Rainbow Bears' Square Dance - is finished!

 2018 FAL:

Here it is then: quilted and bound.

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt from 2016. The top has been finished for about a year, but now it's finally finished.

The quilting is quite simple: FMQ motif echoing within the "paws" and zig-zags in the block sashing, with gentle curves with the walking foot in the background space. I don't know why it took me so long to decide on that!

I like the whole top, but I think the back is the tops:

I just love the back! It makes me feel so happy!

Now just one more photo, over the railing:

Quilt statistics:
Size: 58" square
Fabric top: assorted scraps from stash
Backing: assorted solids, but mainly Bella
Pieced and quilted with Aurifil 40wt.: background with dark grey (2630), front with assorted colours to match the fabric, more or less.

2018 FAL:
This is my second finish for
the 2018 finish along Q1 which I posted about here.
this is my first finish for April's One Monthly goal, which I posted about here

It's really two quilts in one if you ask me as I agree, BOTH sides are amazing!

WooHoo!! Congratulations.

Brilliant finish. The back is wonderful too!

Danice G said...

Beautiful quilt. I love it. Those colors are gorgeous.

Kaja said...

Congratulations on the finish! I think this counts as a double-sided quilt, since both sides are equally striking.

Kate said...

Oh so very pretty! Love how black just makes those colors shine. Congrats on the finish!

Carol said...

What a great scrap quilt! I can't decide which I like more -- the back or the front. They're both great!

Izzy said...
