Rainbow block


It seems the only thing I've been sewing lately are blocks for the quilting bee I'm a part of. Not that I mind. I really enjoy the challenge with each new block. It's fun to discover fabric combination that I would not normal use. This block was for Sarah. She's making a quilt for her brother's wedding present and her color theme is "rainbow." Now that's definitely not a color scheme I usually work with. She wanted something Denyse Schmidt inspired, something log cabinish. This obviously isn't a log cabin, but I instantly wanted to do this. Hopefully she likes it!

How could she not like it? It is very pretty. Is the white used in all the blocks?

She'd be nuts to not love it! By the way, your Pieced Together block from me is going into the mail first thing tomorrow. Right now I am having issues with my iPhoto program, so if it gets to you before I'm able to upload a photo to the Flickr group, if you would take a pic of it for me and post it, I would be forever grateful. My MacBook is going to the "doctor" tomorrow, so hopefully my picture issues will be fixed soon...:)
