I feel like it’s been awhile since I’ve shared a finished quilt in this space. After many, many, many hours of quilting straight lines, this one is finally complete. This Color Block Quilt is based off my Rainchino Rails quilt.
I wrote this pattern back in 2011 for Fat Quarterly. For my Color Block version, I eliminated the white sashing and just increased the width of the strips by 1″. You can still buy the issue with the pattern on the Fat Quarterly website.
I debated between mixing up my fabrics or dividing them into sections, and I’m happy I ended up doing the latter. I just love color blocking! I mentioned in my last post about this quilt, I quilted straight lines using the edge of my foot as a guide. I used the dual feed on my Bernina 750QE for the entire thing – about 170 lines!
You may recall in my post on straight line quilting that I was getting “off” results from the walking foot – but I encourage you to check back at that post. It’s all working fabulously now, just tweaked my settings a bit.
The backing is a beautiful Fig Tree & Co print from their California Girl line. The binding is from Zen Chic’s Comma line. This quilt measures 60″ x 68″. It’s actually a gift, going to a very special home in the next few weeks. I can’t wait to send it off!
