Every year right around St. Patrick’s Day the creative world starts posting rainbows.
So many rainbows!
Rainbow cookies, rainbow quilts, rainbow crafts – and my favorite – groups of things made in rainbow colors.
I love rainbows!
I have a Pinterest board of rainbows!
But somehow I’m never on the ball enough to make a new rainbow for St. Patrick’s Day.
I’ve made rainbows before.
I love this rainbow scrap quilt I made for the Dress Up Bunch dolls.
And this people-sized quilt I made for a Craft Hope donation. (That link goes to a free how-to.)
You can go small with quilted rainbows too.
I love this rainbow chevron pillow I made when I reviewed the book Quilting Happiness. (That pillow lives on my couch right now.)
And this pillow is one of my favorite projects from the Big Stitches and Patchy Patchwork class.
I have a couple of rainbow embroidery patterns. I love the rain in this free Raining Rainbows pattern. . .
And the Rainbow Girls always make me smile.
These coasters (there’s a free pattern here) were so much fun to make. Rainbows AND polkadots! What could be better?
And Roy is my favorite of all of Stacey’s monsters.
But groups of the same thing made in a rainbow of color are my favorite – and I’ve only done that once.
It was so much fun making all these little guys for the Mischief of Mice cover!
So – I need to do it again.
I even put it right at the top of my list for the month. 🙂
I’m not done yet – but here’s a little peek. Picking colors is always fun. . .
Safety eyes look so creepy from the inside. . .
This is looking much better, no?
I’m working on a whole rainbow of these little cuties. (It’s the Freddie Bear pattern – very easy and fun.) And I’ll be finished before St. Patrick’s Day! 🙂
If you decide to make a rainbow too – please post it in the Shiny Happy People group or tag it in social media with #shinyhappyworld! I can’t wait to see!
