I am happy to share with you “Color Me Rainbow” – my newest quilt and pattern.
Quilt size: 25” x 25”
Center design: 20” diameter
Isn’t fun that a fabric rosette inspired this pattern?
I love making small quilts- not too much fabric needed, only a few hours to put the top together and best of all, so easy to quilt! And did I mentioned the wonderful technique that is fusible raw edge applique?
I think this is one of my favorite quilt.
It’s not only the beautiful fabric – Fossil Fern by Benartex.
I love the quilting on the rainbow design…
But I love even more the quilting on the background.
It was a last minute idea!
There is a very narrow space between the colored pieces- less than 1/4”.
It’s very easy to quilt feathers on these narrow pieces. I tried to quilt as close to the edges as possible, as the edges were not stitched down during the applique stage. It’s only quilting, no zig zag stitches on the edges. And these pictures were taken after washing.
I paired the Aurifil 50wt thread with a Jeans Needle and quilting over fusible web appliques was an enjoyable experience and the quilting looks so beautiful.
I love, love this little quilt, and the other one in the series- Color Me Hexy!
