Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 14 (The End!)

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!

Today is Nudge 14, our final Rainbow Cascade nudge!

Remember, Rainbow Cascade is made from a single block repeated in a rainbow of colors. Once you’ve completed your blocks, follow the chart in the pattern to piece your  Rainbow Cascade quilt top.

Haven’t started yet? It’s never too late! Thanks to my Patreon Patrons, this quilt along post will remain free for your quilting pleasure.

And here it is, my own completed quilt top!

Rainbow Cascade quilt top

A lot has happened since I first created the pattern for Rainbow Cascade. I want to thank each and every person who has joined me on what turned into an amazing journey!

I’d also like to share an extra thanks to my friends who allowed me to photograph in their beautiful home. The weather (and pollen!) haven’t been great for outdoor photography.

Did you make this quilt, too? Share in our Facebook Group or tag it & me on Instagram – #rainbowcascadeqal @sewhookedjen!

I added a white 3″ (3 1/2″ with seam allowance) outside border to my 70″ x 80″ Rainbow Cascade. My final quilt top is 76″ x 86″ (+ 1/2″ for binding). If a simple border like this is something you would like to do, I HIGHLY recommend cutting your border to the appropriate size first and pinning well before stitching. Rainbow Cascade’s many pieces are fraught with bias edges. Accurate borders will help keep your quilt top edges from distorting.

Need a little help with fabric amounts for your borders? I use the Robert Kaufman Quilting Calculator App on my smartphone. This is not a paid endorsement, I just love the app! It’s highly useful to calculate amounts for borders, backs, binding, and more.

Another finish for 2018

How about this gorgeous Rainbow Cascade finish from Susan?!

(Reblogged Post from http://soozspeak.blog/2018/03/25/another-finish-for-2018/)

soozspeak

Finished my Rainbow Cascade quilt which was designed by Jennifer Ofenstein at Sewhooked.com.  I love this quilt!!!  It is being donated to Theatre Alliance of Winston-Salem for them to raffle off.

Right now I’m working on a “emergency” quilt. I started it yesterday and got the blocks finished today.  Tomorrow I’ll join the blocks and get it ready for quilting.  I will be quilting this one myself and hope to have it completed and in the mail to it’s recipient by Friday.  Fingers are crossed!  When I get it done, I’ll take a picture and post it after the recipient gets it.

I’m in the finishing stages for my own Rainbow Cascade and can’t wait to show you my finished quilt top on April 9! Optional for you, and not included in the original instructions: I will be adding a white outside border to the 70″ x 80″ version I am making to make the blocks “float.”

More #secondarypattern from #rainbowcascadeqal! Even though I still have more blocks to make, I couldn't resist piecing together a couple of columns! #sewhookedpattern free on sewhooked.com. #paperpieced
