blocks 09

actually the jury's been out from the beginning, I don’t think these little guys ever had a chance , perhaps I shouldn’t had researched “RAINBOW” for there’s no future of them having that rainbow flowing kind of look, perhaps it’s the homespun, I had seen on You Tube where a lady made blocks & threw them in a bag as  she made them & not look in the bag till ready to start arranging for  the quilt humm maybe this would work? outta sight outta mind lol! anyways I am adding in some yellows but still need to add more to make it work

I’ve had triangles on my mind, there’s so many possibilities with them, flying geese, chevron, stars, spools, pinwheels,a trip around the world look

over all I’ve went back & read all the encouraging comments from my Feb 21 post & if yal can still make me laugh about them there may be hope lol!

I like joyful quilters response to keep going & in the end  if I still don’t like them donate them lol! *just make them right? lol!

Magi Sue suggest withhold judgment till more blocks are made just do it! *ha guess  I do need more than 6 or so of one color lol!

gotta  love Pamela for cheering me on to keep going each month & in the end just send them to her if I still don’t like them , lol!  *ha ha either way somebody make  that quilt !

if I can laugh  about it , there’s hope for it right? the jury will reassess & come up with a verdict by next weekend lol!

Well, life's short. Decide if the homespuns are making you sing or not before you continue. I am not into wasting though... I'd at least make them into something fun like a tote or little quilt. They are charming even if not rainbow like. And color being relative.... also a well placed brighter applique would jazz them up. All my opinion, for what it's worth. LeeAnna at not afraid of color

I think it could still be "Rainbow"... in a muted, plaid/country sort or way. You can always make a separate "Rockin' Rainbow" brightly colored quilt, in addition to this one, if it's not speaking to you...donate it.

So we are on a 'recess' until the jury comes back with a verdict? Hmmm I hope it says to continue but if not - someone will take it off your hands or sew them together and add some rickrack and some little girl will love it to death =)

Thanks for your comment on my post.

The layout will determine so much. The homespuns can make a beautiful country feel quilt. Make a few yellows and if yu still don't like it as a top it can always be part of a backing.
