    Rainbow scrappy

    I started making scrappy blocks this spring (posted here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t244263.html) and made some more this summer, until I finally got tired of making them! I put them together and this is the result. The black triangles and borders are black with different gold metallic designs from my stash. I did buy the binding--black with colored polka dots. I know the whole quilt is a little goofy but I like seeing fabrics from my different projects.

    The bird fabric backing is something I picked up at a thrift store but it wasn't big enough, so I continued with bright, bold colors to get a big enough backing. The piece at the top is a hanging sleeve, although I don't know if I'll ever hang it.

    I'm thinking of calling it 'Rainbow Medley.'

    I love your quilt and it is far from goofy! I really like your color placement. The backing is perfect and so, so colorful as well. Great job all the way 'round.

    That's really nice! The colors are so nicely placed, and putting the blocks on point gives it an extra oomph!
    And I like the way you used the stripes!

    This is a very nice rainbow quilt. A good study in color.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
