I'm starting off the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge for 2018 with a revamp of one of my projects from last year--the dresden plate lion. As I made this lion head today, I took lots of pictures and made notes so I should have a tutorial for it up sometime this week.
Here's the version from last year. I wasn't too happy with the lion's body...it seemed like too much work without adding much to the design.
So instead, I plan to make a Rainbow Dandy Lion quilt. In the original, the circular mane was cut into an octagon with tilted heads. This is my current plan although I may try squares and other shapes.
And new for this year are postage stamps. This design calls for 19 four by four blocks. The postage stamps finish at one inch square.
Last year I made a pink postage stamp doll quilt and realized this would make a wonderful large block for the rainbow challenge. I will use a consistent beige/white fabric to tie the quilt together, but I don't know what fabric I will use yet.
And last but not least, Molly would like to inspire you to look forward to a brilliant new year where all of your knick knacks are knocked to the ground in an exquisite demonstration of gravity.
