Rainbow Adorn : A Finished Quilt

I love when I'm able to finish a mini quilt for a swap, well ahead of the deadline. I always try to get a good start, because sometimes life happens and sewing/quilting can only happen in small chunks of time. Well luckily this time my kiddos where mostly happy (minus a teething sick baby who wanted to be held during naptime) so I was able to get most of the cutting and sewing done while they were happily playing.


For this swap I wanted to try and different shape. I was getting a little tired of square and rectangular quilts, thus the hexagon shape. And I wanted to try sewing with triangles, as I have kinda avoided them up until now. And now I want to make a scrappy quilt made with triangles!

So when I was looking through my copy of Simply Retro and came across the Adorn mini quilt, I knew I was just the project perfect for what I wanted to accomplish. Made with scrappy triangles and background triangles, plus I could work the shape into a hexagon! Win, win for me! And this is the reason I join swaps, I love trying out new techniques and pushing/building new skills.

I had a few problems, but nothing a seam ripper can't fix.

I kept the quilting simple, just some basic straight line with echo straight line quilting in the background. And I love the effect.


Now I can make a few extras and then mail it off closer to the shipping deadline!
