Rainbow Rose Mini – A Finish!

I missed the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along held by the Irish Modern Quilt Guild in the middle of last year but I loved all the versions that I saw. When I had to make gifts as part of Pay It Forward Craft I decided to put a mini version together for my off-line local recipient, Michelle.

This quilt measures 25 inches square and is quilted using a straight stitch. I really like the way it turned out. It was a hard one to give away, but aren’t they all!

I took it out for a lunch time photo shoot in a spot with dappled shade.

The wind blew, the shade shifted

So I took it home for another go. This time it was late afternoon and the colours seem a lot duller.

In the end I stood behind a bush, took a styled shot and gave it up.
