Rainbow magic finish....

Quite possibly the only chance to see a rainbow in today's dreary sky as I managed to dodge the rain and sneak some shots in of the now completed Rainbow Magic baby quilt.
I'm very pleased with the finished result and am sure that the soon-to-be parents will be as well. Mind you, they're still getting over the 'magic' of having a baby....but that's another story for another time!
The back features a stripey fabric from Ikea which apart from the co-ordinating splashes of colour it provides it's also very wide and meant that there are no joins in the back....kind of a blessing with all the other joins of the 1/2 square triangles! Just a bit of a challenge to make sure that the backing fabric was straight. Mine is slightly skewed!
The binding is tiny white polka dot on orange. Lovely!
Now to package it up and send it off to Surrey in the UK.


  1. It looks gorgeous - you are vey clever to get the photo of the flimy before the sun left us -no more photos for a week!!

  2. Theresa, I love this quilt! Thanks for the lovely comment on my a-ha moment post. You are a "no-reply" commenter, so I came her to reply to you! Have your fabrics arrived?
