Mimi's Rainbow Quilt

I finally got around to taking some photos of the first quilt I made, this rainbow zigzag blanket for Mimi. (Thanks for the reminder, Megan!)

I have to admit that so far this is my favorite of the quilts that I've worked on; I love the fabrics and the cheery colors.

I pieced the top and then took it to a local quilting shop and had them machine quilt it for me. I smile every time I see the words included in the stitching.

If you're interested, here are the posts from when I was planning and working on this project:


  1. stunning! No, really. This really is an amazing quilt. I hope she treasures it.

  2. Aaaaaah, I love this quilt so much!

  3. Thanks for the kind words, everyone! :)

  4. oh my gosh. i love this. nothing better than zigzags, but rainbows??? perfect!!!

  5. This quilt is so beautiful, I love it! Your daughter is a very lucky little girl, I'm sure she'll treasure it always. I've just pieced the top of a very simple rainbow squares quilt, I think I'll have to try zig-zags next! :)
