Blogger’s Quilt Festival – ROYGBIV Quilt

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa and welcome to my little corner of the blogosphere!  My blog is named after my daughter, her name means Bitter Sweet, hence Sew BitterSweet Designs was born.  I am an aspiring pattern designer and have a few patterns for sale in my Craftsy shop. Along with patterns for sale I also have over 60 free tutorials on my tutorials page, please feel free to check them out!

I decided to enter the ROYGBIV Category for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival because I truly do have a thing for rainbows. Here is my quilt:

Rainbow Star Burst Quilt - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comThis quilt was made for the Riley Blake Challenge with the Modern Quit Guild. I have a love for straight line quilting and quilt this on my home machine – a Janome Horizon 7700.  I used King Tut thread by Superior Threads.

One of my goals this year was to sew as much out of my stash as possible – I think in the first 4.5 months of the year I have bought fabric for only 2 projects, a hand bag that I finished 2 weeks ago and a quilt I am working on now.  The backing for this quilt, utilized 2 of the fabrics from the challenge that did not fit in on the front and a lovely piece of Art Gallery solids that had been hidden in my stash for the last 2 years. I decided to use white thread on the front and back of the quilt and I have to say I love the back almost as much as the front.

Back - Rainbow Star Burst - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comLater this summer I plan to enter this into our local county fair, I live in Thurston County in Washington. It will be the first time I enter a quilt into a judged show and I am excited for the professional feedback, I think it will be an interesting experience.

    I love everything about this- the quilting, the choice of binding, and the back. I have a thing for rainbows too- and I love when they’re slightly subtle like this.
