If you're a regular reader of my blog, you would have seen the blocks as I pieced them. I joined a block of the month at Along Came Quilting and they sent me the fabric for 10 blocks each month. It was a great way to do this quilt, as I don't have a large stash, and wouldn't have had any sort of fabric variety on my own.
I used the layout on the cover of the book. Youngest likes rainbows, and I wanted to use all of the blocks. We chose a pale teal shot cotton for the sashing and border fabrics.
Prepare for a lot of photos :)
I had the book, with closeups of Angela Walters amazing quilting, however, once I started quilting, I tried really hard not to refer to the book unless I was completely stumped, because I didn't want my quilting to be a copy of Angela Walters. It is definitely inspired by her, I've taken a lot of classes, both in person and on Craftsy, taugtht by Angela, and if any block is identical to her quilting, it is happy coincidence.
I used a wide variety of threads
I've photographed the blocks 4 at a time, but it's still a lot of photos.
Batting is QD wool. Backing is a wide-flannel. Quilt is 90x90.
