Rainbow WIP Wednesday

29 Apr

Without further ado:

The main thing I’ve been working on this week is my Rainbow Road project for the Curves class (from Rachel at Stitched in Color) – I got really really behind (the class ended I think back in February or March!) but I’m still determined to plug away at the projects. This is using a bunch of different colors of Kona cotton, some leftovers from the few projects I’ve finished, but most from either the remnants bin at Joann’s and a FQ bundle of the new Kona colors I got for Christmas.

I don’t know if I’ll quite get there but my intention is to finish this up as a Mother’s Day project for my Mother-In-Law – my in-laws have a really great rainbow curvy abstract painting hanging in their dining room so I thought this would compliment it well. I’m actually waiting on a new blade for my rotary cutter so that I can cut some curves and sew it all together.

I also did a few bee blocks – I’m doing my first bee (The Bee Hive featuring patterns from Blossom Heart Quilts). I’m enjoying it so far. Our April queen asked for these blocks with a text middle and bright colors so it was really fun to pull some fabric and make them up.

If you’re wondering, I did finish my Winged quilt but that will be another post!

Linking up with Lee for WIP Wednesday!
