Bottled Rainbows

Are you working on Bottling a Rainbow?

I recently took a bloggy break and when I returned I saw these blocks everywhere! I am not much of a band wagon quilter. I have avoided hexi's, I have very little FMF and I would rather poke out my eyes than do a cathedral block.

But on Wednesday WIP posts there were so many wonderful blocks I had to go check it out and see how these were coming together. Rachel at Stitched in Color has done a wonderful job putting together this tutorial. She has great tips and ideas and has set up a flicker that is fully populated with blocks that have been completed.

This was my first block, pumpkin. I had lots of scraps to chose from for this block.

Mustard is next. I love how it is coming together.

Surprisingly the eggplant and ocean blue are two colors that I am having issues collecting scraps for. Guess I am going to have to make a new quilt using these colors so I have more scraps.

I am linking to Sarah's Friday Whoop.


  1. I too have seen these quilts everywhere, but I'm resisting as I've got some Easter stuff in the makings. :) But I LOVE your little owl on your orange block! Sew On!

  2. Seen these also, love them. I want to make one but I don't have a lot of scraps so that would mean buying a lot of fq. I don't know if I want it to get pricey. whoop whoop to you, can't wait to see the whole thing. Looking good so far

  3. Love these blocks too, they are a great way to use up scraps and maybe a good excuse to make more scraps;)

  4. I think this is such a great quilt idea - I have plenty of scraps, just no time to make one right now! But someday.... meantime, I'll enjoy yours vicariously!! Whoop whoop!!!

  5. You made me laugh there for obvious reasons! I love these bottled rainbow blocks!

  6. It's fun to see the fabrics that everyone is choosing.

  7. ive just got to follow you now, since you said that about a cathedral window. :)))))
