Rainbows

 It seems so long ago now that lockdown started and here we nearly are again in the North East. Do you remember the first few weeks when rainbows appeared everywhere? We had a few in our living room window and in the porch. A symbol of hope and friendship during the most extraordinary times. We would take the kids out for a walk and they would look for the rainbows and point them out excitedly.

About that time, Kristy from Quiet Play released a pattern bundle which contained a foundation pieced rainbow. I didn't hesitate, and bought the pattern immediately.

I made it into a cushion with the beautiful Speckled fabric for the background and some fun weather fabric from Dashwood for the backing (I posted this to Facebook at the time and the back got more attention than the front - I'll forgive my non-quilty friends, but not my mother!)

Hahaha...poor Mom! The pillow is adorable. I love the white stars within the rainbow colors. A really cute pattern that is. The back is cute too but I love the front best.
