Rainbow Quilt II

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Mind the Gap by Moda Link to website or photo!OpenPage What are you most proud of? The big pops of color are cool, and I am really getting the hang of this Free Motion Quilting business. That is a lot coming from me, because I was terrified of FMQ, yet I find I like it more and more the more I use it to finish off my projects. Not yet perfect in any way, but sooo much better than when I first tried to FMQ What advice would you give someone starting this project? My blocks are big, so bright colors against a solid background are going to work best, I think. Only other advice, as always and always, is just have fun and enjoy what you do. This actually came together fairly quickly for me since I managed to cut bigger pieces of fabric, so I used less blocks.

What you will need

  • Cotton Fabric
  • Poly batting

Q&A with QuiltDude

DKelley asked:
Hey Dude (I couldn't resist). This is a great rendition of The Flag. Excellent color selections. Are these pieced or appliqued? The photo doesn't provide a very good image of the FMQ. I am like you - I have found that FMQ grows on you the more projects you do. This is my second best liked of the projects that you have uploaded. Great Work!
QuiltDude answered:
Hello DKelley! Not sure why I didn't see this post earlier, it says you wrote it in May? Sorry about the delayed reply. Thanks for the kind words. This quilt is pieced - I'm not a big fan of applique', I just can't get into it. You're right, these pics are not the best because I have a crappy camera, so again, sorry for the poor photo quality. Anywho, thanks for checking out my stuff, and I'm glad you like it! - Jose
