Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts – almost finished

I have had a blast this year, participating in the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts”. I am on the last round, which means this quilt, I not only contribute too, but also put the top together.

This is Ashley @ Wasn’t Quilt in a Day’s rainbow quilt. She has asked each of us to make a row to be done in one rainbow color…ie) a monochromatic row. When I received it, it measured about 40 x 72 inches and the pink, yellow, green, a small teal band and the purple had been completed.

It’s now almost complete and will measure 72 x 80″.  My favorite part, I contributed so far, are the Anna Maria Horner feathers. I added these to build on the small teal HST band, also its one of Ashley’s favorite designers. Ashley’s favorite color is Cerise, which I added in for the quills.

This weekend, I actually went to Ashley’s house for a sew date and worked on the orange row. These were my low volume and high volume orange fabrics, I chose.

The quilt currently is 3/4’s complete with just the blue row to be completed, then the blue and purple will be added to the bottom. I am loving it!!

    It is so interesting to watch these quilts come together. I love the rainbow look. I truly admire the care you each have given to the quilts you work on. Thank you for sharing.

    It’s looking great, and you’ve been able to set my mind at rest too. I’ve missed Ashley’s blogging, she writes so well and entertainingly, but has been absent for such a long time. I sent her an email months ago to ask how things were but never heard back. Glad she’s well and thriving by the sound of it.
