As I mentioned yesterday, I'm celebrating National Quilt Month during the rest of March & sharing all sorts of quilting projects. I thought it would be fitting to include one of my newest creations: The Rainbow Showers Quilt.
I designed this quilt for PellonProjects.com, where I'm a Featured Artist:) You can download the FREE pattern and full photo tutorial for it HERE. It's great for spring décor or brightening a child's room. With rainy spring days ahead, why not add in some sunny colors whenever possible?
The quilt has three-dimensional, satin-stitched appliques of a fluffy rain cloud, umbrella and colorful raindrops:
A coordinated rainbow-hued border block border:
Variegated rainbow thread streams from the cloud down around the rainbow raindrops:
This was the second quilt I've EVER made, so I'm by no means a quilting expert, but I was so happy with how it turned out. Proof that anyone can pick up quilting!
I used some great Pellon products to put this quilt together like Wonder-Under®, Tru-Grid™, Legacy Batting & several others. They definitely made things easier for a newbie like me:)
