ZIGZAG RAINBOW

I am finally at the end of my granddaughter’s birthday quilt, a zigzag rainbow.  She will be 14 tomorrow, loves the Beatles and has painted her room in rainbow colors.  I let her choose the design from a similar one on Pinterest.  The backing is the brightest Kona yellow I could find and the binding is lime green.  
This photo of the flimsy was taken at our Monona Quilters group, who then pinned it for me.  It is the biggest one I have ever made and I am thrilled with it, and so is Sarah.

I enjoy linking up here and on RSC15 with Angela.

ALL THE BLUES

I’m making progress on my granddaughter’s zigzag rainbow quilt.  The aqua/light blue blocks were my favorite because of the many different hues to choose from without getting too dark.  So the actual blue blocks had to be the full range of light to dark for a contrast.  Now the purples are nearly done and only the pinks remain.  I don’t know where I can lay them out all at once though. 

I did order some backing fabric today from Missouri Star Quilts, Kona citrus, one of the cheeriest yellows.  I already have a lime green print Jellyroll for the binding.  But I have not made a bed size quilt for years and am not sure what to use for batting.  I do not plan on close quilting.  Any suggestions?
 
One more blue — I found this rolling stacker in our basement garbage room yesterday.  By the way, the best thing about senior apts in WI is the underground parking!  This thing was filthy with gardening dirt, but I ran each basket through the dishwasher and it cleaned up well.  Now the WIPs, overflow solids and batiks all have a new home beside the rolled up fleece blankets waiting to be Project Linus quilts.
I link up with RSC15 and Sew Cute Tuesday, hope you will check them out.
