bug jar quilt tutorial.
This is the original "bottled rainbows" quilt from Angela Pingel's blog Cut to Pieces
And then more thinking about bugs and rainbows ensued...
What about a different paper-pieced bug in each jar?
Like this dragonfly and bee from Megan at megsmonkeybeans
Or a ladybug (with pattern and tutorial!) from Teri Emerson at handiwerx
But then, how would the bugs "stand out" against the various scrappy background fabrics in each jar? Or would each bug be made in one of the rainbow colors, with a dark or neutral for the jar, and each jar's frame (background?) be a continuation of that block's assigned rainbow color?
And what about using a rainbow stripe fabric (one such fabric last seen on Oakie's visor)? Does that have any place in a "rainbow bug jar" quilt?
Wild ideas, for sure.
