Pocket Full Of Rainbow

There is literally nothing more satisfying than a quilt that comes together super quick!  For this beauty, I dug out two gorgeous charm packs from V and Co – Simply Style and Simply Color.  Once I had a rough idea of my rainbow, I added about a dozen of my own fabrics from my stash, surrounded it in a sea of white, and DONE!

I’m a tad obsessed by rainbows at present, and think they are the perfect colour combination to brighten anyone’s day.

I mean, how can you NOT smile looking at a rainbow of colour?

I kept the quilting simple, to go with the layout.  Meandering trails through the coloured block, and straight line quilting to finish out the white frame.  I used the most gorgeous 28 weight variegated Aurifil thread – #4651.  It’s a delicious  mix of cream, white and lavender, and blends beautifully.  I wish I could photograph it better!

This pocket full of rainbow will be gifted to a very lovely lady very soon.

If you’re looking for a quick fix of quilting, get out those charm squares again!

*** Just as a side note – I have had people on Instagram ask me how I get my seams to match so well on my quilts? (They’re not all perfect – promise!).  I don’t have time to do my own tutorial, but the one HERE from Sew Mama Sew is great, and explains how to “nest” your seams.  I hope that’s helpful!
