This one's just for Jayne @ Twiggy & Opal. A little rainbow thread money shot...
Maritime Modern Quilt Guild has partnered up with the illustrious Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild. Because we were a little low on participants on our end, I offered to make two.
Did you notice that matched binding? Sometimes I just don't know when to stop!
These wee girlies with umbrellas just seemed right for the back of a rainbow quilt.
And, given that this quilt is going to another modern quilter, some vintage-y sewing notions seemed apt.
And then there's the mini mini. I knew I wanted to make a little something to send to my quilty kindred spirit, Lynn @ Buttons Quilts. She sent me such a wonderful birthday present/scrap swap bundle (more on that this Sunday). And there was still some rainbow left from my pieced strip...
this lovely from way back in 2013. And no, I didn't make a mistake. I always put four hanging triangles on my quilts. That way, the recipient can decide how they want to hang it!
