Rainbow Could-a-Been Scrappy Quilt



I really love rainbow quilts!  When I saw this one on pinterest, it was love at first sight!  Immediately I began pulling scraps to make this one.  But when it came down to it, only 3 of the 12 fabrics ended up being from my scrap bin.  Oh well, a scrappy quilt is on the todo list.  


I did, however, use the remaining fabric of all colors on the back of this quilt.  I've never pieced a back like this before and it took rearranging and rearranging to get it just right.  Well, right enough for what I had to work with.  It was either this or buy some gray to match the front.  I don't think that would have been as fun as this colorful back.



Thanks for stopping by!  Linking up with:

  1. I love the colorful back, it definitely adds to the quilt. And the front is gorgeous as well. I totally feel your pain about using scraps. I have to wait until I have a banker's box full of scraps before I can consider trying to make a quilt just from the scraps.

  6. So pretty! I love both sides, and you're right about the colourful back being more fun than a plain grey would have been.

  12. My boys love this rainbow quilt. (They like to read over my shoulder.) Your backing is awesome. I love scrappy backs, but they do take more planning.
