I love rainbow quilts, you? I just really love COLOR. This quilt is so fabulous, I'm excited to share it with you! Kirie from Shape Moth was inspired by a graphic to make this gorgeous piece. On her blog Kirie shares her wonderful handiwork, free paper pieced patterns (see her sidebar) and even has a Tutorial Tuesday (where she teaches YOU!)...make sure to see stop by and see her after you read her feature :)
I think about 3 weeks ago I saw this graphic made by Andy Gilmore:
I was fascinated by the colour combination on this one. There is some order in this mess ;) So... I bought 4 charm packs of Kona cotton (dark, pastel, dusty and classic) to make it. After I finished what I previously planned, I thought the quilt would make a great picknick blanket.
And here it is: 'Shattered rainbow' quilt :D
I've sewn some emerald and candy green border and some more half-squares around. I used those charm squares which I had left. I really used almost all of those 4 charm packs. I'm only left with few blue ones, about 10 red and some brown squares...
I sewn the back, I quilted it (on my tiny machine) in diagonal lines, binded half by machine half by hand (on the back) and I'm proud of myself :D:D:D (although it looks crincled and wrincled...). My 'Shattered Rainbow' quilt is missing a label only.
Here it is (there's not much more to say to it ;) ):
