Over the Rainbow Finish

Yesterday I had a mountain of laundry.  When the kids were home I had set laundry days.  But now that they are gone. hubby and I don't create enough laundry to warrant two laundry days.  So now I just do it when the hamper overflows.  One of the many adjustments this change has brought about.  
So while the washing machine went swish swish, and the dryer tumbled I quilted organic lines in Over the Rainbow.
After auditioning a couple of bindings; a fun stripe, that sadly there was not enough of, I chose a bright green on green stripe.
Fortunately the rain showers took a long enough break I was able to go outside for a fun photo shoot.
 All those bright colors popped with the dreary overcast skies.  
 Making the name Over the Rainbow all that more fitting.


  1. a nice colorful quilt - when I had children at home I had set days for things too - now I do when I feel like - sometimes I liked it better when I knew I always cleaned the house on Monday --- or whenever - now I look at the floor at times and wonder when did I last vacuum and where did all that dust come from!

  2. Beautiful! Perfect thing to do while waiting for laundry!

  3. Very sweet! Yay for a finish! It’s a good thing the washer and dryer do most of the work!

  4. What a great way to use various solids that build up in a stash. It is so colorful and happy!

  5. Great way to use that laundry time! Beautiful quilt
