Bottled Rainbow - Complete!

I am SO thrilled with how my Bottled Rainbow turned out!! Yay!! This has been a wonderful project - one of my favorites!! I would like to thank Rachel at Stitched in Color for hosting this wonderful quilt-a-long!!

So, with no further adu - my Bottled Rainbow Quilt - all done!!


Finished size: 68 x 84


I don't use it often, but I did back this one with minky. The last quilt I used minky on was the Supernova, that I gave to my hubby. Well... I kept stealing it from him (it's so snuggly!!), so I decided to splurge and back this one with minky for ME. So he could keep his... You know - keeping the peace! lol!


The binding was from Riley Blake's "Feeling Groovy" line. It's flannel. The only reason I decided this was okay was because I was using minky on the back, so a flannel binding would be okay. Well, that's just how I justified it. Truth be told, I just loved it so much, and it was SO perfect, I just HAD to use it!!! :)

This has been so fun! I am kind of thinking that a weekly ticker tape block may still be in order, because they are SO fun! This is now my very own snuggle-on-the-couch quilt! Yay!!

Oh my gosh friend! This is so cute it looks so time consuming! I don't know how you do it all.

Looks great.

Melinda said...

As usual...Gorgeous! I love it. The polka dots on the back are so cute. And I love hour binding stripes flow into the quilt instead of alongside it. Very pretty!

Wow!! I love the addition of the white sashing, it really makes your blocks pop :) Great finish!!!

I love the minky on the back! What an awesome idea. I'm a little afraid of working with the minky, but it would be great in a QAYG type project.

And I agree with Elizabeth--the white sashing looks great!

Seriously so awesome, Even Brandon saw it on face book and said, "Wow, Val did you see this quilt" ha ha ha. Pretty impressive :)

It turned out amazing! I can imagine that minky must be so incredibly soft -- what a great idea!

Jen said...

It is absolutely fabulous. I love the diagonal color scheme. Jealous of the minky, too.

Leanne said...

This turned out so great! And good for you to make it so snuggly.

Jenny said...

Ah! It looks fantastic! I absolutely love the binding fabric. I have been toying with the idea of backing mine in flannel, and that might have to be the one I use!

Love it! I've wanted to make a rainbow quilt. I'm a novice, so I thought I would just do square of each color. BORING! I just never got excited about it. You're quilt is fabulous and fun, such a great use of scraps! The white borders makes the colors pop. Looks super cozy too!

I just joined your blog! such a beautiful quilt. Can you tell me how you quilted it? Is it hard to quilt regular cotton and minke together? I love the idea but I'm a beginner and worry about that kind of thing. Thanks!!
