Liz's Rainbow Quilt

What quilter can resist colorful fabric squares? Not me, that's for sure! A few years ago, I participated in quite a few fabric square swaps through flickr and various blogs that I follow. I ended up with quite a large selection of 4-inch squares of top quality quilting cotton in every color of the rainbow. I wanted to highlight the variety of prints and colors in a baby quilt, so I designed my Rainbow Quilt and wrote a free tutorial for it which you can find HERE. One of my readers, Liz, used my tutorial to make a quilt of her own and recently she sent me some pictures of it. I asked if I could share them here at Hooked On Needles and she said yes! So here is Liz's rainbow quilt...

I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves...

I think Liz did an awesome job piecing and quilting this quilt. You can see some little feet peeking out the side of that last picture. They belong to her little girl who, I've been told, loves this quilt too! Thanks for letting me share your beautiful quilt with my readers, Liz!

Another reader also made use of my tutorial and posted a picture of her own version of this rainbow quilt HERE. She used 6-inch squares and 3-inch sashing so that her finished quilt would be larger. This one turned out just fantastic too!

I have just recently gotten some dates with the long arm machine, so I will hopefully have some quilting pictures to show off again soon. Seems like forever since I've actually sewn something! It's good to be back! Do you have any colorful quilting projects going on right now?

Happy Stitching!
