Rainbow Quilt Top Finish!

I have been working on so many small blocks and projects, I have not had a finish of any kind in forever! 

Sewing without a finish makes me feel even further behind with sewing projects!  They are all piling up and no end in sight! 

Until today! I was able to finish this top in less than a day! SAY WHAT!?! 

Read more to find out how! 



Last weekend I went to Pineapple Fabrics for their Outlet Sale!  It was insanely busy and a ton of fun!  I wanted to bring home EVERYTHING but I was smart enough to pick up these two rolls! One is a Best Of Allison Glass ( everything she does is BEST OF in my opinion) and a roll of Tone on Tone strips.  

I did not have a plan in mind but decided on simple is better! 



Within an evening I had completed so much!  Then Heather from The Sewing Loft threw down a CHALLENGE to see who could finish first and it was ON! 



To be fair she had a full days start on her project LOL!

She did finish before me but everyone in the house ( including me) is pretty impressed with the stunning colors and that it is done!

It is very simple to make! Strips sewn in groups of 3 or 4 and then trimmed to 5" rectangles then sewn as rows! It is stupid easy!  I am in LOVE!!!!!


I pieced the quilt top using my FAVORITE Aurifil 50wt #2600 that I am renaming Go-Go Grey! It is my hands down Go-To thread for all of my projects! Love this color!



I picked up some other goodies from the sale and will be dazzling you even more soon!

have you had any fast finish projects lately?

The colors just glow! Beautiful quilt top and I think Go-Go grey has a lovely ring to it. :)

This is beautiful! Love all that color! But . . . Allison Glass . . . no wonder. I do all right up until the quilting stage, then I get stymied by my backlog of customer quilts, and never get around to quilting anything of my own. It's a dilemma. The to-be-quilted pile grows larger . . .
