Rainbow Sewing

August has been busy... in a good kind of "sewing" way!
I have been having sew much fun helping test some patterns from some of favorite designers!   If you follow me on my Instgram, you have seen  photos already.

*  Sew The Rainbow Quilt   -a paper pieced dream quilt!
  -   by Kristy at  Quiet Play   { here}

Kristy has designed a quilt... that features her  popular Geometric Sewing Machine block, and is surround by these sewing goodies... spools, scissors and flying geese!!

This is Kristy's quilt...

    Want to see my version?

I had a  plump , unused,  fat quarter bundle of Mimosa fabric, by Another Point of View   Windham Fabrics, and some pretty blenders ... Basics from Connecting Threads, just waiting to be used!    I even had the low volume  Line Dried fabric, which would  prove to be perfect for the background fabric!

I started  getting excited here...  (I made the scissors first.  The sewing machine was my reward!!)

The geometric sewing machine and four pairs of scissors! 

And then Whiskers began to get excited!!

Be still my heart.... there are Spools and  Flying Geese !

The spools are big enough to let you feature a fabric.  Mimosa is a beautiful line!!

And here is my finished flimsy top!

available soon! ( early September)


I had to put the backing construction for this quilt on "pause" for a bit... while working on some other test patterns. 

But I have a great idea brewing.....
Come back soon to see progress on my Sew The Rainbow Quilt,  and see the other  cute projects I have been working on !!

I'm off to my sewing room!
