Capture a rainbow....


I have been playing with the cross blocks from my Stingy Bee mates.    I am sewing them together in an offset layout.  I learnt how from Sarah Fielke - ok it was a craftsy class rather than flying off to Australia but I enjoyed it.

My blocks are ever so pretty and it seems that they wanted to paint a rainbow...



Three rows sewn together...the greens, the yellows and the oranges.



....and here's what I hope it will look like when I've sewn all the blocks together.  There may be some more blocks to arrive and to make but I'll be happy enough to do that.   I started with the darker colours at the top left and drift down to the lighter ones at the bottom right.



Not quite sure yet how I'll finish the edges off - but I'm sure it will all come clear in time!
