I’ve made this quick quilt as a wonderful rainbow quilt for a teen or tween. It was really fun at use all eyelet for the whites…

The Streak of Lightning pattern is actually an old traditional pattern, usually completed in two colors, like this red and white version.  I had seen a vintage one when I was working on the last museum show and it inspired me to make some kid versions.

Making the Zombie Streak of Lightning was my favorite because I got to use all of my skulls, skeletons, mustaches, music notes, zombies, flames and so much more to make a great graduation gift for a friend!
