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.
