Bottled Rainbows

What started out as this:

The first block I tried
Blocks laid out, ready for my little artists to help out

Ready for basting and quilting


I made a huge mistake cutting the zig zag fabric on the bias,
so I went with the black dots instead!

Has become this:



Thank you, Rachel for coming up with this amazing idea!
I love storing my small fabric scraps in old jars, 
and I'm so happy with my Bottled Rainbows Quilt!
The finished blocks are 10 inches square,
which makes this quilt a perfect size to hang on the wall above my sewing machine.
