Although I made this quilt with every intention of selling it (hopefully), I will be sad to see it leave. I LOVE it. I love rainbows. I was a bit obsessive as a child about my crayons always being in color order. It got to the point where my grandmother would keep a separate box of crayons at her house just for me because I would get so upset if my cousins used the crayons and didn't put them back in color order. I would not even use a new box of crayons until I had taken all of them out and reordered them--even if it was the really big box of 120 crayons! Sadly, I still do this today with my children's crayons, markers, and colored pencils. I only do it when they have new box and I don't expect them to put them back in that order, I just love seeing ROYGBIV!
I pressed all my seams open on this quilt. I know some quilters think this is a sin, but it makes the quilt lay so much nicer with none of those pesky ridges that can sometimes occur with pressing to the side. Hopefully I will have the back pieced tonight! Oh, and thanks to Tracey I now I have a black and white binding for this quilt! Hooray for swapping because I'm on a fabric diet.......maybe.
UPDATE: I completed the back of this quilt today too! I'm on a roll!
