Cath's Rainbow Mini

I'd like to introduce you to Cath Hall of Wombat Quilts, a delightful human representation of the generosity and friendliness of quilters. She was one of my bee mates in the Hope Circle of do. Good Stitches last year. I had the honor of meeting her briefly during a family vacation to Portland where she currently resides. I can attest, she's as lovely in person as she is online.
I was cruising through my Instagram feed when Cath's beautiful Flying Geese mini caught my attention. Her status read, "So this is my rainbow mini quilt. I volunteered to be an Angel for the #rainbowminiswap but found out this morning my quilt was not needed. So I am finishing it up..." I audaciously commented, "I need it!" to which I fully expected an appropriately fitting response such as, "Nice try, Afton!" Instead, Cath blew me away by replying, "Afton it is yours if you want it. I will finish it up in the next week and send it to you." It's as awesome in person as it was online. It finishes at 18" square, so many of those triangles are really tiny, and yet impeccably pieced.
Cath's packaging was adorable too!

Here's a peek of the back. It's a bright, collage-style print that coordinates well with the front.
Thank you so much Cath!

  7. Love the quilt and the story behind it! Beautiful job, Cath! Love everything about this, and that back is really interesting! Would love to know what fabrics were used!

  8. Cath is Australian, and we love cheeky audacity. We cannot claim ownership of her creative genius; that is pure Cath and separate from her nationality. :)
