When we put up all of my new school room shelves I decided I needed rainbow quilts in the wall space above the desks since my books are arranged in color order. What I had in mind for one side was this quilt from Purl. I drew up a pattern to fit my wall and raided my scrap bin. My mom also sent me a box of her scraps and I bought a few more.
This is my first time piecing curves, so it’s far from perfect. My seam allowances on my rainbow ended up a smudge less than 1/4″, so my top came out a bit ripply. I could have ripped it apart and started over, I guess, but I’m more into getting things done than I am into perfection. I just made good use of my iron and quilted concentric circles to remedy the waviness.
I like it on my wall. It is bright and cheery.
Who knows when I’ll get to making something to hang above the other desk…
