As I told you the other day, I made my eldest daughter a quilt for Christmas.
I’m nothing if not fair and even with the children (I hope) so obviously I needed to make the smaller child a quilt also.
She’s always been into rainbows, bright cheery colour explosions. Her dress sense is – well – unique – to put it the best way and she doesn’t give a you know what how other people see her.
So when I saw this tutorial online I thought it was the perfect quilt for a rainbow child.
I had to order the jelly rolls in (nowhere sells Rainbow jell rolls anywhere!) but even with that cost it still worked out a pretty cheap quilt.
So what do you think?
Mother quilted it in a swirly design which I think worked really well on such a straight quilt. Kinda cuts through the straightness of it.
I’m very pleased with it. It is a really quick, (if a little cumbersome) quilt to make and apart from keeping your wits about you in terms of colour placement (it’s very easy to stitch the wrong row on) I found it really easy.
So if you’re in possession of two jelly rolls you can’t decide what to do with, this is a great idea.
Hope you like it. She loved it. She loves anything rainbows. And being eight – well, she’s not twelve, if that makes sense! I have a couple more years of exuberance to go yet!
