fat quarters but I’m also making the Baby version….but enlarging to a lap so I’m going to raid the scrap bins and see how I do there.

    That fabric pull is lovely. I always have troubles mixing my blues. There are so many variations.
    I really like how there is a white dot square evenly throughout your rainbow. I can’t wait to see this grow.

    your fabrics are so pretty, I love them all

  5. Good Morning Yvonne! Such fun, bright and cheery fabrics you chose for this Quilt Along! I will have to go and check out the link you provided and see if it is something I would want to do. I am always attracted to fabrics such as the ones you chose. Thank you for sharing and do have a fantastic creative day!

    That is a very pretty selection. I’m not sure I can do this QAL. I’d love to, but I have 6 WIP’s.

  7. Ooh, this is a pretty pull. Love the plums and the little bit of mint peeking out. Can’t wait to see this one!

  8. Lena says:

    Wow, a really beautiful rainbow! Is the background going to be white?

  9. Looks wonderful Yvonne! Your quilt is going to be wonderful.

  10. This looks like fun, but I am still struggling to make time to fit everything in. No new projects for me for a while, and certainly nothing with a timetable.

  11. Gorgeous bundle of fabrics! I will be watching this QAL to see everyones creations 🙂 I have a few new projects on my list right now since I have 3 swaps completed (2 still need to be mailed). I have the easiest time completing those for whatever reason – they’re just so fun! Next is on to a SuperTote for myself then a quilt. I hardly ever do selfish sewing but these have been on my list for some time so i’d like to mark them off.

    Ive never participated in a QAL before but i also want to do that in the future! Cant wait to see what you make!

    Lovely fabric choices Yvonne – I’ll be coming in with my fabric choices just under the wire tonight!

  13. Ruth says:

    Thanks a million Yvonne for linking up – looks beautiful! Last year I was obsessed with collecting nice purples – this year I seem to looking for sky blues!

  14. Rachel says:

    Very pretty colors! I love all the dots!

  15. Lara B. says:

    I’m joining in with the baby version too, but will be lagging a bit behind. You did an excellent job with your rainbow of fabric squares Yvonne! It’s going to be beautiful!

  16. This looks like fun. I love rainbow-colored quilts, and the block is so familiar to me. I love how you arranged your colors from saturated to speckled; a great choice of fabrics!

  17. Oh I wish I could participate but summer is always hard for me to do much sewing. I really like your fabric pulls, I’m such a pushover for polkadots!

  18. Jasmine says:

    I love your fabric selection! They look so pretty together,

  19. This is another one I’ve seen a few photos for in passing, and it really does look gorgeous, although some (in our house!) might say hard to go wrong with a rainbow!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
