    pinwheel rail fence, rainbow version

    Oh dear. I can't remember the original name of this quilt. It was in tans/neutrals, and I think it had some kind of foodie name like Dulche du Leche or Cookies-n-Cream. Someone will remind me, I'm sure.

    Anyway, here is my interpretation, made with a batik jelly roll:

    Yes, Vibrant is the word. The crisp black and white border really sets it off.

    Was the name Creme Brule? I can't remember either but it is a great quilt in the brights and the black and white pinwheels really pop.

    I love the way you mixed all the bright colors with the black and white. Your border fabric is perfect.

    Here is another post from this board with the same pattern. Yours reminds me of Mike and Ike candy.

    Very cool! I like your choice of border fabric. Not only does it set off the bright colors, but it adds a nice contrast to the straight lines of the blocks.
