Another bright and rainbow colored June pattern? What?

Don’t adjust your screen, it is! I loved last year’s 2018TSAP June square so much that I knew I had to do another rainbow one for this year. I had to sit down and wrack my brain a bit to think how I could incorporate rainbows to June’s square. I didn’t really want to JUST add a rainbow to the cup or something (which isn’t a bad thing and I might do that for December’s square with a snowflake). And one day I thought “ok, what’s at the end of the rainbow? Coffee, naturally!”

And that’s the mysterious story behind this month’s square. Wasn’t that a wild ride? Ok, I know it wasn’t but sometimes I want to give you a bit of a peek into my creative process. It’s not all that exciting, it’s usually me writing ideas or scribbling nonsense until I get a good idea.

Anyway…
I really like this month’s square and I hope you do too! It’s perfect for June’s Pride month celebration and all you always tried people. It’s a fun square, even if it is a bit messy to make when you’re working with all those pieces of yarns. I suggest you just sit in one spot and don’t move until the square is done (which is what I did, it was easier I swear).
I do hope you love this pattern and I can’t wait to see all the pictures!
