Rainbow Rose Finished

Rainbow Rose has been a journey around the color wheel, though I have to admit I kind of took my own trip.  I was using what I had on hand so I'm a little shy on some colors (yellow and pinks for sure) but I've enjoyed quilting along and seeing everyone else's version .  The Quilt Along, hosted by Modern Quilters Ireland ran from June 1 until today (July 20) and has been a relaxed, fun project.  I did all of the piecing in England and the quilting in Canada, using a decorative stitch (hand quilting) on my Brother SQ9120 #45 on either side of the seams.  Rainbow Rose finished at 40" by 40" and will be used to brighten up the dining table.

Linking up with the Rainbow Rose Final Link-Up at Modern Quilters Ireland.
