Rainbow Boats - Finished!

Are you getting tired of finishes? Too bad, I've got a bunch more to come.


Rainbow Boats - 42x48"

A wall hanging for my mother's neighbor.

Applique is so not my forte - I definitely enjoyed piecing the boats more!

I had some fun with the quilting - added rays to the sun, and clouds in the sky.

And you can barely see it {maybe if you squint?} but I added little crystals to the rain lines to look like raindrops. It was a pain in the butt, but so, so worth it. The twinkles in the sunlight were perfect!

I don't remember any of the fabrics - the background is a sky print, the water is a waves fat quarter with no selvage, and everything came from stash/scraps.

I quilted TWO more tops this week, and I'm scheduled to quilt every Wednesday until Christmas, so get used to these finished posts. It's a little weird to be finishing quilts, not tops. I might even catch up to my UFO list someday!
