Rainbow Top

Rainbow quilt top is finally done. I keep thinking I will get a better outdoor photos but we have a snow mud mix outside (snow today). The quilt is large and takes up all of my design wall. 

Here I was looking at what I could use for a sashing and a boarder. I interviewed nine patches in all the rainbow colours. Kind of OK for sashing but maybe too thick and large. The triangles for a boarder was OK too but the angles just did not do it for me when the blocks were so square. I was liking the fine strip of printed Rainbow fabric. 

I did one rainbow strip set and hung up, Yes piano key boarder was more what I was looking for. 

The blocks are together in this photo and I am double checking the strip sets for the piano keys. 

I looked back and some of the blocks were made back in 2013. 

Pink and lime green.

Green blocks, also found in the 2013 photos. 

I will add this post to Socrappy and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and Confessions of a Fabric Addict


  1. What a beautiful, inspiring, quilt! I love the varying centers surrounded by the unifying borders. The sashing and piano keys are perfect, too.

  2. Some quilts are all about the process. This one was well worth the wait. It is AWESOME!!! Looking forward to seeing it completed.

  3. Love everything about your quilt: the blocks, the narrow rainbow sashing and the piano keys borders. Really great! Well worth working on over the past five years.
