Custom Twin-Size Rainbow Strip-N-Flip {Finished!}

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


This quilt is one of my Quarter 1 Goals for the 2015 Finish Along.  HERE is my original post.

The Rainbow Strip-N-Flip twin quilt is finished!  She is so very sweet and adorable.  We'd love to keep this quilt, but this one has another home.
Picture overload!  I love them all!
My customer chose wool batting because they live in Alaska.  I plan to use wool in future quilts for us.  It has a higher loft, is so cozy, and is still machine wash/dry.  The quilting is more visible with wool batting than it is with cotton because of the higher loft.
 I love the whimsy the dots add.
On a twin bed, the white and some of the rainbow will hang over the sides.  I like the rainbow running clear to the top and bottom of the quilt.
My customer provided the fabric for this quilt and placed the strips in the order she liked before mailing them to me.  I am happy to make quilts out of customer-supplied fabric as long as it is high-quality 100% cotton fabric.
Rainbow confetti dot backing is a perfect match.
Quilt Stats:
  • Pattern:  Strip-N-Flip, a free tutorial by Cluck Cluck Sew.
  • Size:  Twin, 65" x 87"
  • Fabric:  Riley Blake strips, white dot, and confetti backing.
  • Batting:  Quilters Dream Wool
  • Quilting:  Allover medium meandering stitch in white thread on Mrs.Singer, my antique 31-15 mounted on a long-arm quilting frame.
  • Binding:  Double fold variegated pink, blue, purple, attached by machine for durability.
  • Value:  Bright and sweet!
This quilt was a custom order in my Etsy shop, Busy Hands Quilts.

This is my first finish in the 2015 Finish-Along!  I'll link this project up at the end of March.

This is a great pattern - so easy and fun to do. I like that you made it bigger with some extra fabric. The rainbow colors are gorgeous, too!

Nice job making quick work of the quilting. That binding is really near, I love the idea of a verigated binding on this colorful quilt!

I love your customer's choice of colors. Those oranges are spectacular (actually, the whole spectrum of colors is fantastic).

Wow! I really like this quilt. The colors are fantastic and I like the way you did the strips. Your customer is sure to love it! I haven't tried wool batting yet but would love to give it a try sometime. Thanks for linking up to MCM!

So pretty and cheerful. I love the poof quality of the wool batting. I have a Singer 15-91. She's pegged at a 1953 model. She lives in a cabinet and my Juki gets to take trips on my Grace frame. Thanks for sharing!

That quilt is FANTASTIC! I would never have thought of cutting the strips into chunks and then adding the inset fabric to widen the entire quilt - it's brilliant, and it looks great - especially with the varied width of the insets. I don't think you could have found a more perfect backing, either - your customer must be THRILLED!

It looks so great because your color gradations are masterful. I like the simple quilting, too. That keeps the focus on your wonderful colors.
