Making a rainbow

I’ve been piecing some 6″ blocks in a kind of boro-style – ie rough edges – I love rough edges – but, if I decide to make enough to turn them into a rainbow quilt, I shall have to rethink and turn all the edges.  Since we have only glimpsed the sun in between all the rain I thought a rainbow was a good idea.


(although it looks very orange here, blame the light, it is red, honest)







Along with some of my own dyed pieces, I am making them using fabulous hand-dyed fabrics from the lovely Karen whose work and link to her shop you can find here.

No stitching as yet – depends what I decide to do as I make more – a hanging or a useable quilt.

    Fantastic idea, love what you’ve created so far with all these pieces, and adore those rough edges as well as the colours of course – great to see on a dull day like this one, lol!!!

    I love how you are layering and constructing in a relaxed way, here. Colors are to die (DYE?!!) for.
