Rainbow in Fabric

I figured out how many of what size blocks I needed and then started throwing blocks up on the design wall.  This thing will be about 56" wide by 68" tall. I may do some rearranging of fabrics, but by and large I am ready to start sewing it together. I plan to sew the long columns together first.

One thing I discovered is that this quilt really needs blocks of predominantly one color. Blocks that were made of large prints with other colors didn't work.

See? Those butterflies had to go.

Oooh - those butterflies didn't work at all, did they!

I have enjoyed watching the development of this quilt design as I favour simple patchwork myself. When it can be made to look this fabulous, it seems absolutely magical to me.
