Planning a rainbow quilt

We get our new house on 1st September, though the sewing room will probably not be operational until at least mid September.

As well as the 6PAC, I also want to make a simple rainbow quilt with 6 inch squares in a pattern something like this (found on pinterest).

Or maybe smaller squares with this layout

Either way should be fun.

New 6PAC Sew Along from ejvc

 New 6PAC sew along (Autumn 2021) – The Fabulous Dr. E's Fabulous Blog (wordpress.com)

I usually can't resist a 6PAC!

Having packed up all the fabric for moving, it was apparent how much I have.

So anything I sew really does need to come from the existing resources.

There was one combo I noticed whilst I was packing up.

Some stretch suiting in a cool brown with fine pink stripes, and a lovely knit fabric with a pink ground of blossoms and brown stems.

At least there I would have a top and trousers which co-ordinate, and then see where I go from that starting point.

Going forwards I want to be more mindful of the details, maybe zipped pockets in 'normal' trousers. I'm definitely in the 'pockets are good' camp.
