Rainbow quilt aka the one going the other way

 Oh I think I love this quilt a leeeeetl too much πŸ˜€ I’ve been collecting Helen Steel hand printed fabric for years. I was waiting for a pattern which would show off the fabulous patterns. The Glasgow Modern Quilt guild set a lock down challenge to make a rainbow quilt. I knew I wanted to use these fabrics  but what pattern? I looked and looked and looked, eventually I found a morning star block by Tracey jay quilts, it’s fpp. I chose the 16 inch version to get the quilt the right size. I know these photos are dreadfulπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ honestly one day I will try a bit more and the light just now is shocking .... scroll on to see the hedgehogs.

There were some hedgehogs in blue.


Ah here is one who goes the other way πŸ˜‚ in every animal panel, 
Helen always has one who walks the other way. My super chum Jacky loved these as do I. I bought extra panels so I could fussy cut the wayward hedgehogs πŸ˜‚ you can also see here that I matched the binding. It was a bit of a faff but I think it was worth it.

I think the ???? Perfectly sum up 2020 ...

I love it, so much I’ll include it twice ! 

This was no 8 on my Q3 FAL list
