My Rainbow Quilt is Completed

Happy September 1st, Yay Fall is on the Way!

I am back from Vacation and break. We had a wonderful trip to two lighthouses and I will post about those because they were quite the hike into see them. What an amazing day that was and the next, it was gorgeous weather in San Francisco. I just love the weather there, it is so easy to get outside and enjoy the beauty of Gods wonderful world he created for us while we await his return for the Christians the believers in Jesus Christ as being Lord and Savior.

Genesis 2:4
These are the generations of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.


 Finished Quilt 
Here is the free pattern for the rainbow quilt. Windham Fabrics/Briar Rose, I used the fabrics suggested because I fell in love with that fabric, so cheery!
Here is the quilt before it was turned and squared off, once it was turned it became more than just squares, but diamonds. 
Diamonds now.... I cut the quilt into a square. I notice the pattern did not follow a real rainbow, but that was fine with me it was still beautiful. I plan on making it again with some slightly different fabric in a real rainbow, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet.

This quilt will not be on my bed, but the next one might because this one is actually to small for a queen size bed.

I made my quilt using my Janome 6260QC which I love by the way! I Have had it since 2009. The very first sewing machine I had was from Sears and it broke after 25 years. I loved that sewing machine and miss it terribly. It was computerized and at that time I didn't understand what computerized was. I quickly learned.



Here is a photo of the old sewing machine it was from Sears, Roebuck and CO.

I still have the manual for it, it was able to embroider a sampler & write names on clothing with it.




Happy Sunday and God Bless
