The Technicolor Yawn Bedroom

Sean wasn’t keen on calling it When Rainbows Vomit… so Technicolor Yawn was his replacement suggestion. Means the same thing but much more… ahem… tasteful? Maybe we should have gone with The Robert Kaufman Kona Color Card: Quilt Version. That’s basically what it is.


The unquilted, but full picture version is here.

Sean tried to nix the throw pillows. I won.


While it might be a bit bright for some, I love it. And it’s more than perfect for our usually dark bedroom (the back of the house is much, much, much brighter).


Angela Walters quilted Megapixel. It’s curves are simply dreamy.



Since I freeze every night during winter (winter being defined as September through June) I had to make an extra little something for my side of the bed. While it isn’t a pattern in Scrap Republic, it’s built on many of the same principles.


I’m working on some more rainbow loveliness now. Pictures … soon.

Disclaimer: I hate the wall color in our room. Please ignore it’s hideousness.

  1. It’s beautiful! Now I’m feeling all inspired to make a quilt for my bed…and paint over the color I hate on my bedroom walls. 🙂

  2. Very, very cool! Funny, in our neck of the woods quilts are for summer, duvets are for winter.

  3. wow! This is fantastic. And the quilting by Angela, super.

    LOVE both the bed quilt and the extra throw quilt. I too am always cold, sometimes even in the summer. You really know how to use color and bold prints.

    Love this!! I don’t suppose you would consider making a pattern for those of us who can’t do anything without one, would you? As always, your work is inspiring.

    These are both just beautiful. The quilting on Technicolor Yawn is just perfect too.

  12. Maria says:

    I love it!!!!! It makes me want to trash my almost clean sewing room and go at it!

  13. Cheryl says:

    I found your quilt via Pinterest and I love it
    Well done YOU!

    WOW, does not begin to describe how I feel about this beautiful quilt you have done. I have a passion for octagons and now have a new way to use up some scraps and a couple of fabric rolls. I have never been one for bright rainbow colors but your quilt just may have giving me a new way to look at colors when picking out fabrics. I usually gravitate to greens,blues and purples more in the jewel tones. I will definitely be following your blog now for some inspiration.
