Refracted Rainbow Mini Top Done

Okay, I am having so much fun with this little mini!!  After finishing up the little rainbows I started framing them in white.  I love how the white serves to make the colors all the more crisp.


Then I played with the layout and sashed each of the framed rainbow blocks with some black.  The remind me of old slide projector slides.  So cool!!


I used the two remaining blocks to make a label for the back. I need to finish the back now so I can get to quilting it.


And speaking of quilting . . . This is my current quilting plan.  What do you think???  I would love your creative opinions!!

  4. I love your quilt top. And love the little pop of white you added between the blocks and sashing.

    Quilting I would just follow the rays of each block with straight line quilting.

    Can't wait to see what you decide.

  14. Love the quilt. I think the quilting would have more impact if you only chose a couple to emphasize and the rest were straight line quilted. It will be beautiful whatever you choose.

  32. you really did a great job! sometimes a color scheme makes all the difference, and trying again! I really do see prisms now.
    extending the prisms' rays of light into the sashes and borders as quilting just enhances the "light" bouncing around.
    hugs to celebrate!
