Rainbows

There is nothing like a rainbow on a dark & dreary day...

This lovely quilt is a collaborative effort to which I added some different prairie points and pieced rainbow binding. I wanted the points to echo the points on the wonky stars and I think it turned out nicely! The fabulous quilting was done by Janet!



Here is the full front and back of the Rainbow Wonky Stars quilt. I also pieced the aqua block on the front :o)


And here it is all washed and folded... super yummy!

Some more rainbow wonky stars appeared in my craftroom. The pieced rainbow stripes were the backing for my wonky star quilt but looked amazing as borders along the top & bottom of the quilt. A herd of cranes were slowly spreading across the floor...

And now for some random cute fluffy Percy cat-ness...



And some more rainbows in Claire's hand! I hope you see rainbows today too!

Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

I LOVE your rainbows!The wonky star quilt is beautiful! Those cranes--AMAZING!!!

Kitty---precious! We have four--but one that wishes she had thumbs so she could quilt and scrapbook with me! LOL

Now I see how people sort their stuff. I always feel like I don't have enough counter/table space--but I use the guest bed. I would love to have it closer, like the floor--but the craft room is grand central station for the kitties when I am in there! LOL
