I did a simple quilting stitch using the walking foot. It was a matter of just sewing up and down each column of the rainbow and then into the middle of each block. Even though it was a simple design it took just on 8 hours to complete the quilting. In the picture below the quilting can be seen if you look closely. Being white thread on a white background it does not show up too well.
And now for the completed quilt. The same fabric was used to bind it as the backing with a bit left over to do another small project. More about that later.
I am feeling very pleased with myself as my goal for August was to complete the quilting but I did manage to finish the quilt off completely with a week left in the month. I really enjoyed the rainbow challenge even though I did not participate this year hopefully it will be running again next year. A great excuse the use up all those scraps that keep appearing no matter how fast you sew.
Now to tidy up the living room, return my machine and all the other bits and pieces to the sewing room and start work on a few smaller projects that have been in the pipeline for a while.
Linking with Elm Street Quilts OMG for August and Oh Scrap.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
