One day a few weeks ago, I was out shopping and making the rounds of our local quilt shops. One of my stops was Keep Me In Stitches quilt shop in Appleton. KMIS is a smaller size shop, but it is packed to the rafters in quilt ideas and fun fabrics. You can find them on Facebook.
The owner, Jacqui, has been running a Stash Busting Club since the beginning of the year. Remember Seeing Red? That pattern was the January installment. I missed the next two projects, as I was tied up with other things. The latest club project covers June and July and is based on this pattern:
Switchback by Jacqui's daughter, Amy.
I came home with the pattern and dug through my fat quarter stash, and found 12 fabrics suitable for a rainbow quilt. I chose small, mostly tone-on-tone prints in various colors of the rainbow. I wanted a slightly larger quilt, so I added the border and chose black, which makes the rainbow really pop! The center rainbow section is heavily quilted in rows and rows echoing the zig-zag of the pattern. Here is my rendition of this pattern:
I call it Prismatic Rainbow, and it is a done deal (finished with binding!). This quilt will stay in my own collection.
A riddle for you: What is Red and White and Black Allover? My next project, of course. Tune in next time for details.
