Rainbow Rows quilt

I have finished my Rainbow Rows quilt.  This pattern is by Lissa Alexander, found in the April 2015 edition of American Patchwork & Quilting.  I pieced many of the little blocks over the past year (or more) while sewing my way through the rainbow with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

I absolutely loved the process of this quilt, the little scraps that I got to use, the scrappy background and the colours.

Quilted with the Double Plume pantograph by Keryn Emmerson.

I decided to piece the back, buying a couple of bigger pieces and using some of my stash as well.

And I added a label, I’m trying to remember to do this for every quilt.

My husband and I are now enjoying it on our bed.
