I've been meaning to post this up here for a while, and finally getting around to it now.

So I made this rainbow skirt out of quilting squares.  I based it on the AMAZING skirt Crafty Intentions made here - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=259659.0.  The only reason this skirt exists is because she was brilliant enough to do it first.  If you're reading this, Crafty Intentions, thank you!

Essentially, I crafted the same basic layout she did, using 4x4 squares and a 1.5 increase of square number per row.  I loved Craft Intention's idea of doing a wide waist, so I started with a wide-ish waist so that it would fit a variety of waists (read: so my 6 foot tall sister could wear it, too, if she wanted).  That meant that my lowest row, in dark blue, was over 540 squares long!  It was a very long-term project, because there was only so much I could stand to do in one sitting when there were literally over a thousand squares to quilt together and to ruffle.

I did use a different color order.  My colors were:
2 layers white
light green
light blue
purple
pink
red
orange
yellow
dark green
dark blue

On to the skirt!  Sitting:

And the obligatory TWIRLING SHOTS:





There's no way you can be sad when you're wearing a skirt with rainbows that twirls like this does!

Twirling has got to be the best part of something like this skirt.

Beautiful! I wish I had the sewing skill AND the patience to do something like this!

Enjoy wearing it, but don't get too dizzy with all the swirling that you are bound to do!
