26.2.13

Normal service resumed.

The brown cushion is finished and in 18ish days I am pretty sure I will be named best SIL in the world, but more importantly it means I can get back to obsessing over my latest rainbow quilt.  My parcel of loveliness arrived from Annie yesterday  and I managed to get the top finished.

Rainbow scraps, Kona Coal and Architextures Crosshatch in grey


I made a quick trip to Ikea this morning (sometimes living only 5 minutes away from one is a good thing) and have stocked back up on the fabulous number print to make a pieced backing.  I am going to try custom quilting this with swirls, pebbles and wavy lines.  That should take up most of my week off from work!

  1. Oooooh that sounds like a fantastic week off! We don't have an ikea on our little island at all, so I'm pretty jealous you have one so close :o)

  2. It is coming along so beautifully. Love the combination of the rainbow with the wide neutral borders.

  3. Gorgeous! The colours are perfect, I love it. And how lucky are you being only 5 minutes away from Ikea, it's at least 40 minutes each way for me, total pain! Good Luck with the quilting.

  7. What a fun quilt! That number fabric is so cool and will make such a great backing! My nearest Ikea is a few hours away but I'm tempted to drive there to find some. It sounds like you are going to have fun with the quilting!

  11. Only 5 mins from Ikea - heaven! Hazardous to your bank account maybe but heaven.
    That looks lovely, I like the neutral border. You can never have enough rainbows.
