Rainbow Rose QAL Week 3

D’oh, I thought I would be posting just under the wire today to link up with Week 3 of the Rainbow Rose QAL, but the link up has already closed. That’s OK; hopefully I will be more timely for Week 4! The goal for Week 3 was to create the corner blocks, and I first spent a lot of time curating the colors I would use in each corner… only to realize that I needed more colored fabric in each corner, so I used a bit of each of the last 5″ charm squares I had prepared!

I really love how this is coming together, and each week’s instructions have been a perfect amount of work.

Also, I am very pleased with how all the blocks are working together! I anticipate going back to my stash to get the center star colors to be a good transition; we’ll see!

    The blocks look beautiful together. I’m quilting along for the first time and
    learning a lot about color at the same time. I enjoy your comments and photos.

    Your transitions are very smooth, Ivonne, and the colors are so clear and bright, they just sing with all the white accents! Pity you didn’t manage to link up – everybody’s photos look so fun side by side, yours would have been a great addition.

    It looks great, Yvonne. I’m way behind…like I need to start. I wasn’t going to play because the color range in my stash isn’t the greatest, but bless Sandra’s heart she surprised me with squares she cut from her stash. She’s such a sweetie! Now I need to catch up before the end :)

  21. My artist daughter and I were discussing how many projects are being made using the rainbow! I love them. She also discussed the acronym ROY-G-BIV, which I had forgotten.
    Nice work!

  22. Very nice! You have a great color transition for the rainbow.

  23. Your fabric colors are so rich and the transition from color to color is spot on. Too bad you missed the link-up. It’s going to be beautiful when it’s all done.

  24. Your quilt is looking so good. It is going to be amazing.

  25. It’s coming on so fast and looking beautifully crisp against the white.

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