After finishing some UFO's from my sister-in-law's box, I was finally able to get my scrappy rainbow four-patch loaded on my longarm.
The delay was caused by a need for white batting. JoAnns was out of Warm and White. I ordered two different rolls from Amazon and they both came in extremely poor quality. It was like the cotton seeds had been left in the batting making it rough and no good at all. They both had to be sent back. Then I ordered a roll of Winline 100% cotton white batting from my local quilt shop. I had never used it before, but I have to say that I love it. This quilt turned out so cuddly and the white batting made the Kona White look even more brilliant.
It always feels so good to unroll a quilt off the long arm.
The minky backing was one that I had bought on clearance awhile ago.
I decided to bind the quilt in a fabric which matched the backing. It ended up that the only fabric I had that worked was in two corners of the quilt. It was almost like I had planned it.
This is another new favorite quilt!
I love how the quilting turned out.
Bunny Loves the cuddle factor.
This quilt has been used a lot lately. It is great for making quilt forts. We like them made with a card table for support.
I was going to call this quilt Four-Patch Match because I liked the rhyme. However, I decided to continue my candy names for scrap quilts. I already have Starburst, Jolly Rancher, Skittles, and so this one is Chiclets like the candy gum.
What a yummy swirl!
