Cloudy With A Chance Of Rain(bow)


OK, whose fault is it?  I join in this WIP Wednesday & suddenly find myself starting a new project!  So here I am with square no. 3 in the Hello Sun quiltalong.  It's really quick actually.  I think I would get very impatient waiting all month for a new one!  I have been easily able to get these 3 done in the last few days!.  This latest one is cute.  I did end up with a bit too far to the left though darn it.  I will just have to trim it from the other side & bottom instead when it comes to squaring them up.  

We did have the most awesome rainbow last night!  It was one of the most vibrant coloured ones I have ever seen.  You could see the whole thing & not just patches.  Each colour was so clear in it too!  Very pretty!   So this square was great timing.  I managed to get most of it done before 9am today!  How did I manage that I will never know!  But the cookies were out of the oven before 8am so it's been quite a day already!

Here are the scraps that I am getting pieces from.  I didn't make this mess in my search.  I had help with that.  Well 2 little helpers in the end actually.  I have a bigger mess than this now.  They did have fun rolling in it & tossing it over their heads like confetti!  

Linking up with Work In Progress Wednesday...

Wow! Your block is so cool! And I'd trow all those great scraps around to if I could! Lol! But it's good to have a nice asortment to choose from when you make fun quilt blocks!

I've looked at the other sun blocks you've finished so far as well. They are all so darling!

I have two little helpers that also love to play in my scrap bin. Or in whole yards if I leave them out. Yesterday, they asked me to tie a yard around them and they were "going to a wedding". Pieces from the scrap bin went in the hair.
