Blossom Heart Quilts, Home Time, May 3

There are two items I completed this year for my family.

The first was a Zigzag Rainbow quilt for my granddaughter Sarah's fourteenth birthday last July.  She was a new Beattles fan and chose a rainbow for her room.  Here she was presenting it at our quilt group show and tell.  I loved making something she enjoys so much.

My second choice was a table runner made for my daughter for her Christmas dinner.

This was a kit from Connecring Threads, the first kit I had ever made.  For backing I used a reclaimed valence with an African feel.  I bound it with the same stripe.  This meant a lot to Beth because she had spent time in Ivory Coast as a nurse on the Mercy Ship, assisting in surgeries on people who had no other hope for their severe disfigurements.  

I machine quilted it and it looked elegant on her Christmas table.

  1. Wow, that rainbow quilt for your granddaughter is just gorgeous! I bet she loves it! And how special that the Christmas table runner for your daughter is so meaningful. Beautiful projects!

  2. such a colourful quilt would brighten even the dullest day and the table runner is lovely too

  3. I love rainbow quilts, it sounds like your granddaughter loves hers too. It's a good size quilt, did you quilt it yourself? That's a lovely table runner Paula, the colours coordinate beautifully, and I like how you matched the binding and the lovely story behind it, you must be so proud of your daughter. I have only done a couple if kits myself, they have to be pretty special for me to buy one.
