Good Friday Finish

This week I finished this rainbow quilt for my son's playgroup, Rainbow Playgroup, co-incidence? I think not. It is going to be the first prize in our Mother's Day Raffle. 

I based it on the Beeline pattern from the Scrap Republic book. Rainbow strip center and white/neutral base fabrics for the border.  

I backed it with this gorgeous floral print I picked up at Spotlight. I have a little bit left over that I'm hoping to use in a pieced back for my great granny square quilt.

I also made this cushion using a scrap vomit block. The colours and prints were carefully chosen though as this is going to be a birthday gift. 

Using Katy's tutorial, I made an envelope back. It came together really quickly. I see more of these in my future.

This Ipad pouch is also going to be a gift. I have been wanting to make one for my sister for ages but have been too scared as it calls for a zip! Her birthday is coming up so I made myself sit down and make a start on it after I did the cushion. I ended up finishing it as it went together quite quickly. I also see more of these in my future. You can find the tutorial at Freckled Whimsy.
