TGIFF! - Rainbow Bright

Happy Friday!

I finally finished my Rainbow Bright quilt, which was started for the Something New Sampler with Amy @ 13 Spools back in, um, January. Yay! Those who have been following for a while may remember that my trapunto tutorial was done for this sampler.

Although I finished all the blocks and even quilted them back in March with my favourite Aurifil, I got stuck on the layout. I found a solution that I'm happy with a couple of weeks ago and have been assembling it quilt-as-you-go since.

Close-ups of each block can be found hereherehere, and here. I think my favourite block in this one is the Cathedral Windows one. Love!

I have to say that I learned a lot about rainbows in doing this quilt, especially in doing that block on the lower left.


I free motion quilted pebbles over the quilt-as-you-go sashing because I found it looked too puffy against the quilting of the blocks without it.


I'm not sure why, but this section of the quilting is my favourite! Maybe it's the art deco feel?


And the back -- nothing special because I knew it was going to be a wallhanging, but you can really see the quilting!


Hmm, I think this is my first ever completed sampler! Yay!
