Rainbow Sherbet Summer

You might remember this quilt from way back when it was just a pile of inexpensive fabric purchased on the cheap from my favorite store. I was inspired from the moment I saw the fabric to assemble the top (it only took a couple of days from the time of purchase to completed top!) Quilting it up was fun and easy. I used a different simple motif in each diagonal line of color. Swirls, lady bugs, flowers, and Thorin's Leaves all went into this one.

Unlike most of the bed quilts I make, this one wasn't made for anyone in particular. Quilts have a way of finding their way home though, so I won't worry too much about it.


  1. Very nice! I would love to see that one close up.

  2. Looks Great! I still have my huge pile of those fabrics to do something with.

  3. What a happy fun quilt. You did a great job and I would never have thought of using the different quilting pattern in the stripes. I enlarged the picture so I could see them and it is just so fun.

  4. What a fun quilt - the quilting looks great!
