Rainbow Challenge Scrap Happy Saturday

After last week's disaster I played it safe and made another block for the charity quilt. As you can see there's a piece of that rose fabric at the top of the picture.

Here's the quilt on the design wall. I'm really pleased with the gray I used for the center string. I purchased it in Lancaster at Zooks, my favorite place to shop in Lancaster.

The inner border is a narrow gray strip and I chose this really colorful stripe for the outer border. Lots and lots of color in this quilt. Must have been influenced by the gray and snowy winter. (ya think?) The only color not included in the stripe is the Aqua, but you really can't tell.

Here's a little peek at what's on the design wall now.
Have a great weekend!

Very striking! I love how your rainbow strings quilt is turning out. I may just have to work up one of these as a small-piece stashbuster!

That quilt is looking wonderful. I too love the gray in the middle.

The grey in the middle is a great idea - less harsh then black but still great contrast - I'm going to have to use that idea - Thanks!. The rainbow blocks with that strip will be marvelous...

LOVE the string quilt done that way - in one colour blocks..it looks amazing. The grey strip running through the centre really highlights the colours. Wonderful job Char.

I have some of the bright circle fabric in your bottom picture. Cant wait to see those blocks in all their loveliness!

The strings are looking great! I, too, like the center stripe. It's perfect for tying all these colors together.

Your strings are really coming together nicely. The stripe looks perfect for a border. Love the way the gray ties it all together.
