Rainbow Scrap Challenge time! April's fabric "color" is multicolor. You know, those fabrics you look at and can't decide what pile they go in. There might be lots of color, but no one color stands out.
Here's my village of houses for this month.
This one was obvious, with its stripes of green, pink, orange, black, blue, etc. And at last I can use my black-with-pink-dots.
This house is not made of Easter fabric, despite the obvious bunnies. These happy little animals are supposedly going to school. Does that make this a schoolhouse?
Here's a golden oldie fabric, with tulips and a big red goose. It reminds me of a house in my neighborhood. The homeowners keep a concrete goose by the front porch, and change out its "clothes" with the season.
This one is a quilter's home. (Every neighborhood needs one, right?) Three different quilts make up the house. I finally managed to get the hearts going right in the "sky". You can tell this is a happy place.
Here's the before picture for this block. Kind of dull, in spite of the wacky prism fabric of the house.
So I did a little remodeling. I replaced the roof with scissors fabric, and the sky with spools of thread. Not very calm anymore, but less boring.
Speaking of boring, I'm afraid my second set of rainbow challenge quilt blocks is a little on the sedate side.
It was hard to find multicolor fabrics in my 1930s repros or my feedsacks.
It seems like the only multicolor ones had white backgrounds, and just wouldn't play nice with any other prints.
This is the wackiest one. Do you see the pineapples?
The other two are florals:
The Buckeye Beauty quilt will be more subdued than the house quilt, and that's okay.
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't.
Happy Earth Day! Wishing you sunshine and rainbows this week,
