Progress: Rain or Shine

I guess I forgot to blog about this quilt. I started these blocks back in May, but didn't get much farther than cutting all of the squares. I spent a little time on it this past week, and I'm really excited to see a quilt starting to take shape.

Progress: Rain or Shine

Using fun fabrics like these makes me happy, especially after long work days like I've been experiencing this summer. I have many more blocks to make, but I'm happy to make a little bit of progress on it.

The pattern for this quilt is by Elizabeth Hartman, from her awesome book. Oh, and if you haven't already seen this, Kaelin's version of Rain or Shine is incredible!

  1. i love the colors you're using. the black really makes the other colors pop.

    i love that pearl bracelet fabric so much. i used all of my blue fabric, so i had to buy some more in brown and green from the newest collection.

  5. Oh my god, how cool are those?! I think my favorite square is the one in the middle on the bottom. I think the black is really bold.
