Rainbow FWMQG Trade

The trade for the Fort Worth Modern Quilt Guild was issued a few months ago to trade in September a mini rainbow quilt. I knew I would be on a Fall trip for several months so had to get it done. It was a really hard decision on a pattern but with no time to tarry I got to choosing. Wow there are a lot of choices but with it being a mini I knew I could not go too crazy. My attention was drawn to the fact my swap partner liked batics and abstract. I have always been drawn to the Arcadia Avenue by Sassafras Designs  block of the month as I saw it on Internet sites and had it in my pattern stash. Paper piecing is not my always go to but I really liked the patterns and the size of each block would make for a nice size mini.  I chose block number 4.

  1. Wow - impressive! That's a dynamic block pattern no matter what color you'd choose. Just stunning in this combination. Perfect set in the white background with the multicolor binding. Love your choice of quilting patterns as well. A winner on all levels.

    1. Thank you I do love these block patterns
