I love rainbows, they always make me smile! Lately I’ve been seeing them everywhere-from cake decorating to home decor. Big, bold slices of color. Many of the new fabrics on my wishlist are jewel tones. I particularly like the contrast of the bright colors against a clean, white background. So, I’ve been experimenting with rainbows and started using some of the fabrics I’ve stashed away, because I didn’t quite know how to use them. Colors like bright oranges & dark purples. I’m used to working with softer colors. Anyway, I came across a full-size quilt pattern with the 1/2 square log cabin, chevron pattern, set on point in rows and connected with small black & white checker-boards. It inspired me to create this little table runner. I foundation pieced the little chevrons, and used black, baby ric rac to connect them. The ric rac gives a similar look with out having to piece little, teeny, tiny checker-boards. I like piecing little details-but there’s no need to go crazy! I don’t know if this project is suitable for beginners, but I’m including step-by-step instructions with lots of pictures. If you have any questions, you can always e-mail me or leave a comment.
This is the best ‘How-To’ video concerning foundation piecing that I could find. My thanks to TheCraftGemini-
