Quilt Guild 9-patch exchange

It's always an adventure to take part in a guild activity and this one was something I had wanted to do for a long time. So many quilt shows I've been to have had quilts made from 9-patch exchanges and it was only a matter of time before I was able to be part of such an exchange.
 Every month, we had a colour and were to bring 10 nine patch blocks made from that colour. Our exchange hosts were particular that these were pieced accurately and it made the end product so much easier. In return for the 10 blocks we brought, we received 10 all different ones back. So in effect, we brought 10 the same and got 10 different in the same colours.
 These sat for a while in my unfinished pile, and all I knew is that I wanted the end result to be a rainbow quilt. When I finally put the blocks up on the design wall, I realized I would need to make a few more of some colours and had extra of others.
I found this great rainbow fabric for a border and it's all ready to get quilted as soon as I find a backing fabric that will be as awesome as the front.

All in all, this was a pretty easy quilt to put together and I have a few extra blocks to begin the next version!
