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!
