Before I jumped into the Rainbow Rose QAL Week 2 instructions for cutting and piecing, I first went back to my stash and edited the fabric transition from teal to blue.
My original pull is on the left, and I was unhappy with the too light transition from teal to blue. On the left you can see I changed out for a bit darker Alison Glass Bike Path, and that works better for me.
The Week 2 instructions start out with cutting the background fabric which came together quickly enough. Then there is a lovely discussion about color selection for the “middle pieces”. I decided to take all my (36) 5″ charm pieces and think through how I would like to see them arranged in the quilt (who knows if it will end up that way, but it worked for me). That allowed me to select and use these colors with confidence.
I am definitely enjoying this process and happy to have a project to look forward to working on each week.
