As planned, I took the weekend to finish up Rainbow in the Dark
I couldn’t be happier with it. It’s just how I imagined when I first started sketching out my idea on graph paper. That plain black makes those colourful scraps pop!
It’s 72″ wide x 84″ long. A nice size to toss on top of a bed, or snuggle up under with a friend.
We still had LOTS of rainbow thread left so I used it for the quilting. It’s hard to see on the colours, but it looks great on the black.
Incredibly, I wasn’t able to get any more plain black cotton for the binding, as planned – my LYS was completely out! But Mom came through with this subtle grey on black print, and to be honest, I love it even more than plain black.
The back is nothing fancy, just a simple grey check with blue and red pinstripes. There’s so much going on on the front, I love the calmness of the plainer back.
And now this big beauty is in the mail and on it’s way to my friend. I hope it brings a little cheer when it shows up at his door.
