Two-Thirds of a Rainbow

 I've sewn six of the nine vertical rows together so far, and I am really happy with this. I selected a very unusual fabric for the backing.

What I like about it is that it's neutral. There's so much going on on the front, and while I could have used ANY of the colors on the front as a backing, the quilt would have been "too much," and I didn't want that. The other thing I like about it is that it moves the way the design on the front does. Back and forth.

What will I do for the binding? Jeez, I dunno. I might even change my mind about the backing when it comes time, but I'm not worried. There are a lot of options (and a lot of right answers) for a quilt like this. 

This fabric hit me, and I generally go with what hits me. I have learned to trust my gut instincts.
