Rainbow Around The Block


Here's the block that I made for the Rainbow Around The Block project. Anna Maria Horner is organizing the making of as many quilts as possible for the flooded out folks of Tennessee. I had to do a very simple block as I completely failed and flailed at making an actual for-real, correctly sized 12.5" block. I don't care too much when I make blocks for myself, but when it is for someone else, then it is suddenly very important!
First I tried this one. Really off! I like how it looks though!
I thought this one would be nice and easy, nope. Sigh. Guess I need to go back to beginning quiltmaker school, or try it again without the painkillers.

There is still lots of time to contribute a block if you feel like making one, all the rules and requirements are here.

Good for you! I am so glad you are participating. You can put borders on your blocks and voila', they are the correct size! Upload them to her Flickr group and feel the love!

I know about the borders, but that always seems so lame, and makes it hard to sew together for the person assembling the quilt. And yes, I did put my block up on the Flickr group, there are some really beauties up there!
