There hasn’t been much sewing at my house lately but over the weekend I managed to get a couple of new quilts cut out. I had a layer cake from Barbara Brackman’s Moderism collection.
All the prints in this collection are pretty dark so I needed to find a project that didn’t require a lot of contrast. I really like Elisa Wilson’s templates for Crazy Curves and knew that the 8” Rainbow Block Template fits perfectly on a 10” square. This is a fast quilt to cut and piece and even the quilting goes quickly because an overall edge-to-edge design works really well. Since I’ve made this a couple of times before I thought there was a post showing how to easily cut these blocks from a layer cake but I didn’t find it. I’ll work up a quick demo after work today and post it tomorrow. It is such a fun quilt to make.
I have a few of the blocks pieced and think I’m really going to like this one. There are only two seams in each block so it will only take a couple more hours to finish them and the fun of setting the blocks together will begin!

I so want to make a circle quilt but seem to shy away from them. I look forward to seeing your tutorial.

I took at class from you using circles. I made mine out of batiks…….I will bring it to show & tell sometime. Love your fabrics.
