A Rainbow and a Finish

Fall is in the air, my favorite time of the year. I seem to have a new burst of energy with the coming of cooler weather. With the end of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge in sight its a good time to get my quilting projects finished.

Late this afternoon I completed my Chinese Coins top. Because of the late hour I had to photograph it on my small kitchen design floor, so it had to be folded in half.

I have more than enough of the green to do the backing and will probably throw in another strip or two there.

One of my other RSC projects has been neglected. I’ve been preparing charm squares using a rainbow of batiks and attaching a 1-1/2 inch black strip to five of each color. Today I opened the box and started sorting them out. By adding pink, lime green and turquoise I have 10 colors.

These rainbow batik colors surrounded by black will give me a stained glass effect. The placement of the blocks will be something to play with, whether a straight rainbow or a total mixing of the colors. There will be horizontal black sashing as well. I take photos of all my layouts to test them and to keep them in correct order for piecing.

I may finish this as a wall hanging or a small lap quilt for myself, a bright spot of color during the cold winter months.

    The green really did end up looking pretty with your coins. Good choice!

    The black will really make those batiks shine. Wonder how this quilt will end up!!??!
