I made this one for my daughter sometime around 1990. Her room at the time had curtains with hand-drawn fabric crayon rainbows on them. Those curtains set the color theme for the quilt. The tropical fabric for the back had similar colors and was a fun complement to the front of the quilt. The name of the block escapes me, and I can't remember if I used someone else's pattern or my own idea. It was definitely made when my eyesight was much better. I can't believe I hand quilted on black fabric.
I forgot to measure the quilt. I think the blocks are about 6 inches with 1-inch sashes and maybe 4 to 5 inch borders. It's probably a little over 40 by 48 inches overall. I pieced it on my Singer Featherweight and hand quilted it with black cotton thread, except for the black border. I used various colored threads on that. The batting is polyester. The quilt was a topper on a bedspread for several years and then was put away when we moved to a new house. Because it's had little use, it has held up well over the years. I'm not even sure we ever washed it.
I'm linking up today with My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday.
Next week baby cuddling and games of Candyland will sadly be over, but I'll be back to work on quilting, so I'll try to be back with some initial planning for a new quilt.
