RSC15 week 21

WHERE IS THE GREEN?

I am excited about starting on the rainbow quilt for my granddaughter.  It is the first bed-size quilt I have made in many years and has a deadline of mid-July for her 14th birthday.  As you can see below, I am doing a zigzag rainbow, her choice of pattern, similar to a Pinterest pic by Red Pepper Quilts.  I started by doing 21 blocks of red, using jellyroll strips.  I was discouraged by a tension problem, but it took me longer to find my sewing machine manual than it did to fix the tension.  

I completed the red blocks and began orange, so cheerful.  But what about my RSC15 green?  Well, I am using my quilting rainbow of nine colors; it has to include lime green, teal and pink of course.
That puts poor dark green way in the middle.  It is trying to sneak into the photo, but I had to put it back in the box.  Hopefully it will make its arrival next week!

I enjoy being linked up with RSC15 and Sew Cute Tuesday.  Getting to know so many terrific people and being inspired by your beautiful work is a real pleasure.

SWT, rainbow quilt

I am making a quilt for my granddaughter who will be 14 in July.  She is a huge Beatles fan and has painted her room in rainbow colors.  So we decided on a zigzag rainbow quilt for her.  Last week I assembled all my rainbow fabrics and loved doing that.

 This is the beginning, with 21 red and and white 6.5 inch blocks.  It went really smoothly until I disciovered a tension problem, so I decided to blog instead; much less frustrating.  
She was excited to see this beginning to take place and I am glad to have a deadline.  Hopefully next week will be more productive.
