Here is my most recent layout - 49 blocks in a 7 x 7 square.
I started with pink, then red, orange, yellow/gold, green/turquoise, blue, and finally purple. Even though the colors for this month are orange and yellow, I think I have enough of both of those that I don't need to make any more.
But...I do have some gray blocks that I made in August for the smoky purple/gray month.
To make the quilt a little longer, a rectangle instead of a square, I decided to add 4 more gray blocks. Back to my stash I went to see what gray fabrics I could find.
These blocks are so simple to make - a 2 1/2 by 21 inch strip of the main fabric, and the same size piece of a low volume background fabric. I've made every single one of my blocks different, so there are a variety of low volumes included, and 56 different main fabrics. This will make for a very scrappy, but I think interesting and fun, quilt!
Last night I stitched up my 4 last blocks.
Although originally, I thought I would use the gray as the last row, I've started to think that maybe I will put it in somewhere among the rainbow rows. A little bit of a surprise! Or maybe a place to rest your eyes. We'll see! :)
Off to start sewing up my rows! I'm excited to be at this point!
