Rainbow Bright / Beauties Pageant 38

As I predicted last week, the quilt tops are piling up!

I just finished piecing this colorful strip-and-flip baby quilt. Is there a baby in my life who needs a rainbow quilt? Well, no. But it was a delight to assemble this fabric pull and a cinch to piece the strips.

The quilt requires a 2-inch strip from each fabric, not enough to make a dent in my yardage on hand. To bust through a bit more fabric, I cut enough for two quilt tops and two pieced backs. : )

To make your own strip-and-flip quilt, check out Allison Harris’s tutorial here.

What have you been working on? If you, like me, are producing just tops this summer, we want to see them. Share your finishes big and small in the linky below!

I thought you’d appreciate a real-life look at a FBTB photo shoot. Ten minutes before I had to leave for a vet appointment, I was taping this project to the wall in my family room and taking pictures!

Linking up to Favorite Finish and Main Crush Monday ...

  1. What a fun quilt to make. I tend to make the simpler patterns and this one is perfect for me. It will be a nice one to quilt too - not terribly big! Enjoy your weekend Michelle.

  2. Love your rainbow baby quilt, Michelle! That looks like my kind of baby quilt!

  3. How adorable is that top!!! I am cranking out the tops but not many finishes! Hope to quilt a throw size tomorrow.

  4. I love the strip-and-flip idea. Always wanted to do one... Your rainbow version is gorgeous! xo Melanie

  5. Hi Michelle! I hope the vet appointment was just routine for Rose. I have never made a strip-and-flip quilt. It's interesting how it meets in the center - I love that striped fabric. Hmm, it seems like I should make one of these and I have a few jelly rolls hanging out in my stash. They may have just found themselves a project. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Lovely Michelle & having a couple of baby quilts on hand is not a bad thing. I've given them to friends sometimes who aren't crafty for new grandchildren & they are always appreciated. Take care.

  7. What a happy palette! This is the perfect pattern for a baby quilt. :-)

  8. That strip and flip quilt is so cute! Your picture of it on the wall is enough for me to want to give it a try!
