So OK, I have too much fabric, and want to make some quilts that aren't overly fussy. What else to start with than the bright rainbow blocks I started a few weeks ago.
I had an idea so I decided to throw some pieces up on the design wall to see what it looked like. I thought I would line up pieces of the same size across one row and then let the blocks grow in size both above and below.
Here's the first one:
I thought it needed to be wider, so I added another column on the right.
I decided to keep going.
Except the top and bottom rows can't be the narrowest blocks. I have to rearrange this so wider blocks are on the top and bottom edges.
BUT! Because I am a "free piecer" I am NOT going to make more. I'm simply going to combine some pieces I already have throughout the quilt and make this a bit more unexpected.
