Rainbow Addiction ?

Have you seen this image around blogland?

Some time ago now Rachel over at Stitched in Color started her Bottled Rainbow ticker tape quilt-along on her blog.  I have always wanted to do one so I have decided that in the new year I will!  I have never done any "ticker-tape" quilting so it will be a learning experience for me also.  First things first ... solids.  On her blog a few days ago she had a link to a F/Q bundle with 16 solids....great, hard work done for me! lol  So I have hit the by now and they are on their way.  If you are interested the Link is HERE

The bundle includes Fat Quarters of each of the 16 Kona Cotton Solids as recommended by Rachel (the original colours not the updated ones as seen on her Baby Bottled Rainbow)

I know that "technically" I do not need another project to work on but this one will be more of a long term one that will use scraps.......and I LOVE using scraps ....... why save them if you don't use them :o)

I will be sure to share a photo of my purchase with you when they arrive :)
I am excited to be playing with color like this in the new year :o)

I am also linking up for the first Friday Night Sew In for December tonight.
Not sure what I will be working on yet ... I will think about that in a couple of hours :o)
Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Sharon
