Quilt no 33

Quilt no 33: All My Hearts Are Rainbows
10.5" square
I got a scrap bag full of hand dyed fabrics from Ricky Tims & couldn't resist the rainbow colors.
First I made the rainbow strata, then sliced it & turned those narrow pieces in the opposite direction.  When I realized that the green would make a solid stripe across, I decided to stagger the seams a bit.  A big PLUS in doing that - no seams to match up!  I drew the concentric hearts for the quilting onto printer paper & pinned it to the quilt, then stitched right through it.  I've enjoyed looking at it sitting here in my house - almost decided to keep it for myself!
