Back in December, I released my On the Edge quilt pattern and I made this rainbow pillow to give away at the Houston MQG Christmas party.
It was a big hit and I've always wanted to make another rainbow version of that quilt. So when I found out that Riley Blake Designs was coming out with a new basics line called Pindrop from Christopher Thompson (AKA The Tattooed Quilter), I knew that's what I wanted to make!
You all know I'm a huge fan of solids and simple prints. I think they really show off a pattern well. And these little pins are so adorable!
I definitely couldn't resist a rainbow baby-sized project with these happy colors! I decided to use the following Pindrop colors: Superpink, Daisy, Lemon Zest, Lettuce, Scuba, and Silver. Then I finished if off with a Confetti Cottons Charcoal Binding.
I usually use white as my background color, but I absolutely love the way this silver looks as the neutral. All together, the colors give this baby quilt a retro rainbow vibe.
Gah! These pins are so cute!
You'll be happy to know that this project is doggo approved! This is also the first time that I have done diagonal quilting like this and I could not be happier with it! You will for sure be seeing more diagonal quilting from me!
It definitely works well as a play mat too!
This new Pindrop collection is available now! So many possibilities! The Scuba color was definitely my favorite color. What's is yours?
Until later, happy sewing!
