Rainbow Block Quilt

Front

I’ve finished my Block of the Day Quilt – now known as my Rainbow Block Quilt! I am really excited with how this one turned out. It’s so bright and fun! The blocks are each unique and it’s such a beautiful sampling of so many designer’s fabrics. I used white sashing (Bella Solids) and I think it really makes the blocks pop. I used coordinating fabrics for a fun stripe on the back.

I quilted this free motion style and used a Denyse Schmidt floral from Katie Jump Rope. The final size measures 48″ x 62″.

I could really see this quilt on a toddler bed, but that’s probably because I have two young kids myself and see everything through a mom’s eyes. It’d be perfect to cuddle under on the couch as well!

I’ve decided to start selling some of my quilts in an Etsy shop! I figured it would justify all the time I’ve been spending on this hobby. And answer my husband’s question of “what are you going to do with another quilt?”

ETA: Thanks for helping my photo make Flickr Explore for September 17th, 2009!

Block a Day : Day 9

My second blue block!  I’ve also ordered a couple yellow and orange fabrics for those blocks, so I’m waiting on that to arrive before I start them.

Block a Day : Day 5

Block a Day Green

Green!

I also managed to find time yesterday to finish the back of the patchwork throw.  It’s currently on the floor in my bedroom waiting to be pinned into a quilt sandwich.  Hopefully I have time today, but I have a few hairclip orders to get out so that will take precedence.

Block a Day : Day 4

Block a Day Yellow

This sunny block is a perfect way to start off the week.  I can’t get enough of the Denyse Schmidt and American Jane fabrics.

If all the stars align today during naptime, I’m going to work on the back of my patchwork throw.  Hopefully I can start quilting that this week.
