Was Indigo misbehaving and sitting in the corner? :-) They look like a lot of fun... I might have to try something like this....

Inspiring, indeed!

Mama Urchin said...

I'm doing the same except mine are log cabins of course. I'm doing a whole color at a time so I've only gotten through red, orange, and yellow.

Roxanne said...

I was going to leave a smart comment about indigo too, but someone beat me to it...what color is indigo anyway?

Aimee said...

I like it a lot! Especially the purple. Well I guess it's technically violet, isn't it? :)
I know purple doesn't get used very much, but I do like it!

Roxanne said...

btw, I really like them!

mochaxlight said...

I've been wanting to do something like this for so long, but I don't have enough scraps. Gorgeous!

Nancy said...

What a clever use of color. I put this idea in my "To Do" file.

Christy (Columbia Lily) said...

love these!!!!!!!

Cheryl said...

AmandaJean, I had to do a little giggle at this post. I haven't seen ROYGBV for a long time. Love your blocks. Woman, you have the motherload of stash and you make some greast stuff with it.
Have a great weekend.

Andi said...

I just love it when you play.

Clair said...

Fun. I am going to be cutting my squares into trapezoids this weekend.

Farmyard Crafts said...

I'm a bit 'slow' this morning!! I was about to ask what is ROYGBV... but... I worked it out! Your ROYGBV looks great! Well done!

em's scrapbag said...

Very fun. You have given me an idea of what I can do with some rainbow blocks I got in a swap. I wanted to redo one. Thanks!

Amanda said...

Your posts always make me want to go sew something!

Fun! Fun! I was looking at something like this in one of my quilting books last night. Your version is a lot more fun though. :)

inkywu said...

Can someone help me!!!!. Yes. I am very very slow.
I really don't know what ROYGBV stand for.
Thank you.
Oh. Amandajean, i love the blocks. they are so much fun. but I am really stuck on the title.

hetty said...

Love your rainbow! Good idea. Kind of like a square colour wheel!

kath72 said...

You are just a hive of buzzing ideas! Your blogsite makes me drunk with excitement. I am finishing the binding on my very first quilt - thanks to you!! From Kath in Australia.

amandajean said...

Inkywu,

It stands for Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Purple. :0)

amandajean said...

Oops, Violet, not Purple.

M. Regina said...

Beautiful blocks. Hugs from Brazil

Dana said...

great minds think alike. i've been doing the same thing and plan on using my month of my quilting bee to build more blocks. i am including more gradation of color besides just ROY G BIV.

Can't wait to see your final result.

inkywu said...

Thank you. Amandajean. :) Now I got it. Gee I am slowww. Well. English IS my 2nd language. As long as I understand Quiltage I am fine. ;} I am going to enjoy your rainbow over the weekend.
Have a great weekend. Thank you.

Ann said...

I just adore the whole spectrum concept, and your scrappy approach is fresh, fun and yet sophisticated (but not fussy). Inspires me to get back to my sewing machine and just try something without worrying that I might fail.

Kelli said...

I've been thinking of doing a quilt with ROY G. BIV too! Of course you're ahead of me...I think for a long time before I get around to doing anything about it! Love it!
