Rainbow Block Quilt


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?”

Well, I couldn’t resist being a bit creative today.  I know I have 2 quilts that are almost to the quilting stage and I have 2 others in the pipeline with fabric and patterns just sitting there….but what’s one more, right?

I’m envisioning a quilt with many of these blocks and sashing between them. The colors are so bright and fun, I’m pretty excited about this one.  It is inspired by this beautiful quilt by Red Pepper Quilts.
