66 x 81 (after washing)
Look at this gorgeous quilt! Before we get started on what I did and the changes I made, you can find the original quilt tutorial here. She used 2 Classic Rainbow Kona Cotton Jelly Rolls. I found a list of the colors in that roll and made my own. This quilt is for sale in my shop. (SOLD)
I was having trouble deciding what color to quilt with: either medium gray or mono poly. I finally decided on the gray thread because it is so much easier to deal with. It looks great on every color!
Then I had to decide on the binding. It was between red, blue and a blue-green jade color. I can't remember the kona name at this moment. I only had enough blue and red, so I chose blue. I like this choice too!
I found this black cross hatch in my stash. I know it looks gray here, but it's really black and white. It was extra wide so I didn't need as much fabric as I thought, but I did need 7 or 8 inches more. I really wanted to put a rainbow on the back even though it was extra work cutting all those strips. Yep, please with this choice too!
Kyrstal says this quilt is fast and easy. I disagree. I was anything but fast. There are 41 strips to sew together and then 36 rows that had to be pinned, each seam of every row. I was pretty tired of pinning, sewing, and ironing over and over. I ended up sewing a few at a time. But I do think this quilt is worth making! I would recommend using Kona because these colors are very saturated. I substituted a couple non-kona colors and there was quite a difference. Although I did get them blended in pretty good.
This was my One Monthly Goal. It also fits into the Year of the Stash. I hope you are using your stash this year too, one quilt at a time!
