Bella Skill Builder - HQM Quilt 13

 It is Week 13 of the Happy Quilting Marathon and I am so excited about this finish because I am pretty sure it is my oldest WIP at the moment.  So happy to have it done!!!! It's my Bella Skill Sampler from 2017!!! 

We all know I just love a good rainbow quilt!!!  I used lots of shades of Bella Solids to make this solid sampler.  It blew me away how many shades of solids I had in my stash.  So fun!!! 

And I had so much fun learning lots of new skills while making each of the blocks!!!!   I made a small version and a large version of each block so I could make this twin size ;)   You can search Bella Skill Builder on my blog to see each of the block posts and the different colors and size alterations I use in each block ;)

I decided to stick with the rainbow vibe, and use a rainbow variegated thread.  Simple loop de loops for the win, especially with such a bold thread choice.  I love how it just ties all of the blocks together in this fun sampler. 

I actually didn't have a binding made for this quilt, so I went to my scrap bin, and found a bunch of grey-brownish prints.   I figured might as well bring in the last of the neutrals in the binding.  I think it was a perfect way to finish it up!!!  And now I am just thrilled because I can say my longest WIP is no longer 5 years old.  Yippee!!!! 

And that is Quilt #13 - Bella Skill Builder ;)  13 Down and only 13 more quilts to go in the Happy Quilting Marathon :)   I have reached the half way point and I am just so happy!!!!  

And that is it for today, thanks for popping in to share this finish with me!!! 

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!

Pin It!

  1. Oh my gosh, what a beautiful, happy quilt!! I would not have thought of those colors for binding, but they are absolutely perfect! And your free motion quilting is also beautiful! I've been quilting for 30 years, but just recently got brave enough to try free motion on my home sewing machine. I started with feathers, because believe it or not, the whole meander thing is hard for me 🤣. Great job!!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
