I am very happy with this quilt! I finished it on Saturday and gave it to the pastor on Sunday. In the card I let her know that I am still working on the label and will sew it on for her when it is ready. I've decided to name the quilt "You're the Rainbow To My Cloud", from a quote by Maya Angelou.
The back of the quilt was a mix of fabric blocks using fabrics from the quilt front, plus a tie-dye fabric that brought all the colors together. I thought the swirl in the pattern complimented the "motion" of the pinwheels on the front.
Color range red, orange, yellow, green
Color range blues, purple
The binding was the same fabric as the darker fabric on the pinwheels.
I quilted free-style horizontal waves with the walking foot. With the exception of a small glitch, I loved the way it turned out.
Thanks to my patient quilt-holding husband, who begged me not to include his legs.
