Darting Rainbows



Have you ever noticed how birds come out after a rainstorm, almost at the same time as rainbows are forming?? The other day, I was watching some of these birds dance through the skies, swirling and whirling. I think they were swallows swarming a nearby field. This crazy dance they do is called Murmuration. They are quite noisy while create this aerial display. This phenomenon was in my mind when I came across the simple darting birds block.

I was able to pair this idea with my latest challenge to play with a prism of fabrics – Timeless Treasure’s Tonga Brightside.  I love the combination it created for Darting Rainbows!
