For my layout I chose to move diagonally through the rainbow from pink through violet to red, and then repeat the sequence, and have tried, with limited success, to have the lighter blocks at the top.
|Wednesday's provisional layout: before sorting on colour value|
When I laid my blocks out I decided I didn't need more than four pale blue blocks, so this week I have concentrated on filling the gaps in the pattern. With just three more blocks to make I've started adding I½" sashing strips to the right hand side of the blocks; I need to get them off the floor!
First the remaining two pale blue blocks, made last weekend
|Zig-zag & Road to Oklahoma (with sashing on the right)|
Both in photo above.
then two more purple
|Antique tile & Ceiling fan|

|Churn Dash & Contrary Wife|
Now added bottom right

Don't you love the King of the Rosehips?
and one orange
|Small bow ties; |
already made in green but with a different layout
with just one more orange and two pink blocks to make.
I have cheated a bit because I included the tan/whisky coloured browns with the orange, as they can indeed be construed as being dark orange. At least, that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
The layout is an unusual one I think: ten blocks wide by nine blocks long with 1" sashing. But that feels right to me for a lap quilt/ throw. I think I will make a single fairly narrow border.

so head over there to see more rainbow blocks.
