WIPx2 – Roller Rink Baby Quilt

I actually have two (ok, a half dozen) WIP this week.

We will be moving some time next year and I want everyone to have a new quilt by the time we move. Alex is done, so I thought I’d do something easy for Zoe in between the larger Hazel and master bedroom quilt. This is Elizabeth Hartman’s Roller Rink pattern from her Modern Patchwork book. I already did most of the cutting for it when Ms. Viking went into the shop in July.

I’m going for a rainbow….but….do I go left to right in the colors all the way across? I’m going to need, for just numbers of blocks, more colors one way or another than there are in the rainbow…should I put a white at the top and a gray at the end?

My photos are so dang blurry when I take them at night. Boo.

Also, I don’t have nearly as much orange in my stash as I would have thought, but I will say, doing a rainbow of colors really makes you go through what you have!!! I have a thorough understanding of my stash and have been purging quite a bit. Fall cleaning!

That photo is better. I’m using Robert Kaufman yarn dyed linen in Flax with a Kona white to keep it neutral. I think in Hartman’s book she used a taupe/tan and white for the scrappy sample and it seemed better than gray for a girl’s baby quilt to me.

I have about eight pairs now, with about four more to go. Do I fill in here and there with one color in particular or begin and end with ‘cloud’ colors?
