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!

    This is amazing. I love it. Seriously! This just makes me want to quilt and quilt…it’s 1:30 am though, so I’ll have to wait till tomorrow, haha.

    How long did it take you to quilt this?

      If only there were more time in the day, right?? It took about 3-4 hours to quilt. I was expecting 3-4 DAYS, so I was happy! 🙂

    Nice! I know you said in one of your posts that Film in the Fridge is one of your inspirations…she’s one of mine too! Do you have a favorite of hers?
