Bloggers’ Quilt Festival


This is my most recent finish and I really love it.  I'd joined A Zig and A Zag Quilt Along, hosted by Angela in June; it was pretty slow going, so I decided to do one more zig zag quilt, at the same time, using HSTs.  I just added more fabric choices to my rainbow and this is the result.  I was hesitant about the diagonal rainbow stripe binding, but Bob assures me it's terrific.

Here's the back:


I've been quilting just over 2 years, and this is my 3rd Bloggers’ Quilt Festival!  My first year I jumped right in, and I've been joining in ever since.  Thanks to Amy for hosting.



May your bobbins always be full,
