Time out from my progress - let's see what you've been up to! Last time I visited the Stitched in Color flickr group I found lots of lovely Bottled Rainbow blocks...

|Angela's using her favorite scraps|
And then there's Miss Jacey, who's every block is a literal mosaic masterpiece.
See what I mean! I think I particularly love Jacey's blocks because my original vision was to use little, random sized pieces like this just to avoid throwing them away. But, in the end, I opted for a more "clean lines" look partly to protect my sanity. Jacey's putting a ton of love and time into these beauties. It's a treat to follow!
You also have to see the blocks made by Val of Pink Please! Hers have a playful "I-spy" flavor.
Gotta love it! I'm not always a fan of "I-spy" things, because I can get overwhelmed by all the action. But done in color groups like this I find all the diversity more lively than run wild. Great twist, Valerie!
Speaking of twists...
Can you find the race car? Of course!
What about the sewing machine here? Very near and dear to our hearts!
These blocks were both created by Candice. She dived right into Bottled Rainbows with her own, unique "hidden pictures" concept. She must have had a ball, because her blocks are already done:
Wow! There are lots of things I didn't see coming when I launched the Bottled Rainbows quilt along back in February. And this is definitely one of them! Thanks, Candice!
It has been an absolute honor to sew with you all. Thank-you for keeping me company. Thank-you for inspiring me with your creativity. Thank-you for making it so much fun!
I know there are folks just getting started and folks still wanting to get started. Please keep adding your creations to the flickr pool. I totally want to see! Also, I've received some requests about where you can buy the Bottled Rainbows Kona solids set as a bundle. Those are offered and in stock here at Marmalade Fabrics.
Have a wonderful weekend, friends!
