Rainbow Road

I have been working on one of my curves class projects today. The project is called Rainbow Road and you can see designer Rachel Hauser's original here. Rachel's runner is a bold beautiful thing. Mine is more sedate, and possibly not even my taste, but it is made with a charm square pack and a metre of fabric that I had in the cupboard. (I am trying to use up my stash this year. Not in a "measure it, don't buy anything else" kind of way. More in a "really I don't have any more space to store anything and I don't want to get rid of anything I just want to use it up" kind of way.) So, mine isn't as exciting as Rachel's. It also isn't a runner. I am planning to finish it off as a baby quilt for my do. Good Stitches group this month. March is a Blankets of Love month. You can go here for more info about Blankets of Love.

I like it. It was so easy to make. (It looks hard, doesn't it?) I have been putting it off because it looks so hard. Now I am excited to make my final project for curves class, Oodalolly, which uses the same construction method.
Bring. It. On.
I wonder what fabric I have in the cupboard that I could possibly use?

This is really sweet and perfect for the March theme.

I can't believe that you started after me and already have your top complete!! I know mine is bigger (43"x21") but I am so over it, I'm currently adding a few pieces to the edges to make it wider (it really needs to be 22" bound). I bought backing fabric today from Ikea so that's pushing me to get the top finished.

I couldn't possibly face making Oodalolly after this. I get so bored working on the same thing day after day.

I really like your colours Kris, especially for a baby quilt and it is a really interesting pattern.

Hushabye is one of my favourite fabric lines ever. Miss P has a quilt made out of it.

Sounds like you're having a ball doing this one !It's cute as a button.
