Rainbow Bright by Ngaire

During the last couple of months we have had a few good downpours followed by some lovely bright rainbows.
Here is my version of one of those rainbows.

BRIGHT Circles from Lynn

Recently, I did a workshop with Kerry using some of her special rulers, and one involved cutting and inserting circles into a background fabric. Bright fabric circles seemed appropriate for this challenge.
Here are some inserted circles, machine pieced and quilted.
Enjoy all your little quilts, Kay.

Bright Kiwis by Anna

It seems that words are the 'in' thing at the moment. I was given the bright Kiwi fabric so thought it was ideal.  Hope you enjoy receiving our quilts Kay and I loved using fabrics other than black and white for this next round of quilts. 
By Mary for Kay

Hi Kay
Of course it had to be flowers - I can't seem to get away from them but am dabbling with other things.
This is a result of our art quilt group where we used free machine couching to have a bit of fun.
I enjoyed using my growing collection of cords and threads - must stop collecting them.

Enjoy your quilts!

I had lots of 'bright' ideas for this challenge but decided to be quite literal and use bright fabrics for the word BRIGHT. I quilted the background before I added the applique. And this time I had my little quilt finished in the first week instead of leaving it until the last week!!

"The bright side of life" stitched by Margie

Such a joyful theme, Kay. It immediately brought to mind the lyrics from Monty Python  “Always look on the bright side of life”  by Eric Idle:

If life seems jolly rotten there’s something you’ve forgotten
And that’s to
 laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you’re feeling in the dumps don’t be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle – that’s the thing.
Always look on the bright side of life

Helix By Kerry

Apologies for the lateness of my posting Lorraine. I had fun with this little quilt, DNA was not the thought that had been in my head the last 3 months it was to be blood, but the lack of ink in my printer made me re think the Design and I am really glad I did. Loved couching the outline and as always enjoyed using variegated thread. On its way to you today. Now that's completed need to think about Kay's Bright.
