    DD, I have Rainbow Frost, Rainbow Jewels, Touch the Rainbow, Rainbow Forest, Rainbow Taffy, Rainbow Magic, Rainbow Bright, and Rainbow Confetti. And the pattern is call The Confetti Quilt to make up a couple of the packets into, at least originally. Packets are several years old, not new.

    I might try to work in about three or four packets, a more intense color with a lighter shade since there are 12 blocks. The dark pieces can work in where they need to be and I can 'play' with the lights the same way. Background will be a Kona Creme or Butter...letting the blocks shine on their own rights.

    My computer has not been playing nice today it kept kicking me out, is anyone trying to tell me something

    QuiltE, spoke to DD today and I "think" she is going to go with Mirab'sDD, that one is winning so far. I will see her on Saturday, we are going shopping (not for fabric either). I asked her to take a photo of her fabric cupboard as she is more anal than me. All her lengths are pressed and folded onto trouser hangers so she can hang 5 lengths, (this can be anything from 2 to 5 yards) on the same hanger and she has a lot of hangers

    Good name! Her anality is all good for you ... you can know that it's all prepped and ready, when you steal it away! Though she's probably only doing what she learned from HerDearOl'Ma!

    Oh I haven't been on the board for a while and so glad I checked this today! I am IN! I need another project like I need a hit on the head lol, but these Are beautiful blocks and I love PP..can't pass it up haha. Thanks Honchey for starting and leading this.

    I see some beautiful fabrics being selected..I think I am going to go scrappy with a contsant background.Hey, maybe a black background with my bright scraps..we shall see. Although I don't think I'll get started until late September as there is sew much going on the next two months.

    Lookimg forward to this!

    DD, the name of the fabric says it all Go for it. I'm going to wait with the corner triangles and borders till all blocks are finished.

    "mumstealsmystash" comes down to msms or maybe "mumsteasmystashddstealsitback" equals msmsddsib. Mirabelle. Or least its worth a good laugh for both of you.

    So this started in April? At least that is what is on the website. 5 blocks from April - Aug 2013. Will it begin over in September or will this group be using the blocks from the earlier months? Yeah, I'm confused, but it doesn't take much these days....

    AND I couldn't find the fabric amounts. If it's already been posted here, sorry -- I skimmed the last 4 pages but didn't read in depth.

    Belfrybat, the Quilt on the Square started it earlier, but we are not starting until September 3rd, making two a month, so we will finish with QOTS, I think....that is the way of it. Others may agree or disagree, as I have been confused before but the PC riders know how to straight me out, so I don't worry about small details anymore. They are great to 'ride' the quilt trails with, just trust, ask, and someone will help the rest of us.
