I made this quilt using some “Remix” lollies fabric by Jen Kingwell for Moda.
I know this isn’t the way most people use a lollie, but I wanted to include the black and white dividing lines and to make the colors very random. The randomness didn’t really work out- there’s a lot of gold in this! I’ll cut it differently when I use the rest.
Here’s that finished Rainbow quilt, made from WoF strips appliqued to the background. The rainbow wanted to be round, so it is. I’m sure I’ll make another version of this. The rainbow is textured from the stretching, but in a nice way.
This week: + 0 yards, – 3.25 yards
This year: + 61.25 yards, – 84.5 yards
Total destashed / added in 2020: 23.25 yards
This quilt (but not Yuri!) will be for sale in my Etsy shop.
This one-block quilt is a new direction for me, and I like the result. I would tweek some things for another one, making the rainbow taller and thinner. I was just happy when I figured out how to make a rainbow without resorting to giant applique or curved piecing.
I decided to make this baby quilt (36″ x 42″) after seeing examples of earth-tone rainbows for nurseries on Pinterest and Etsy.
Also, I was looking for a use for a couple of fabrics from the “When Skies are Gray” line, like these umbrellas.
I intended to narrow strips of more fabrics to make the stripes, but I found the perfect colors in my 2.5 strip container.
The quilting is sort of a clamshell. I hope it suggests clouds. I like the look, but I think this quilt could have used a little more quilting. The good news is that I got my stitch regulator working, so that made life easier.
