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!
