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!



  1. The fabric you used for the sea is really cool.

  2. How fun! Congrats on the finish!

  3. This is super cute. I love the names on the boats.

  4. Never tired of finishes! I'm with you on applique - I avoid it at all costs!

  5. wow you are on a roll! NEVER tired of finishes and this is a fun one!

  6. Oh, hey! This turned out really neat. :)
