    Very Bright rainbow Quilt

    Another DGD wanted a rainbow quilt. I was planning on making a very complicated pattern with 15 degree wedges and swirling one way and then another. Christmas Eve my DGD said, "Can't it just be straight?" Well, sure, why not? Afterall, it's her quilt, and a straight rainbow would be a lot easier to make!
    This is my own pattern. It's just 6" HSTs with a 4" border. The flying geese in the 2 corners are 2" X 4". The quilt is about 54" sq. Hope you like it.Name:  100_1500.jpg

    The best part is she gets the quilt you made for her. Isn't it amazing how we want things perfect in our eyes, yet the person receiving it will adore it even if it is Straight(which is perfect in HER eyes). It's pretty and she will love it!!!!

    It looks great! Isn't it funny how you can see their personalities developing as they grow older.

    How clever - and beautiful. My granddaughter would love it. She is forever drawing rainbows. I may have to steal your pattern.
