Finish Friday - One Block Wonders Final Link Up

Sandy @ Upstairs Hobby Room has been hosting a monthly block QAL for the past year, called One Block Wonders.

I previously made two blocks, which you can read about below:

And now:  Rainbow Stacks.  I added a wide border so that it finishes around 25-inches for a small baby quilt.

I didn't know how to quilt it, and in desperation, I just went with stippling in a variegated thread.  I'm not happy with the result.  I should have done something different in the blue and grey sections.  Oh well, it's done, and it will keep some baby warm in a car seat or stroller.

I used the following Kona solids:

  • Pepper and Coal
  • Sky, Robin Egg, Jamaica, Lagoon, Pacific, Riveria

I'm linking up with the One Block Wonders Final Link Up:

  1. It looks amazing!! So I Wouldn't worry about the thread....but I get it something's we envision it and when it doesn't quite work they way we thought....but it it a day or two and you'll see it looks amazing!!😃😍

  2. It turned out absolutely lovely! And I understand not liking it - we are our own worst critics, especially when a quilt is hot off the press! Give it a few days and I'm sure you'll be a bit more forgiving, especially since it is a wonderful little quilt. :)

  3. Sure maybe you could have done something else but I think it turned out great just the way it is.

  4. Looks great! Your diamond path quilts were my favorite!

  5. I think that Angela Walters "finished is better than perfect" quote is good to remember on occasions like this! I am sure whomever is lucky enough to receive the quilt will enjoy its warmth and the love it was made and gifted with.

  6. The gradation of blues makes this quilt so eye catching. When I saw it in my feed I just had to go there.

  7. This is a beautiful mini quilt!

  8. This looks great in once colour- your blues all look great.

  9. I've enjoyed watching you work on these one block wonders, this year. I do love the variegated thread across the quilt. This will be a perfect little cover quilt for a baby this winter. Congrats on your finish.

  10. This is a very striking quilt.I just love all blues. I haven't worked much with variegated threads,but have a couple in my stash of threads that I am hoping to get out soon to quilt the huge pile of quilt tops that I have waiting in the wings.Thanks for sharing and linking up with this week's TGIFF.

  11. Those blues are amazing! This little quilt is going to make a baby very happy and warm. Don't worry too much about the will grow on you. Besides the stippling looks great!

  12. The blues pop beautifully and I love your quilting.

  13. I think you are being too hard on yourself. There is nothing wrong with a good stipple now and then! :)
