Rainbow Roller Rink Baby Quilt

Zoe is 22 months old and I finally got her baby quilt done! It’s still a baby quilt if she’s under 2 years old, right? It’s been done for a month or 2, but I’m just getting around to sharing.

Zoe wouldn’t let me take the binky out of her mouth for the shots as it really was nap time and she was getting in the mood for some serious napping here…

This is Elizabeth Hartman’s Roller Rink pattern from her Modern Patchwork book. I made it baby blanket sized – which made a great excuse to FMQ!!

I didn’t follow a pattern for the free motion quilting, per se, but just made a loose design of clouds. Get it? Clouds, rainbow….well, it works for me.

Ms. Hartman has a few different color combos in the book and online, but I really loved the colorful ‘scrappy’ version she has in her book with tan and white boarders, so I stole that idea for my rainbow. I used a Kona white and a RK yarn dyed linen in Flax. I love that linen. It’s the most perfect tan in existence.

Yes, I just got all nerdy over linen. Ugh.

I’m really happy with it and so is the baby (because she’s not two yet…)

I did the binding in the linen as well, and Zoe picked out the backing fabric. Yes, really. She loved this crazy fruit fabric from Alex’s quilt, so I gave her a whole back in it.

Being that I cut all of these little pieces during the summer when Ms. Viking was in the shop, I have a LOT leftover….and made another quilt to be posted tomorrow!!

Right now though, nap time….

  1. What a beautiful quilt. I have a box full of my son’s jeans that are all cut up in squares just waiting to be put together. I need a teacher. 😉
