Bottled Rainbow Quilt Along *Ocean Block*





Block #2 is finished! 

However, I feel like I really need to get a Butler Bulldog scrap to add to this block.  My friends and I stayed up until about 1am watching the Bulldogs win and make it into the Sweet Sixteen!  Since their colors are Blue & White, I think it would be a perfect fit.



Indiana is a HUGE basketball state and whenever one our teams is doing well, the town goes a little crazy.  Butler has now made it to the Final Four, so we are excited about the game this Saturday.  The best part, for me, about watching these games is that one of my oldest friends' husband is the assistant coach at Butler, so it is fun to try to watch for them on TV.



Here are the first two blocks next to each other.  Good things there is no deadline on this one because I am definitely taking my sweet time!

  17. I googled bottled rainbow quilt and found your blog. I'm just learning about this wonderful idea and have collected all my materials. I can't wait to start my own. Your blocks are beautiful. I hope I can be as patient as you and have so many small pieces on mine!
