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 1

Square a Day - Orange

I’m going to try to make a block each day for a new quilt.  Let’s be honest though, I have a 4 month old, 2-1/2 year old….and a husband (3rd child anyone?  LOL) so it may be a block every few days!  I’m just designing this as I go, so I’m not sure what the end result will be, but I’m pretty excited about digging into all my fabrics.  I’m inspired by Denyse Schmidt’s Drunk Love in a Log Cabin and Ashley from Film in the Fridge’s quilt. Today’s theme was orange!
