Rainbow stars assembled - two flimsy finishes

Its hot now and it was hot when I was on holidays and I needed to sew!  Rummaging around in my stash (which is kept all over the house) looking for my Rainbow Scrappy Challenge blocks, which I haven't worked on in months! :(  For January, red was the designated colour and I could not get motivated - which is odd as I love red!
But all of these beautiful colours are calling me - and there are so many 8" star blocks I figure I am done with making more of these  and should just put them together.  Easier said then done, as I have more of one colour then others.  Which makes a diagonal layout a better choice then rows and I am thrilled with the finished size 56" x 56" which is a row longer then I expected - just enough of the bright colours to keep this beauty sparkling!
WOW I am in LOVE with this quilt!  Yep need to make another one!  Perhaps I am not done with these star blocks at all!
OK perhaps that pattern is just not going to work for me again right NOW as I have used all the good colours up like, orange and lime green ;(
So I pull out all the pink (because for some reason I have a whole lotta pink) stars and then decide its time to put my RSC four patches to work also.  I really tried to make a chain block work in between the stars but I didn't have enough of one colour.
So I went with this layout in yellow and aqua/pale blue.  
A perfect border print found during my day trip to Warrnambool at Periwinkle Patchwork finishes off this cute cot quilt.  
Happy quilting Sue.


  1. Two great tops from your rainbow blocks. I am especially partial to the first top, as I love a riot of all colors! :)

  2. Sue these are gorgeous!!!!! I love the rainbow stars

  3. Your rainbow stars are wonderful. The diagonal setting is a must. Hope the weather cools off a little for you.

  4. Two beautiful tops, I love them both. Well done!
    We are all hanging out for autumn, I think.

  5. Both tops are really very pretty, but the first one is fantastic! ---"Love"
