Brimfield Awakening in a Rainbow - Part One

I have had a Baby Brimfield Awakening pack for quite a while and I couldn't decide what fabric to use.  Then I got a set of Moroccan Bazaar strips from Island Batik and I knew I'd found the answer!

Here's my first block:

Isn't this rainbow just luscious?!

Playing with fabric placement for this was a bit of a challenge.  I needed more oranges so I added some scraps I had.

Here's the yellow and green block.

And the blue and purple block.

I drew lines on my fabric with Clover White Marking Pen (it irons off) to help align the blocks.  I then pinned them in place. (NOTE: the paper pieces had been removed at this point) I decided to machine baste my blocks into place with a large basting stitch.  I decided ultimately to hand applique these pieces because I wanted the thread to match.  It was a lot of starting and stopping, but it worked well.

I hope you get to quilt today!
