Rainbow Scrap Challenge - this is the last YELLOW Saturday for the month of June. You can read more about my YELLOW Hootie HERE,
and Soul Searching HERE.....
The day after I finished the YELLOW Soul Searching block, I put them all on the floor to see how they are looking -- and I just couldn't resist.....
..... I HAD to start pulling blacks for the center block to see how it was going to look!
I want the blacks to have the same colors in them to mirror the blocks as they move around the quilt. Here is a closeup of the fabrics I finally chose ....
Before I knew it, I had started cutting and putting the block together!
And here it is in it's place.
Can you tell that the colors move around the center block in a mirror to the blocks around it? I'm really happy with the way this is turning out!! You'll notice that I have already made the RED block :) I went ahead and made it a few months ago when I washed my red fabrics. It's nice to have that done!!! Now I only have to do an ORANGE block for that center bottom space and these blocks will be DONE!

I call this one Flowercrackers! This quilt has been fused but still needs it's buttonhole applique stitching and quilting before it is ready to go on the wall. I'm really loving it !!!
