A Friday Finish - Finally!

I'm excited to share that I finished Rainbow Zigzags up this week.  I started on this quilt in February of 2020 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project with a few orange and green 4.5 inch half square triangles.


I kept going throughout the year until I had 9 rows in every color of the rainbow (including two blue rows - dark and light).


From there it wasn't too hard to sew the rows together, get this quilt layered and basted and work on quilting it.   Today it is finished!

49 x 72

And a peek at the backing:


Rainbow Zigzags needs a trip through the washer and dryer, and the label finished up.  I'll do the label when I know for sure where this quilt will live.  Meanwhile, I'm so very happy to have a finished quilt before January is through!
