Flimsy Alert! ~ "Fancy Me a Rainbow"

Hi there! I got my rainbow top put together a few days ago! To say I love it is an understatement, and it takes all my discipline to bag everything I'm supposed to get finished right now (including a commission) so I can just quilt this up Right Now.  :)



It's something like 60 x 65 inches. I t's an original design that I developed by playing around with colored pencils and graph paper to maximize a fat eight bundle of "Fancy" that my daughter gave me for Christmas. I coupled it with a low-volume text fabric from a Wizard of Oz collection and a fat quarter of gray that was in my stash.

 I'll be working up a pattern when I can get some more settlement to my days in a couple of weeks (a lot going on in the background of Life at the moment).

I really love this a lot!! The way you've used the colours is brilliant and the layout is so eye-catching. I can see why it's hard not to drop everything and get onto quilting it.
