November OMG and RSC Flimsy

Well, I didn't wait to hear from anyone in the post where I showed this possible layout on the design wall to be honest, and I sewed up the proposed layout for my RSC2018 quilt top!
I love it, and am glad I did this little-bit-unconventional layout.



It will be my OMG for November, to finish it. I love these rainbow quilts, much-needed vibrancy and happy colour in the past rainy days, (but the sun is out this morning yay!) not to mention the gloomy state of worldly affairs, and worry, shock, and depression about things in the country south of my own, and some incomprehensible changes (backward) in my province of Ontario with this new premier...

I think I may have a quilting idea already decided upon! Knowing me, ha, that could very well change. What won't change is who has claimed this quilt...

It looks great! I have somehow fallen behind on keeping up with blogs and quilting. The next few days are promising and I need to get at least 2 tutorials done too! The rain is not inspiring me at all, but your quilt sur does.

Cathy said...

I’ve seen this layout before and love it! It sure looks yummy. It’ll be a piece of cake for you to finish it up!

It is just beautiful, Sandra! I need to put that block on my list for the future!

Yippee for sunshine. Just right to show off a rainbow quilt. And yet another inspiration for future RSC quilts. Actually, you've inspired me to go baste this year's.

LOVE your RSC quilt!

I love rainbow quilts, too, and this one turned out great! Can't wait to see your quilting idea, which is sure to be awesome!

Great job on completing the top! I was thinking of making another one of these with my 16 patch blocks....your's came out great.

Love your block placement - definitely a nice change of pace. Can't wait to see which way the quilting winds take you - never dull, that is for sure!

Great layout; enjoy the quilting!

Beautiful quilt Sandra - I love the colours. And here in St Catharines, I echo your concerns about the world, the States, and especially the province - it is all very worrying. But it is a beautiful, sunny morning here too, so we'll concentrate on that in the short term. Thanks for sharing your own rainbow!

Terrific! I love the way this block design uses a lot of squares to show off color. Liz in Houston

I'm with you for "sewing bright" to "feel bright"! Thanks for sharing your top. It is scrappy lovely. These are unsettling times, a great worry for me as I contemplate the future for my children.

GYP Sandra! Someone already claimed this quilt??!! I didn't even get my offer out there yet. Just wondering why this is an unconventional layout? I wasn't aware of the quilt police - maybe it's a Canada thing?!! HAHA! I'm enjoying this vein of writing so much, giggling away to myself. Anyhoo - I love how it turned out. As usual I can't wait to see your quilting plan, and if someone changes their mind about their claim I would be HAPPY to give this quilt a very good home. Happy Happy Sunday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

Louise said...

Great layout! I'm getting ready to start putting my RSC blocks together and I'm trying to break out of the strict "rainbow order" mode. I'll be eyeballing your placements for inspiration :)

Such a beautiful quilt and I can't think of a better layout. All the colors are so bright and they make me smile. When you know what's good you should just go for it!!

piecefulwendy said...

Sorry for not commenting, Sandra! I know I thought the layout looked great. Am completely curious about the new(?) squirrel keeping you company :-)

Liz said...

Very beautiful! I love the different tones of color, they're so jewel-like!

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...

I like the layout. Now I want to make this block. Must. Resist. There's too much out there to make. I'd need to quilt 24/7 in order to make my way through all the patterns I have in my possession and all the patterns I'd like to have. LOL

Loving the rainbow colors on this quilt and the scrappy neutral background! I'll be curious to see what quilting magic you have in store for this one. What ever it is...it will be beautiful!

It's really beautiful Sandra. I'm sure it feels good to get all that scrappy goodness together.
