The good thing about having several projects underway at all times is that when your energy/space/time is limited there's always something you can work on. The Rainbow quilt has been good for me this week because I could work on it in bits of time when I had the energy. Eventually I got it done!
It's king sized and for the moment I have it draped over the guest bed. I seriously love this quilt.
Finding that this quilt back will fit was a stroke of good luck.. This is folded in quarters and the lime area is the center. The motif of squares works great with the front. I dyed this for another project and it didn't work out. I'm glad it's going to work out for this one.
When I started making the Rainbow quilt I picked a lot of fabric and cut it all out. I got so carried away that I have enough blocks for a lap quilt! I laid this out on the floor last night so I wouldn't have to plan it at the next sewing with my quilt club.
I have all of the rows clipped and read to sew next month.
There are even more blocks left over! I'll plan a baby quilt or something with these and the scraps from all the cutting after I finish the lap quilt.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
