    Brian's Rainbow

    A friend of mine asked me to make a quilt to commemorate his friends' civil union this summer. This is the work in progress

    You have done a great job with the colors. The way they mix together is great. Of course, I was expecting more traditional primary colors from the heading and thought Brian was a new baby - LOL. Looks like there is room for two to cuddle under it. I'm sure it will be loved.

    That is a great quilt. I am making a rainbow quilt for a young friend for Christmas. I will certainly keep this in mind! It's along the lines of Blooming 9 patch, but I like that it's all 9 patch blocks!

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    What a lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    I really like what you are doing with this quilt, quite unique. I to was expecting a more traditional rainbow of colors, but think what you are doing is wonderful. This quilt will be loved.

    This is going to be gorgeous. Keep going (smile). What a lovely quilt. Thank you for sharing.
