Baby Rainbow Mile a Minute

Quilting and binding this baby rainbow mile a minute quilt was my goal for May and Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal, and thankfully I was able to get it done.  I started playing with multi-coloured scraps in November 2020 and then completed the top in November as well.

I was able to sew the binding on and get some nice photos while on a little get-away to Overlander Lodge in Jasper, where my husband and I celebrated our 34th anniversary.  A little sewing, a little knitting, lots of reading and some great food, a very relaxing retreat. 


Quilted with a rainbow variegated thread and the Blowin’ Wind pantograph by Jodi Beamish. 


Baby Rainbow Mile a Minute 2021

The finished quilt measures 40 inches by 47 inches.

Started: November 2020.

Finished: May 2021


My bonus goal was to piece the top of a rainbow quarter log cabin quilt, and here it is. 

Don’t miss all the beautiful colors of the rainbow looking for that pot of gold.

Finishing goals for May

To participate in Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal (OMG) linkup, I would like to quilt and bind this Baby Rainbow Mile a Minute quilt. 

Alison Glass' Spectrum Feathers fabric is a perfect compliment for the back of this rainbow quilt.

As a bonus I would like to piece the top of another rainbow project that I have on the go - these quarter log cabins.  

Let’s see if I can do it!

There are two fatal errors that keep great projects from coming to life:
1) Not finishing
2) Not starting
