Star Crossed Rainbow Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size Star Crossed Rainbow with a white background!


This quilt is made with one half of a Kona jelly roll.  The pattern gives the layout of each color to create this exact quilt and utilizes strip piecing for quick assembly.


This quilt top laid on the stair rail for quite awhile because I couldn't figure out how to quilt it.  It wasn't asking for feathers, swirls, or flowers, and I ended up choosing interlocking loops for a more modern look.


The Benartex Gradation Rainbow backing is simply amazing.  It's a shame that it doesn't photograph nearly as beautiful as it is.  I'm sure this also makes it hard for online shops to sell.  It's one of those fabrics ya gotta see to really appreciate.  It just glows.


Here's Craftsy's picture for reference.  But cry me a river, they're all out ... I bought every yard they had.  ;)  I plan to list some of it in my pattern shop soon.


Quilt Stats:

Pattern:   Star Crossed Rainbow, pattern available here.
Size:  Lap size, approx 60" x 60"
Fabric:  Kona Cotton
Quilting:  Interlocking loops on Gratitude.
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 100% Cotton in white
Backing:  Benartex Gradations in Rainbow

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

Hexagon Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size giant daisy hexi quilt, made as a graduation gift for a young lady whom I babysat when she was kindergarten age!  It's a happy quilt for a lovely, happy lady!


The quilt is made from half hexies, cut with my Accuquilt Go! cutter which I ♥♥!  I pieced the quilt in strips from top to bottom rather than side to side so the rows could hang on the design wall after the row was pieced.




Quilt Stats:

Pattern:   Hexies, cut with my Accuquilt Go! cutter
Size:  Lap size, approx 50" x 70"
Fabric:  Kona Cotton and Jennifer Paganelli prints
Quilting:  Daisies in navy thread, done on Gratitude.
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 100% Cotton
Backing:  Jennifer Paganelli print

Craftsy is having a Summer Sale with up to 50% off quilt kits and supplies!


I snagged this Colonial Manor Stash Builder Bundle in black and cream.  I bought the red and cream Colonial Manor bundle on the last sale and pulled it out today to use in the Christmas in July Quilt Along over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  So, of course, I needed to replenish the stash with this type of fabric since I have ZERO fabrics of this type.  'Cause of course I need to have it on hand for the next QAL that comes up!


Kona Cotton Solids are 20% off as the Basic of the Month for July at Fat Quarter Shop, and ya rarely, if ever, find Kona Cotton for a lower price!
