My apologies to those of you who are tired of this quilt..... When Jess and I finished it, I had no idea that the Blogger's Quilt Festival by Amy's Creative Side was just around the corner. It is so fun to see all of the amazing quilts people make! I've always wanted to participate, yet always manage to forget. This quilt is the one that made me go ahead and jump in.
For the long version, you can read more here. The short version is, this was made in four very long days of sewing, for a special couple who are going through a tough time. We needed to send them a hug.
My daughter and I started piecing with no set plan other than ROYGBIV and the lyrics we would applique.
It measures 60 x 60 and is perfect for two to snuggle in. We backed it in a lovely herringbone flannel from Joann, binding and applique are black Kona cotton, pieced and quilted with Aurifil thread, and we used Nature's Touch by Pellon for the batting.
We love this quilt so much and are so glad to have been able to make it and send it to such a sweet couple.
I have entered this into the ROYGBIV category. If you haven't already, go look, there are some amazing quilts there.
Thank you for stopping by!
