Blogger's Quilt Festival: ROY G BIV

This past winter I started a quilt.  A rainbow quilt.  I've always loved rainbow quilts, but hadn't really ever done one.  (I did two more quickly after this one!)

The pattern is Metro Rings.  I had been planning to slowly work on it in between other projects, but it was just way too much fun!


It's one of my favorites.  And I love how the pictures came out: white rings and white snow separated by a rainbow border.


For quilting, I echoed the white arcs.  The "squares" have some orange peels along the diagonals and the rest is filled with pebbles.  The leaf shapes (or "rectangles") have a back and forth.

I made a pillow to go with it too, another first.  I hadn't read the instructions quite right and had a few left over pieces.

I'm adding this to the Bloggers' Quilt Festival!

  1. Amanda,

    This is beautiful! Your color placement is outstanding and the snowy background against the bright rainbow colors makes your quilt 'pop'. Lovely!

  3. What a wonderful quilt! I love the placement of the colours, and the way the binding echoes the colours in the quilt!
