Sunburst Rainbow Update

Here is the new fabric I have chosen for the backing of the Sunburst Rainbow quilt.

I set my hand down so you could see the scale of the print, but the light from the Ott light sure does make my hand look creepy!

Here's the fabric I have chosen for the binding:
(binding fabric on the left, quilt on the right.)  Although I like large prints for the backings of my quilts, I did not consider this for the backing because I felt there was too much going on. The quilt itself is full of vibrant intense color, and I thought if I used that fabric on the back it would just be too much.

This quilt is going to my eighty-year old Mom, who told me when she saw the flimsy: "NOBODY can appreciate that quilt more than me."

I'll be sending it off to Chris on Monday. If I'm lucky, the Sliced quilt will go along with it, and then I can focus on sewing the binding on the Rainbow Baby quilt and the Spools quilt.  I'll work on those when I "watch" television.  But next up.. The Chicken!

Love both the backing and binding fabrics. If I still was more of a sewer I would make myself something to wear from those!

Isn't it terrific to have moms who love your stuff?
