A great week for rainbows!!

Who would ever have guessed that in the same week I would make a rainbow quilt (see the post previous to this one) and then receive one in a swap?

Participating for the second time in Kate North's Another Little Quilt Swap (this is her 6th as hostess...) I received this absolutely gorgeous quilt from Marie Joerger.

Introducing "Baby Rainbow Bright"

Please click on image for a closer look!

A larger version (the "Mama??) of this quilt hangs in Marie's home and she made this one especially for the swap.

This is the most informative label I've ever seen, and how kind of Marie to include my name ;-0

The quilting is a perfect all -over meander done in a very subtle shaded rainbow rayon thread so the whole quilt has a magical sparkle.

The nine batiks used in the color blocks are the perfect complement to the bright and bubbly border fabric and even the backing is true to the rainbow theme.

If you haven't visited the ALQS blog please do.  Kate does such a great job of organizing and encouraging her swap participants that maybe you'll find yourself wanting to do a swap the next time she announces one - it's great fun!!  And do visit Marie's blog and Etsy shop - she's a talented gal.......


  1. Susan, I'm thrilled that my quilt has found such a wonderful home! Thank you so much for the compliments and the wonderful showing of 'baby rainbow bright' - it is an honor to be featured on your blog. After reading this I had to check out your 'rainbow' quilt and love what you have done as well. I, too, look forward to ALQS with Kate soon! :) Marie

  2. Lucky Ducky! Glad you got this beautiful rainbow quilt! :)
