|New Rainbow Quilt|
The customer really wanted it to look the same but to be a little bit smaller for a new baby. I reduced it from 12 blocks to 6 blocks. With the border it will be smaller, nearly 1/3 smaller, than the original. So I've scrambled to find mostly matching fabrics with some from my scraps and some new fabrics. It's been really fun to try and recreate the same thing. I love making this quilt!
So far, I've finished the blocks and gotten the first border on. I thought I'd made enough rails to do the middle border, but I still need about half of them. My math was off when I shrank the quilt. (As Always.... Sigh) So, It won't be finished tonight. Perhaps tomorrow? I plan on buying a Noah's Ark panel to use for the backing. I think it'll be really cute as a double-sided quilt!
Besides this quilt, I've completed a custom Dinosaur quilt for a favored customer from Etsy, and I've embroidered a new Princess tote for my Etsy Shop. But, other than that, I haven't gotten much done.
