Look What I Made: Rainbow Quilt

It’s crazy to think of how much has changed for me since I started collecting squares of fabric with the idea of making a rainbow quilt back in 2011. Perhaps I should make a prediction now about what the next three years will hold for me, just to see how wrong I am! One thing remains the same, I love fabric and yarn rainbows!

Vital Stats:

Finished quilt number seven
Finished size – 130cm x 105cm
Quilt top – 180 squares from my stash, with a couple from my friend Leonie
Batting – 100% cotton
Backing – One piece of aqua fabric – “Bijoux” a Stonehill Collection by Donna Wilder for Fabric Traditions 2012 (It was an extremely tight squeeze to get the backing to fit the quilt, but thankfully it worked out!)
Quilting –  Two vertical lines parallel to each vertical seam
Binding – 1/4 inch double fold cross-grain hand sewn binding
