I finished this one just in time to make my One Monthly Goal with Elm Street Quilts.  I didn't get a chance to photograph during daylight, so these pictures on the spare bed will have to do for now.

A couple of years ago, I bought a Kona New Bright Palette Jelly Roll when it was the daily deal at Missouri Star Quilt Company.  They showed a picture of a rainbow quilt that was a class/project on Creative Bug.  I LOVED it and bought the jelly roll.

I finally pieced the top over my winter break.  I did go to Creative Bug and subscribe so I could take the class, but it is not at all needed.  I was hoping for advice on paring down the jelly roll (promised in the course description) but she just kinda did it and didn't explain.  There are 30 strips in this.  I added two of my own because the roll had shockingly little purple in it.

The colors are: KONA Primrose, Salmon, Melon, Candy Pink, Azalea, Pomegranate, Poppy, Coral, Kumquat, School Bus, Sunny, Corn Yellow, Buttercup, Cactus, Chartreuse, Pear, Fern, Pistachio, Aloe, Candy Green, Bahama Blue, Peacock, Water, Blue Jay, Regatta, Lapis, Bright Periwinkle, Crocus, Violet, & Lupine.  The binding is Kona Titanium.

For the back, I used leftovers of some of my favorite fabrics. All could be considered novelty. The prints are from Wee Wonder by Sarah Jane (kids in trees), Critter Patch by Penguin & Fish (bunny rabbits), Jolly Tree Farm by The Henley Studio (trees on blue background), Make a Wish by Lewis & Irene (fairies & dandelions), and Far Far Away by Heather Ross (2 prints: unicorns and Princess & the Pea).  There is also another tree print that I don't know what it is.

This one is for me!  I frequently like an extra quilt on my at night, and I can't wait to see that rainbow goodness on my bed!

 Rainbow was my February One Monthly Goal (goal setter # 84).  It was also #3 on my list of Q1 goals for the globally hosted Finish Along.

  1. Congrats on meeting your goal with such a fun bright quilt!

  2. Lovely quilt. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

  3. Congratulations on your quilt finish! I love both sides of the quilt. I keep thinking I need to start using some of my scraps to create a nice finish for the quilt backings. You've inspired me to give it a try one of these times.

  4. What a fun rainbow finish and a great way to se up the jelly roll! On behalf of the 2017 global FAL hosts, thank you for participating in this quarter's FAL.
