Rain Forest quilt progress

 I have all the blocks sewn that I am going to sew for this one, because this is all the fabric I have of these colors, of batiks.  Maybe the greens are forest leaves and fern fronds...maybe the earth tones are just that, earth! And maybe the blue is water in a rain forest!!!  I would love to see a rain forest someday and find out if these colors are true.
This is an old quilt.  I love it!  Scraps...scrap X, free on Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville site.  I have so many plans to make more, more, more quilts using this pattern...it is super fun!!!




I vacuumed, swept and mopped, changed linens and towels, generally picked up, did laundry, and tried to get my car inspected.  It failed!  I looked under the engine compartment and a hose was loose on the air intake....darn.  I need to get the inspection done again...sigh....



Hope you are having a great day!!

Rain Forest is a great name for this quilt in those soothing colors!
My goodness, you are amazing in the number of scrap quilts you have created. You may even rival Bonnie Hunter! : )

Leeanne said...

I agree that is the perfect name for the first quilt!

Rain Forest gives a calm and reassuring vibe, and I love it!

WOW!!!! You cleaned the house AND finished up a quilt? Superwoman! Love the new top and the colors.

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Love both quilts--you did a great job on them--
one of the reasons I don't have a car--is you just could not keep one up to par!!!
but I miss having my own wheels--alot!!!
I could use some help on the cleaning house project--that seems to be on hold--
as some quilting projects have demanded my attention--
enjoy the moments, di

Love those quilts. Do you need more batiks? I might have some...hehehe... not sewing with them these days and happy to share!

Cleaning? Way over-rated.

Hope you get the inspection taken care of. Got to have the cars running!!

Perfect name, Rain Forest. It has a quiet soothing look. Sorry about your car, but at least you have a quilt done and a clean house.

Your rain forest quilt is so beautiful! I love those colors too but they remind me of the beach...the blue and green of the water and the tan color of the sand. :0)

Your quilts are so colorful and vibrant, full of life. I have done several of Bonnie's Scrap X quilts and, somehow, it never seems to make a dent in my strip bin! Ha!! I suppose it's time to make a few more. Happy Easter!

I like that first quilt especially. You have probably said before the name of the pattern, but would you mind telling me again. Thanks!
