Rainbow Polka Dots – Baby Quilt Part 2

Of the 3 baby quilts that I did this month, I think this one is my favorite. And since it was for a quilter, I really wanted to have some fun with the quilting.

Rainbow Dots

So I decided to do the quilt as a quilting sampler. Each color would get a different treatment.

Purple got some paisley.
Polka Dots - PurplePiano keys on the blue.

Polka Dots - BlueA little McTavishing in the green.

Polka Dots - GreenNo sampler quilt would be complete with out some feathers!!!! (I LOVE feathers! But, you already knew that!)

Polka Dots - YellowOrange pebbles. You know, just because.  And because it matched the fabric so well.

Polka Dots - OrangeDiamond cross hatching on the red. I used the dots to measure them out.

Polka Dots - RedI also quilted the dots the same way. You can see all the wonderful texture on the back of the quilt. Now that my quilting is getting better I just love solid backs!

Polka Dots - BackBut the front just steals the show. This may, just may, be my favorite quilt ever. The binding was even done rainbow. About 12″ pieces of each of the 6 colors.

Polka DotsUnfortunately, the recipient loves it. Which means she’ll be keeping it rather than sending it back to me. Maybe I’ll just have to do it again in king size!!!
