Rainbow Jane


I have a plan for 2013.   Here is my version of Rainbow Scrap Challenge Dear Jane in a trip around the world arrangement.  Each month there will be a new focus color.  Not sure yet how many blocks I can get done each month, but I have a feeling it will take more than one month for each color.  


Dear Jane Progress July 7, 2014
All the blocks are sewn together.  Now for the border triangles.

Block tutorials are available at That Quilt Blog.  They are quite helpful. 
The original Dear Jane site still has block hints and information about the quilt and the book.  

Cathy is playing along too.  Go visit her blog to see how her quilt is coming along

Well I have started with you now. I have a little different Rainbow placement then you. I love the list you made for yourself. Well sick this week I made a list too. Just getting to the first blocks.

Kathy said...

Your blocks are looking amazing. I see that you are posting blocks to show your progress, have you thought of using a spreadsheet and then insert the pictures of your blocks into the correct position.
I really like your color choice.

Susan said...
