Sunny Happy Unicorn

Sunny. Happy. Rainbow Unicorn!

Yummy! I love it!

The bubbly blue background fabric was from stash. It's I Spy... In the Amazon by Northcott Fabrics. I was thinking a pink background would be best, but found this blue and went with it. 

The backing was a recent purchase from Fabric Snob during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales. There was only one piece left and not enough to cover the whole backing. I made it work by pairing it up with a sunny piece from my stash.

Of course, this was finished using the organic wavy line quilting with my walking foot, using a plain white Gutermann Thread both on top and in the bobbin.

Some of my favourite pieces....

The script text print I made on Spoonflower a long, long time ago and finally used...

The dainty prancing hooves...

The rainbow array of modern prints used for the mane and tail...

Sunny. Bright. And Happy.

The backing is Wistful Winds by Riley Blake Designs, bordered top and bottom with Fancy by Lily Ashbury for Moda, which was also used for the binding. I am so happy with the way this worked out and the sunny frame the yellow/orange binding provides against the blue background on the front.

The "Rainbow Unicorn" quilt finished at 40" x 51"
and was the 62nd use of my 2nd edition of 100 labels
ordered from Ikaprint.

You continually amaze me with your darling designs. I like the blue background and floral backing on this rainbow unicorn. It is like the unicorn is dancing through the flowers.
