sometimes you make a rainbow on accident.

Dang, November. Where did you go? Oh right, you flew by while I was busy making these new quilts. These quilt friends are headed to New York very very soon. I just finished sewing the bindings and washing them last night. They still need to have all their little threads tucked in, labels sewn on, and mega lint rolling. Please forgive the rough studio photos.
65" x 65", 16 hand dyed colors
also 65" x 65", 16 hand dyed colors (I like this one best, it feels tropical)

there's a pattern here. see the other two for details.
queen size (85" x 92"), 40 hand dyed colors of rainbow goodness

I can't wait to get photos of them on beds. Especially the last one. I'm uncertain about how much I like the last one. It is rather like a rainbow explosion. In my head the colors did not form a rainbow, but I suppose when you gradate between red, yellow, and blue you really ought to expect a rainbow. I realize that now. At first, I felt sick when I realized that I had made a rainbow quilt, when I had intended to make a sunset quilt. But now I am embracing the rainbow. It feels playful and fun and happy. We'll see what the response is, but worst case scenario: I have a new quilt for my bed.


  1. dang! pretty awesome! i like the rainbow sunset one because of the shibori. they all look fabulous

  2. whew! Beautiful! Where are they headed in NY? Anywhere that I might be able to see them?

  3. Hi Rebecca! First they are going to Deck the Halls, 12 Days of Shopping, Dec 10-22, noon to 5pm
    The Old School, 32 Prince Street, Manhattan. Then I'm not sure where they will be. I sent them to MOCIUN who is working on opening up a shop.
