Rainbow Log Cabin Quilt

This beauty was made by a first time quilter!
totally honoured to quilt this one.... It is just full of happy and cheer!
 I called it the beast as I was quilting it.   It is approximately queen sized, and because the colours were on the diagonal,  the quilting was requested to be on the diagonal too.   That means, that I had to do a lot of rolling up and down the quilt, back and forth to quilt in those diagonal spaces. Hence,  it was a beast to quilt.  But it sure turned out beautiful!

 I quilted spiral swirls and plumes up each colour way.

The piano key borders were done in a whimsical feather shape.   The small dark border was a simple loop de loop. 

Thread:   Superior Magnifico in Yolk
Batting:  Warm and Natural


  1. I like your elongated loops.

    I quilted one of these...on my DSM, which made the diagonals easier :)

  2. wow what an amazing quilt for a first timer. Luckily for the quilter you have lots of experience and made it more amazing. Great job

  3. Such a beautiful quilt for a first time quilter, and Andrea your magic touch, made the quilt more beautiful than ever. I can see why you called it the beast, but such a pretty beast. LOL
