Black and White Rainbow Splash Mini Quilt

Remember this little block I made at the end of December with the blue background and used black and white fabrics for the rainbow? 

 

 

 

Well, I couldn't decide what to do with it...but I couldn't stop thinking about how adorable it was! I have been making a bunch of pillows recently, so I didn't want to go that route. 

I finally realized that I wanted to make a few more blocks with different background colors! Since I already used a blue color, I decided to go with blues and greens, and I ended up with this 4 block mini quilt!

 

 

That white Blossom print is my favorite low volume print, but I didn't have enough of it for all four blocks, so I decided to mix my fabrics up a bit! I ended up using black and white prints from Riley Blake Basics in Medium Dot, Kisses, and Blossom with the blue backgrounds, and then the Large Hashtag, 1/8 stripe, and Swiss Dot in the green backgrounds. For the Confetti Cotton solids, I used Azure, Blueberry, Riley Lime, and Emerald City.

There are so many pretty Confetti Cottons Solids in their collection that I may very well mock up a throw size quilt with a rainbow of colors in the background! The Riley Lime is one of my very favorite colors, so I just had to add it in this project.

 

When I was thinking about quilting, I knew that I didn't want to do anything diagonal that was going to complete with the rainbows. Since it is small project, small quilting works great since I don't have to worry about it being snuggly.

So I ended up going with a 1/2" grid in white 50wt Aurifil thread.

 

 

 

It's so fun as a wall hanging! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm really happy with how this came out! I think the black and white arches definitely puts a fun spin on this Rainbow Splash Pattern! The pattern is with testers (see their work at #rainbowsplashquilt) and it'll be for sale on February 25th! 

If you missed seeing my adorable Rainbow Splash Lap quilt that I made with the GrlPwr fabric back in December, you can check it out here!

Until later, happy sewing!
