One has to start somewhere, so I picked "Everything's Coming Up Rainbows" designed by Krista Fleckenstein. I gathered together a cheerful collection of fabrics and got to work.
I couldn't help but think how these squares remind me of the gum Chiclets. So, that's what I named my version : )
I really love how the colours pop on the light grey background.
the sort of fractured construction of the blocks keeps it from getting boring while piecing.
I haven't any idea how I am going to quilt this myself. It measures nearly 60 x 84. I left off the final border because it's a nice twin size just the way it is.
That's one thing off my list for the first quarter of the Finish Along. It won't officially count unless it's quilted, but I'm happy still.
Have a great week.
linking up with W.I.P. wednesday

Your chiclets look great! I love the balance between the punch of color yet the softness of the whole quilt. Thanks for sharing :-)

Very nice! I have quilted similar quilts (and larger) on my home machine. You can do it!
