Hanging the Rainbow


Finally we have a quilt hanging in our home.  The Rainbow Log Cabin turned out so beautifully that I was compelled to keep it.  I already have a lap quilt I use almost daily, displaying the Rainbow seemed obvious.

The quilting is concentric arches.  I used a dinner plate as a guide, the only draw back was the plate was not quite the right  diametre to match up with the width of the strips.  A very clever attempt at continuity, if I might be so bold.
