Sugaridoo QAL Rainbow Quilt is Bound
Sugaridoo, as hosted by Bernina, ran this QAL for a year.
Each month Sugaridoo gave us a new row to make and supplied us with patterns and videos. So I now have 12 new patterns in my files to be used whenever I see fit—and they are all interesting and lively. Almost any of them would make a quilt all by themselves. For me, there were some learning curves as well, and that’s always good.
Somehow I made two rows each month—one in this solid rainbow version, and one in all Cotton+Steel. I sat on these finished tops for a bit as I thought about how to quilt them. I didn’t want any quilting that distracted from these very graphic blocks. And I like to make soft quilts that are functional, so I didn’t want heavy quilting—assuming I have the patience for that, which I clearly do not. I chose just simple wavy lines and am very pleased with the result. I will do that in the other quilt as well.
Trimming up the sides:
Admiring how the soft, traditional backing I chose works to soften the graphic nature of the top.
Putting on the binding. I used the same dark grey that Sugaridoo used for the accents in each row. I think it is working well.
So now I have some hand-sewing for night tv watching.
AND a solution for quilting the second Sugaridoo quilt that is all organized and ready to go.

Well that looks wonderful! I like the grey binding. Wish I had enough of my contrast fabric to have used it for binding, but there is not enough at all. Congratulations!

Lovely! Fresh and fun!
Perfect choice for your quilting on such an array of colour and bold piecing, and your backing is so fun and catches all the colours from the top. I love surprise backs!
