Bloggers' Quilt Festival - Rainbow Mini - Autumn 2016


And for my second entry into the Bloggers' Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy Amy's Creative Side, I am entering a Rainbow Mini into the Mini Quilts category.  I have just realised that I never named this mini ..... it was made for the Rainbow Mini Swap Round 2 on IG back in February this year.



This was an original design that started with some scrappy stars and developed from there.  The full story of this quilt can be found here if you want to know more!


This was the first quilt that I had made with so much negative space and I had great fun filling it all in with my longarm quilting.


It grew organically and encompassed both ruler work and freehand guided feathers.  I learnt a lot on this quilt and was really sad to see it posted off.

My other entry, Should I Stay or Should I Go, can be found here.

Entries are open until 24 September so you still have a few days to think which quilt of yours you may like to enter.  If you do please let me know and I will head on over and have a look!
