Rainbow Baby

IMG_4205

This was such a fun quilt to make.  I had a few quiet hours to sew and there’s nothing like a simple quilt for some (semi) instant gratification.  It used up some of the small strips hidden in my fabric piles  I couldn’t bear to throw into the scrap bin just yet.

I can’t wait to quilt this one…I’m thinking free motion swirls…maybe even small loops.  I have the tutorial almost all written up so I’ll get it posted soon…but for now  we are headed to Yellowstone!  It’s just over an hour from us and the ice cream cones are worth the trip.  :)

Pin It!

What a pretty quilt you made so fast. I have to tell you that your patterns are awesome! I just ordered some and was blown away by the paper and color. I wish everyone would print theirs that way.

This is a stunner! Can't wait for the tut! You're an hour from Yellowstone, I'm in B.C. and we're an hour from Vancouver on the coast... I love that our continent is so diverse! Have a wonderful time!

How cute! We thought of you guys while we were fishing at the Nature Park last night (because Jay told David all about your fishing adventures!) Now I want to go eat ice cream in West Yellowstone! Have you had a huckleberry shake from Frosty's in Ashton? So. Dreamy.

Beautiful colors! Isn't it great when we can sew a top start to finish? Yes, swirls or loops will soften the lines... Enjoy your trip!

What a creative way to use up your scraps. I love it! The rainbow is really neat. Can't wait for the tutorial. Project Linus would love this. We have lots of scraps! Enjoy that beautiful park. K-

Fun quilt, and another great idea for a quick baby quilt gift!! Love the bright colors and that neat insertion of the other strips: keeps it interesting!! One hour away; I love that part of Idaho!! I miss those college days: I've always said that eastern Idaho has the most wonderful summers!! Hope you had fun at Yellowstone (tell us where you get the ice cream cones!!)

So simple and so effective - which is usually the way. I find simple and quick is the method I use for all my crafts these days. Finding I finish things and enjoy doing them more.

WOW! Wish I just lived an hour away from Yellowstone. We've visited 6 or 8 times, lost track, but we live over 1,000 miles away! One of my favorite places. Cute quilt, I might have to make one of those.

You are so lucky to be in Eastern Idaho! I grew up 1 hour from Yellowstone! Yeah! I loved it. I loved Playmill back in the day too.
