Scrappy Rainbow Block

After making several blocks and going back and forth, I decided on my block.
Most of the quilts I make tend to gravitate towards the girly look. This is great for me, but I live in a house of 5 and I am the only girl :) I would like this quilt to be colorful and fun.
My inspiration came from here and here.
I hope everyone has fun making my blocks, that was my ultimate goal :)
I used 4 inch colored squares. The rectangles between the squares is Kona white 2.5 x 4 inches. The sashing is 2.5 x 15.5 inches.
I do ask that you would use Kona white for the background of your colored squares. I get mine at Joann's using the 1/2 price coupon. If anyone needs this, please ask. I would be happy to send you some if needed. I would like 2 blocks, and if possible would like each colored square to be different. All colors are welcomed as this is suppose to be a RAINBOW of colors :)
When I receive all of my blocks I will connect them together with 2.5 inch white sashing. I think it will make a wonderful and fun quilt!


  1. What a great block - it will be fun to find bright squares in my stash!

  2. Rene I really like that block!! So simple! I didn't know you were the only girl in a house of boys! :D Or should I say of the opposite sex?

  3. Nice! I like the charm square quilt as inspiration. Great choice! I'm narrowing down my ideas ... -- michele

  4. Crystal-even my dog is a boy :)

    Glad everyone likes the block. I thought it would be fun and non stressful. I know how people tend to stress over doing blocks for other people...I know I do :)

  5. I really like the block, and it will be lots of fun making, using all the different fabrics. The quilt will surely be beautiful when you get it done, using the various fabrics throughout.
