Rainbow strip quilt

I made this single bed quilt for our Seniors' Club Bazaar.  It was a design I saw on Pinterest, and I really liked the pastel rainbow pattern of three strips each of pink, lilac, blue, green yellow and peach.  We have a good supply of cotton fabric so I knew I would have plenty of choice. 

I made each strip separately using the flip and sew method and then joined the strips together.  The outside binding is the same white as the sashing, but it's about 3" wide compared to inside sashing of 1".  To keep the outside batting in place I sewed a button beside each set of three strips in the same colour. 

The Bazaar was last Saturday and was the second prize.  The winner was one of older members, 101 and delightful.

Very pretty, Diane! I like the buttons, they are a nice detail. I think it will keep the winner in a good mood over the winter!

OOOH! I love that quilt! It is so happy! 4243 I am working on 2 quilts for Christmas, then I hope to start on a bed-sized pastel quilt from my old vintage sheets. If you ever need old cotton fabric. . . Hope you are doing well. I sure have been thinking a lot about you lately. Really missed not having you visit this year!! Hugsxxx
