I'm on a Roll Here
Back again with another finish to show you. I finished this quilt top and showed it off here awhile ago, but now, here it is in all it's crinkly goodness.
I. LOVE. THIS. QUILT. I cannot get over how much I love the colors and the quilting and the crinkles since I washed it. The colors are so vibrant.
I started this quilt back in February and was just going to make it like all the others I saw on line, with 16 different color flowers. Then, I changed direction. To a rainbow quilt. I am so glad I did.
I had trouble deciding on the binding. I could have used almost any color. I went with an orange print from V and Co. Simply Color for the two sides of cool colors and the green raindrops from Laurie Wisbrun's Jack and Jenny line for the warm color sides. I am pleased with this as well.
For the back, I use a large chunk of this wonderful flower print. I bought a couple of yards of this several years ago and was debating on how to best use it. It is Honey Meadow by Michael Miller. I was just a little short, so hence, the yellow corner.
Isn't it pretty?
One more look.
And the pretty binding. I think this is getting a hanging sleeve and going up on a wall in the living room. That's Mr. GQ's idea. Then I can look at it all day long!
Talk to you soon.
Linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts finish it Friday.
