My first official finish of 2013, I was about half way through quilting it before we moved, so it was a quick finish and a quick finish=FUN!
this is my last quilting bee quilt in my queue (phew!--so nice to have them put together instead of just a pile of blocks) and it is one of my favorites! I loved each and every block, and all together, it's WOW! You can see my inspiration pic in this post.
I was way into rainbows at the time this quilt was started, and I still love them, but I am so in love with the two tone greys in this quilt. I think they make the colors pop.
I'm still not sure if this rainbow stripe is right for this quilt, I really wanted a grey on grey stripe for the binding, but grey is a tricky color and nothing really matched. I even considered making my own striped fabric, but knew it would be too bulky. In the end I went with rainbow, but I wish I could've made the grey work.
backing, colorful zigzags and leftover grey.
Thanks to all my friends who made a block. It's perfect.
