Zig Zag Rainbow
or Chevron Rainbow if you prefer.
64 x 80
I've been making these blocks from scraps since, according to my blog, August 2014 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project. I guess it took me that long to come up with 4.5 inch scraps to use but now I have a whole box of scraps that size.
This quilt is an eclectic mix of fabrics. I like that art deco lady with the poppy hat smoking a cigarette in a cigarette holder. How often do you see someone smoking these days let alone a smoker depicted in fabric?
In Zig Zag Rainbow Land Mickey Mouse and Santa mix with spiders and fruits and veggies...
...and cats with hats, owls and rabbits. The fun part is that you can't tell what all is in the quilt from afar but up close you can find lots of treasures to smile about.
I quilted it on my DSM (yes, lots of starts and stops to do pivoting and to force the darned quilt through the small harp on my machine) following the zig zags. I used white thread in the neutral areas and used up old bobbins of thread in all the colors of the rainbow in the colored sections.
Don't look at the back for too long...you may get dizzy.
Don't know what I'm going to do with this quilt. For now it will sit on a shelf.
