A Few More Quilt Blocks

...and now I'm done. I let myself get carried away making these 12-1/2" blocks for the Rainbow Around the Block project, with a grand total of 31 blocks made. I found it really is easier to make at least 2 of one design if possible, and it doesn't really take that much longer than making one. But I'm not telling quilters anything they don't already know.

I did manage to scrounge up some orange bits to make two blocks in honor of any University of Tennessee fans living in Nashville. These 2 blocks took up the majority of my orange fabric that isn't specifically a fall or Halloween design.

This blue one is more youthful, and I love the brightness of it:
But I think out of all of them, this is my favorite:
For pictures of more of my blocks, and the blocks of other quilters, take a look at the Group Pool of photos on

If you feel the urge to use up some scraps, and make some of your own 12-1/2" blocks for the project, the deadline for submitting them is September 1. You can mail them to:
Anna Maria Horner
1730 Old Hickory Blvd
Brentwood, Tn. 37027
And now, I'll be back to making muslins.
