Rainbow Rose Mini – A Finish!




I missed the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along held by the Irish Modern Quilt Guild in the middle of last year but I loved all the versions that I saw. When I had to make gifts as part of Pay It Forward Craft I decided to put a mini version together for my off-line local recipient, Michelle.


This quilt measures 25 inches square and is quilted using a straight stitch. I really like the way it turned out. It was a hard one to give away, but aren’t they all!



I took it out for a lunch time photo shoot in a spot with dappled shade.


The wind blew, the shade shifted


So I took it home for another go. This time it was late afternoon and the colours seem a lot duller.



In the end I stood behind a bush, took a styled shot and gave it up.

  4. Such a cute small version of the Rainbow Rose! I'm sure it will be loved by Michelle. Don't you hate when the elements will not cooperate on a photo shoot. I swear, a breeze is no where to be found until I head outside with a camera and quilt.

  5. I would have found this quilt very hard to give away too ... but the fact that you were Paying It Forward makes it a bit easier :)

  6. I can see why that quilt was so hard to give away. It's beautiful! Love the colors and the clarity against the white. Your pictures show it off beautifully despite the uncooperative breeze!

  18. Oh my word, what a beautiful mini!!!! How did you get it to stick to the brick wall? And yes, they're hard to give away. But there's always the next one we want to make!
