There hasn't been a lot of sewing machine time this week, and when there was time it was reserved for machine quilting the 4 patch quilt. I've been poking along with it, and I'm getting close.
Consequently, the piecing I've done has been entirely by hand, working on the last two blocks for the Rainbow Trip Around the World quilt.
Pieces prepped for a bright green block:
And a light neutral block finished, with the green block in progress:
Here are all the completed blocks up on my design wall in their color groupings. This won't be the final layout, of course, but I'll start working on that as soon as the last green block is finished.
And then I'll be hand-piecing the blocks into rows.
I'm really enjoying the slow-stitching process of this quilt
as well as the way the blocks are looking together!

This is going to be such a pretty quilt! I love the new block!! Have a great weekend Diann!
I hope you get lots of sewing time over the weekend.
I'm trying to decide for my scrappy patchwork if I will continue working on it through next year or finish it up this year and make an alternative block to go in between them, like stars or something like that - what size are squares are in your 6 x 6 blocks - mine are 12 when finished
I kinda like the orientation of your scrappy squares, just needs some of the colors spread out.
Those fabrics in your 4-patch are so cute. I really like how your rainbow trip is looking. Enjoy your slow stitching weekend Diann! :)
It is so exciting to see the blocks all starting to come together. Can't wait to see the last one!
I really like how you arranged your colors in each TATW block, and especially like that white down the middle. It really pulls them together nicely. This will be a happy quilt.
Progress on your 4-Patch and prep work done for the final Trip block sounds like a great week to me!
Yea for the win! You did find some green! Isn’t it surprising sometimes when you start the search and then low and behold there is more in your stash than originally thought. At least that is how it works for me! I may never get my scraps busted! Great progress!
Love the blog post title! This is a project to be especially proud of with every stitch by hand... and it's gorgeous!
Love to see all the blocks together. It will be a wonderful quilt. AND all hand pieced! WOW! Enjoy! ;^)
Your trip blocks are so pretty! I have loved watching them grow this year. Have a wonderful weekend.
You are certainly getting a lot of enjoyment out of hand piecing your blocks.dont they all look wonderful together!
Those are some beautiful TATW blocks! I'm so impressed that you hand pieced them.
Love your blocks and hand-piecing makes me happy too. Keep plugging along on that 4-patch quit. It'll be done before you know it and then you can hand sew that binding down!
Love these blocks, putting them on my collective list of wanna do's but I promise I wont be doing them by hand.
Are you hand joining the blocks together?
They are looking wonderful together, Diann.
What a wonderful rainbow on your design wall! This will be a beautiful quilt. And congrats on your progress quilting the 4 patch, it's looking really good!
Nice green block in the making, Diann. As for the four patches: you've found a good quilting design for all those different colours.It looks like you're making good progress.
Your quilt is looking so good!
This is super pretty, Diann!
That rainbow quilt is going to be great. I am looking forward to seeing the final layout.
I'm super impressed you've done those TATW blocks by hand it is going to look gorgeous!
Beautiful blocks, and I am also impressed you have done them by hand! Great work! Happy stitching!
That is a lovely layout for those wonderful blocks. I hope you get some sewing time this weekend!
