I have another finish!  Actually, the top was completed a while ago but I couldn’t decide how I wanted to quilt it.  My Pfaff on a frame doesn’t do straight lines well and I thought it too big for my domestic machine.  The quilt is called Everything’s Coming Up Rainbows by Krista Fleckenstein of Spotted Stone.     I found the pattern in the book Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe.
Using bright colors against a light gray background make these blocks pop.  It can be made into a table runner, lap quilt, wall hanging, or large bed quilt.  I made it half as large as the pattern called for.  This is a sample for the upcoming class at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The class will be Wednesday, June 19th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Call the shop to register for the class.
This is a closer look so you can see the quilting.  In the end I decided on a bunch on shorter straight lines boxed and overlapping one another.  I’m not sure how much I like the pattern, but the quilt really came out nice and flat.

ON ANOTHER NOTEModa Bake Shop has instructions for a simply Style Stacked Squares Quilt.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

Great job! I like the quilting. I've been wanting to try that quilting design. Maybe I will on one of the many tops I have waiting to be quilted.
