Random: not really rainbow part iii






I shall finish {not really rainbow} post today! It took a few days to decided on the quilting pattern. Original idea was quilt 1/4" away from the seamallowace, but I was looking for an overall quilting look.  The simple grid lines is perfect for it.  I still wished to add purple in the rainbow scale.  It feels like something is missing from the scale. Although the brown substituted fine with other colors. 

The binding is from {Fancy Free} by DS collection for Joann's. It looks like wire wrapped around the quilt. For the backing, I used hexies piecing and made a mini rainbow. The backing fabric is from Lori Holt aka {Bee In My Bonnet}'s {Polk dot words in gray}.  Very nice print indeed!  The pin board is full... and I am itchy for another mini quilt...

The pattern piecing pattern can be find { here}
