Before my vacation last week, I think I mentioned my one goal was to complete the Rainbow in the Dark top. When I had the setback with the purple blocks, I didn’t think that was going to happen. But late in the week, I sucked it up, got ripping, and sewed everything back together properly.
This one was a little too big for the design bed, so I had to get creative.
And after an afternoon of steady sewing…
The completed top fit the bed much better. Finished, it’s about 72″ wide x 84″ tall. A nice decent size to throw on the bed for an extra layer, or toss over a family on movie night. I’m keeping the binding simple with plain black (I have to pick some more up on pay day – this used up what I had in my stash) and Mom has a nice chunk of a simple white plaid with red and blue stripes for the back.
Hopefully I can get it quilted this weekend and in the mail shortly after.
