One Rainbow Quilt Top Done
The good thing about having several projects underway at all times is that when your energy/space/time is limited there's always something you can work on. The Rainbow quilt has been good for me this week because I could work on it in bits of time when I had the energy. Eventually I got it done!
It's king sized and for the moment I have it draped over the guest bed. I seriously love this quilt.
Finding that this quilt back will fit was a stroke of good luck.. This is folded in quarters and the lime area is the center. The motif of squares works great with the front. I dyed this for another project and it didn't work out. I'm glad it's going to work out for this one.
When I started making the Rainbow quilt I picked a lot of fabric and cut it all out. I got so carried away that I have enough blocks for a lap quilt! I laid this out on the floor last night so I wouldn't have to plan it at the next sewing with my quilt club.
I have all of the rows clipped and read to sew next month.
There are even more blocks left over! I'll plan a baby quilt or something with these and the scraps from all the cutting after I finish the lap quilt.

Gorgeous quilt, and the back is perfect! It's the perfect quilt for a dyer such as yourself. I'm assuming this stays with you, correct? A truly fun quilt. Congratulations.

Very colorful and fun! It has been so gray here that your quilt really brightens things up! Can't wait to see the quilting.

What a pretty quilt! Draped over the guest bed that way, the triangle border looks like pennants. Very cheerful!

What's not to love about that fun colorful quilt, just what one needs to look at on these winter days! And what a great back.

I love your rainbow quilt! The colors are gorgeous and the simple piecing really shows them off. Perfect backing fabric too!

Great choice for the backing! That will make the back look so good that the quilt will be reversible.

That is a seriously cool back! The quilt turned out fabulous!

Such a fun fun quilt. I want it on my bed! Unfortunately, too much on my plate and too little in the fabric fund right now. But I can tell you I would love to get into your scrap pile when you are done with it. Your fabrics are just glorious. One of these days . . .
