Rainbow Scraps Inspiration

I had a plan for projects I wanted to work on as part of the Rainbow Scraps Challenge in 2015. (You might have noticed that since the arrival of the new year, I haven't worked on any of them).

I had been thinking that I didn't want to make another "rainbow" quilt, then I saw this, hanging outside the Accuquilt booth at AQS Quiltweek in Albuquerque.

(Photo taken with their permission.)  Most of these shapes are made from smaller units and I already own most of the dies I'd need to do something like this from my scraps.

I am headed back to the show to see the rest of the quilts and ... maybe buy one of the dies I'd need if I decide I DO have another rainbow quilt in me ;-) 

I'm sharing with the Scrap Happy Saturday crowd ... in case anyone is inspired to join me.

What a SUPER idea . . . I hope you follow through with it!

I love the Storm At Sea design and this is certainly spectacular.

That storm at sea doesn't look intimidating at all - more like the rainbow after the storm. It's beautiful. Hope you decide to give it a go.

Terri said...

OMG that is a beauty. Classic pattern - and gorgeous color! You do need to make one.
Hugs

Cathy said...

Oh, yes...isn't that gorgeous! Probably easy going if you have a cutter! Go for it!

That's probably the prettiest Storm at Sea I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing the photo.

I really like the effect of the rainbow colours. This is a great quilt

Bridget said...

If you make this, would you recommend the strip cutter or would you cut the strips old school style?

I like this quilt, think I'd be up to the challenge.

Sheila said...

Celine said...

Wow this is fantastic Sophie!

Deb A said...

Beautiful quilt! If you want something different you could always use the challenge to make a 2 color or 4 color quilt working on the parts as the color comes up. Or a single color one...... Just putting it out there =)
