Rainbow challenge

I've managed to kill two birds with one stone with this quilt. The challenge this month is to use white with other colours, so I've combined it with the yellow blocks I made for a previous month's challenge, though I had to add in a few orange squares to make it large enough. It's come out at a lap quilt size, which will add to the pile of lap quilts I'm making from scraps for donation to a local old people's home.

I've made this little star - it finishes at about four inches - to send to the child that I sponsor through World Vision out in Ethiopia.

Oohhhhh! I LIKE that quilt Amanda! The colors remind me of a sunrise. Nice finish.

Your 'white' quilt is really pretty! I'm always put off using white in patterns as so very often it looks really mawkish, whereas it should look crisp and bright- well yours looks just right! And your Ethiopian child will love the star!

Lovely yellow scraps. They look so fresh and modern with the white in between.

The yellows and oranges are so pretty, very fall-ish.

There is just something about yellow and white that says fresh and cheery - love it! Cute little star too!
