Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Rainbow Rows Quilt

This week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I worked on my little red four-patches for the Rainbow Rows Quilt by Lissa Alexander.   The little squares are cut one and a half inches, Lissa’s instructions call for 115 of the red four-patches for the queen quilt, I completed 137.  I made a few more of each colour with the intention of also making a crib size quilt.

Only grey and orange four-patches left to complete the four-patches and then I can begin piecing the quilt top, so now I’m wondering what colour Angela at soscrappy will be picking for the month of August.

I thought these little squares could use some red support, so I’m including a picture with the red Gerbera daisies that my friend Wanda gave me to celebrate my birthday earlier this month.  The tile behind the daisies was a gift from my friend Leslie, it says Joy in Chinese characters, although I just realize that it is upside down – opps.
