Of all of my quilts, this is one that I feel especially proud of for a few different reasons. This was my first rainbow quilt, and the first time I attempted to blend colors gradually around a quilt.
Another little victory with this quilt is that I planned my binding. Each section of the quilt is bound in the corresponding color. I love that the binding doesn't detract from the color layout of the quilt.
Most of all, it always feels wonderful to use up all of the scraps in my scrap jars, and with this quilt, I accomplished that! The quilt measures 88" x 96," so that's a LOT of scraps!
I pieced the backing with wide rainbow stripes, bordered by a dreamy gray polkadot. I thought it looked soft like a cloud! All in all, this quilt is one of the finishes I have been most proud of!
Name- Shattered Rainbow
Size- 88" x 96 in.
Quilting- Free motion meandering by me
Entry Category- ROYGBIV Quilts
*Edited 10/25- Since I've had a few people ask me, I used THIS method for my improv piecing. The only difference is that I made 8 inch blocks instead of 12 inch, and of course I sewed one color at a time.
