Rainbows and Flags Quilt Finished!

I started this project over 8 months ago. Never thought it would actually take that long, but I like starting projects before finishing other ones. Anyone else out there like that??? :)

This is the Bundles of Joy quilt pattern by Ryan Walsh. When I first saw this pattern, it instantly reminded me of Swedish flags and I knew this would be the perfect gift for my Swedish sister-in-law and her expecting little boy.

My daughter helped me pick all of the fabrics. She wanted rainbow colors. We couldn't find a red we really liked for the blocks, so we added the red binding. Loved how that turned out. My son arranged the entire top and helped keep them in order.  I was really so happy that my kids wanted to help out so much. I think it makes the quilt that much more special of a gift for their new little cousin!

I added the project to my Threadbias page. Go and check it out!


  1. Your quilts are very pretty. I like to start a new project before finishing the last one, too. I work on five projects at this time and I want to start some more, but then I don't finish anything. Five projects are enough for me.


  2. This blanket just turned out lovely!
    Oh yes, I know that! I can't resist to start new projects before finishing my WIPs and I am always thinking on what I should crafting :)


Ohhhhhh, a comment! You just made my day :)
