WIP Wednesday: Rainbow Brite

This week I’ve been working on the Solid as a Rock pattern.  I’ve got my sample mostly made.  It will be completely made if I feel like it doesn’t need another border:

Nina’s laser beams are cracking me up.

Options I’m considering include:

  • Piano key like border
  • Chunks of solid colors (maybe around 4″ x 6″)
  • BIG chunks of solid colors in different sizes (between 4″ x 6″ and 4″ x 18″)

It has just occurred to me that this is a benefit of EQ7, so I’m off to play with border designs!

  1. Oops. Had to correct the fat finger spelling of my cyber name. Am anxious to see what and if you decide on that border.

  2. I am not generally a big fan of the Friendship Star block. However the Friendship Star variation in the bottom left hand corner is wonderful. I really like it. The additions definitely are not boring.

    Nina’s eyes scare me.

  3. I am loving this quilt! You are giving me a new appreciation for what solids can do. Nina is going to shoot laser beams right through the computer at my kitty, I just know it!

  4. Love your quilt and scary kitty! I don’t think it needs anything else added to it. I hope this isn’t too dumb of a question. On the side of the screen on your website, it says to shop Amazon to support the podcast. How does Amazon know that I’m shopping to support you, or am I supposed to click on the link on the screen (which I am always leery about!)? Thanks!

  5. Love this quilt! I would love to make this! Did you make the pattern? Is this one that you will be selling? I love the solids and the colors that you have used. I am just starting to use patterns, and I would love to try this one.

    1. Hi Kate – It was a Block of the Month type pattern run by my LQS. The shop owner asked if I would design a center medallion layout for them to complement the blocks they designed. I’ll ask if they’ll offer the full pattern for sale!
