Stitching Rainbows

I had the pleasure of taking a workshop with Jo Avery at QuiltCon. I love her work - so whimsical - and really enjoyed the opportunity to sit and learn about her rainbows and needle-turned applique.

I went with low volume backgrounds for my 9 rainbows and had fun mixing and matching solid scraps for the rainbows. Now the real fun has begun - adding the hand quilting! This project is about 18" square which makes it quite portable. I brought it to my last guild meeting and enjoyed stitching away!

I am undecided if I'll add additional quilting into the background - maybe just an X at the intersection of the blocks. 

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  1. I especially love the low volume background with the vertical dashes on the left - it looks like falling rain to me (which is needed for rainbows)!


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
