RSC 2017: first block

This is the third year I've participated in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge hosted by Angela at So Scrappy. I keep finding great patterns that lend themselves to rainbow blocks.  (I know I could work on an entire quilt in the monthly color, but that's not what I want to do.)

Here's the pattern I'm going to use this year. It's "Petals" by Natalia Bonner.  It was published in Fons & Porter in 2012. You can get it online here.





Now that I see the photo I realize that my petals don't line up precisely.  Remember, "Do it once and it's a mistake. Do it twice and it's a design element."

Linking up a couple of days late:
Scrap Happy
and on time for
Linky Tuesday

  1. No one is going to have the pattern sitting in front of them when they look at your quilt. All they are going to see is a riot of colorful flowers. It will be BEAUTIFUL!!!

  2. Great idea. Are you planning to make one block per color or a couple of blocks? I'm still trying to pick a block. This year I really want to stick with it for the whole year. We'all see if I am successful.
