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!
