Rainbow Block

After learning about the color wheel today, Donna introduced the idea of making a rainbow block for charity. 
 Sample Block for Joy Circle January   do.Good Stitches
These instructions make 2 (two) 12 1/2” blocks. You can choose how many you'll make for our charity children's quilt.  Participation optional!!  But we'd love to see what you come up with!

Cut each square 3 1/2” square
2 red 
4 orange 
6 yellow 
8 green 
6 blue
4 purple
2 black 

Red is in the lower left corner and the black is in the upper right corner. Try to choose bright happy fabrics and a few prints sprinkled in since this is a child's quilt.

Sew together like the photo using a 1/4" seam.
Needs to measure 12 1/2"
