Go Kites

It's time for another rainbow quilt! I decided to pull out Go Kites as I knew just what I wanted to do with it. Rainbow fabrics and lots of white space to play with in a block layout? That's my favorite type of playground.

I'm not sure what this pattern is actually called, as the pattern itself didn't say. I decided to name it Go Kites because these blocks are kind of kite blocks. The fabric used is Basic Mixologie by Studio M.

The pattern uses a specialty ruler, but I used my preferred method of foundation paper piecing. It was overall easy and fun and pretty stress-free.

For the quilting, I did simple dot-do-dot designs in the rainbow fabrics as it won't show anyway, and did more intricate multiple filler designs in the white space. It flowed in a diagonal fashion, so it was good to plan this ahead of time.

I really enjoyed working on this quilt and love the end result! I planned the quilting of this quilt (and of the last dozen or so quilts) with ProCreate, and it has had a majorly positive impact on reducing my quilter's analysis paralysis.

The back of this quilt is also very pretty, and overall, this turned out so much better than I had hoped for.


  1. The varying designs in the white backgrounds is so whimsical and fun. Another pretty quilt, Liz!

  2. I agree that Procreate is very helpful for planning out a quilting plan. All the dot to dot quilting looks great and makes a gorgeous design on the back. :)

  3. I love to see your finished quilts. This one is just beautiful, like so many of your other quilts!

  4. I love how you created a variety of background fillers in the white space, Liz!!! Love the binding choice, too.

  5. As always, this is such a wow quilt. So cool that you are overcoming your "analysis paralysis" with procreate. I do love to be able to preview, Procreate will be my friend!
