Bloggers Quilt Festival - Rainbow Tilt-a-Whirl

My second entry to Blogger's Quilt Festival is a favorite scrappy work, my Rainbow Tilt-a-Whirl.

Rainbow Tilt-a-whirl baby quilt

This one was made entirely on a whim, the design inspired by my NEED to use up some triangle scraps.  I enjoyed making the rainbow flow diagonally through this quilt.

It's baby-sized with black/white stripey binding.  A few of the blocks have a bit of extra piecing that, I think, creates some fun character.  



Finished Size:  36" square
Pattern:  my original design, details here and here
Machine Pieced and Machine quilted by me

  11. I kinda think that with a rainbow, diagonal is almost always the way to go. ;-)

    It's a really interesting looking block but it appears to break down simple enough. Very cool!
