This quilt inspired my own purchase of the Seaside fabric collection which I showed you last week in Love Multiplied.  This is one of the cutest fabric collections I've ever seen.

The beautiful backing is sailboats and lighthouses and girls on white.

Rainbow Quilty Hearts Quilt Along in Twin Size!

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


This Valentine's Day I'm working on a rainbow Quilty Hearts twin quilt.  This is a Quilt Along hosted by Emily of Quilty Love over on Instagram.  Well, the Quilt Along has ended, and I'm not done!  Pattern design submissions have been my priority over the last few weeks, so I haven't been sewing much.


This quilt is made from a repurposed Craftsy Frequency quilt kit.  I often buy quilt kits on sale and repurpose them to other projects.  This quilt needs three hues of eight colorways, and the Frequency quilt kit had all but three of the fabrics I needed, and the missing ones were easily pulled from my stash.  The background is Kona Shadow.

I'm also making a twin size rainbow Quilty Hearts quilt with a Moda Cross Weave in black background.  The black and white threads woven together give it a deeply textured gray look which is fantastic.  You can see all of the colors that Cross Weave comes in right here.


These quilts will be for sale in my shop in March since I don't have a quilting machine to finish them right now.  I am upgrading my longarm, so I am unable to quilt for a few weeks.  I will be quilting faster than ever with the new machine which flies 600 stitches per minute faster than my previous machine. :)
