    An Amish Rainbow to celebrate Summer

    My early quilting projects were often inspired by the Amish. I haven't visited that in so long, I thought it was time. These brights certainly hit the spot! In drafting this, I was bound and determined to have the border fit perfectly and I wanted to make sure that each corner was different. It's a good thing I like playing with numbers.

    Happy summer to all. Here in Maine we are starting out with a couple days in the 90's - and the high was only 63 yesterday!

    Ohh, I like it! The black background & border really make those colors POP. Very cheery quilt.

    Gorgeous. The book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!! has a quilt that looks a lot like yours with the border transitioning from one color to the next only they used all different size strips to do it. You did a wonderful job on it.
