Rainbow Triangles and Easter BOM

March is over and so are the greens -- there is not even a dent in my green scraps!  

Also, our local quilt guild continues with the calendar themed Block of the Month.   "April Showers" requires only an umbrella -- that's it --- but we are then challenged to embellish the umbrella as much as we want.   Celebrating Easter and the rainbow of colors (blue, purple, green and a little April yellow), I'm delighted to share my BOM.  My poor yellow rabbit is a little see-thru; but still cute. I traced a piece of marshmallow rabbit and then ate it. YUM!

Green Rainbow Blocks and BOM

Adding green to the stash of 12" Rainbow Stars is delightful -- the colors are playing so well together.  

In addition, our guild has a calendar themed Block of the Month, which makes this "Lucky Clover" so appropriate as extra green eye candy.  We donate our blocks for the year and assemble them into charity quilts.

Rainbow Challenge and Star Strings

March Greens have really changed the dynamic of the blocks above; with small circles forming as the blocks are butted up to each other.  The pattern is not mine, however if I ever locate this block in print (I'm sure I have seen it before); I will give the designer or magazine credit.  It has been a lot of fun going through my old magazines looking for this block (an excuse to relax and browse the old fashion way) ....  all I can remember is that it was vintage.

And...since we are on the subject of Rainbow quilts, the string quilt was born from newspaper foundations  made with a 60 degree ruler - the foundation unit was 6 1/2" tall.  Made for a class demonstration on 60 degree rulers, I have always wanted to go back and make a much larger variation of this quilt.  Oh well, one day.  (No pattern, the quilt was achieved by using the design wall and a lot of twisting and turning).

Rainbow - Greens

For the 4th week of February (Purple/Blues) and 1st week of March (Green) the Scrappy little block will be the perfect accent to a quilt someday -- just not yet sure how I will use them.
