I was scavenging through my scraps and of course, there were plenty of options to choose from. I couldn't help taking the rainbow route once again. It's effective! Plus, were coming to the end of winter and color has been in short demand!
|14 1/2" x 50 1/2"|
I machine quilted 1/4" lines around the center panel and added a criss-cross design in between the blocks.
The rest of the quilting I kept simple. I guess you could call it the 'plaid effect'!
I choose not to quilt in the blocks. I wanted to! If I had, I would have wanted to use a coordinating thread color. That is a lot of work!
The backing is a print that has been lurking in my stash. In an effort to use and clear out some 'oldies', I used it for the back. A spring surprise!
Anytime I make anything rainbow, my first thought is to quilt each color with matching thread. You know and I know it's time consuming. If I don't do that, I ignore the colors completely and quilt around them. My brain doesn't seem to ever go anywhere else!
My question is: What do you do when you have a quilt with so many colors? How do you decide what color thread to use? With the white background I guess I would choose white thread, would I? Would you?
Such a conundrum!
