I had hoped to get a batch of bowtie blocks done, but they are not ready to show yet. I was out of town for most of the past week and have fallen behind on my rainbow projects, but it was so worth it to spend time with family!
Since there is so little of my own to show, I will share some quilt show photos. Yesterday I went to the "Georgia Celebrates Quilts" show presented by the East Cobb Quilters' Guild. This show happens every other year, and there are always many wonderful quilts to see. Since our RSC color for June is light blue, I wanted to share this lovely sampler in blues.

This bowtie quilt really caught my attention. The rainbow bowtie blocks I have been making all year will finish at 4". The bowties in this quilt measure only 2"! Love this setting for the blocks.

Here are some of my favorite rainbow quilts from the quilt show:

|"Lone(ly) Rainbow" by Pam Cobb|
Honorable Mention, Modern
|"Rainbow Explosion" by Jan Cunningham and Bella Bamert|

I hope I credited the correct names and prizes on all of the quilt show photos. Sometimes I forget to get an extra photo of the tag with that info. These are all a wonderful source of inspiration, and I congratulate every one of them!
Check out all of the terrific scrappy rainbow projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
