One Block Wonders BMO... Our Last Block......Rainbow Stacks

This post has been so hard to write....I have actually been dragging my feet (without even realizing),  trying to avoid writing it.....

Not because of the block pattern, because I love it ...but because it's our last month and even though I know it's time, I'm still a bit sad by it's ending....


We still have this month and I plan to enjoy every minute of it till it's over!!


I'm putting aside the twinge of sadness 

(and scrambling to write this post at the last minute, and I mean last minute...)


With so much to celebrate this month, it certainly makes that easier to do....

I know there are some who do not like to paper piece, so I apologize that we are ending with just that, a paper pieced pattern, but if you have every wanted to give it a try.....

again or for the first time, I think this is the pattern for you....

The Rainbow Stacks Quilt Pattern can be found in my Craftsy Pattern Shop! 

Sandy@UpStairs HobbyRoom

The pattern includes full instructions and 4 different sized blocks

I have written a

paper pieced tutorial here

, if you need a resource or refresher....

I found it helpful to label the areas lightest and darkest in the triangular areas 

to keep track of shade placements.

 Once your 2 stacks are made and trimmed,  you will sew them together along the straight bottom edge with a 1/4"seam. I remove the paper before sewing, but sewers choice...I know some totally sew their blocks together before removing any of the paper.

 I forgot to trim the notched the corners of the pattern before removing the paper on the left, but makes for a good comparison....

 Check your block for squareness and trim if necessary!!

Well that was easy....

So you want to make more, Right??

Well why not when this is what could happen!! (with a small border)


And there are so many possibilities with block layout and colour placements....

Can't wait to see what you come up with!!
