I love rainbows!

Just look at this rainbow of beautiful fabrics I received this week as a participant in the Color Wheel Charms Swap.

Many thanks Kati, for organizing such a gorgeous swap and to all the other participants that have such great taste in fabric!  This was the first time for me to be a part of a group swap and only the third time I've had charms to work with (see what I made with my first and second set of charms here and here).
From the moment I took the charms out of the package they arrived in, I started playing with them.  I couldn't resist all those colours. What a feast for the eyes! You're looking at 112 fabrics in the photo  above.  I would never be able to gather these exact fabrics locally.   Lots of ideas for using them are bubbling through my brain.  My quilting journal  has some sketch ideas just waiting for me to grab these charms and get stitching a rainbow project or two.

  1. That's quite a brilliant idea for a swap - I bet it was a lot of work, but heavens, what a gorgeous variety of fabrics! They'll be a lot of fun to work on during the long dreary winter we have coming up!
