Closer to the end of the rainbow! [TGIFF]

You may notice that those are MY bare toes under this quilt top... Yup freezing too I might add. Usually the Mr. does the job of quilt top display but Miss O was sleeping in his arms and having been particularly fussy all day we were not about to disturb her. So this resulted in my running outside, barefoot, while he took photos one handed. What a team.
It was mad windy. And, of course the top is upside down here. I never knew the responsibility that came with being the quilt top displayer! So I turned it over...
Although now I think it looks smart either way! I'm really happy with this and can't wait for the backing to arrive to finish finish it.
Any quilting suggestions?

Yummy! What's going on the back? I love how it's turning out.. I don't know if it would work for you, but I'm loving the straight lines right now. :) xo

I'm working on a rainbow scrap quilt now and am so loving the rainbow look. Yours is fab! I'm kinda stuck in a meander quilting mode, so can't help you there. But you may inspire me with how you decide to quilt yours!

This is looking fab! Do you think the wind knows when anyone is trying to photograph a quilt?

Love your quilt with all the cool negative space!!! Check out Angela Walters at http://www.quiltingismytherapy.com/ She is awesome at filling in the negative spaces in the more modern quilt designs.

I love this top. I doubt if I could overcome the temptation to quilt feathers in some form almost everywhere.
