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.


  1. It looks amazing! And that is some fab crinkly goodness :)

  2. I love color. This is a wonderful quilt. Great job with the color and I do love the binding.

  3. Your quilt is stunning with the rainbow setting of colors. A quilt that put a smile on my face and others too, I believe.

  4. Fab! I love when colors are in the right order. Your is perfect :-)

  5. Wow, I love the rainbow of colors!!

  6. That is a heck of a beautiful quilt. I love a rainbow quilt, and the backing is so obscenely beautiful! I'm so glad you changed your mind and decided to grade the colors into a rainbow, too. It gives this pattern such a different look!
