the Dark Rainbow Star is a finished Top now

 Excuse the pictures. I had to hang the top over the balcony railing and the light is shining through it from behind. 
I left out all very dark colors, because I don't wanted to lose the star tips against the dark background. 
Now I am waiting for the batting to arrive so that I can start quilting.
 The Pickle Dish is no longer a WIP! It's finished and already soo soft and cuddly because of the beautiful, soft Kaffe Fassett fabrics.
The striped binding came from my stash and I thought it was perfect for this quilt.
Pictures of the whole quilt and the pieced backing will follow as soon as weather and time allow for a little outdoor shooting. Hopefully on the weekend!

Love your rainbow quilt and the pickle dish looks gorgeous too! Following your blog now - did you hand quilt it? X

Both of these projects look amazing! You were quick to finish the Dark Rainbow Star top - did you have to source and cut each square from your stash?
Your Pickle Dish is so beautiful, wonderful work.

Very nice star quilt! I love the dark gray background and you did a great job distributing all those rainbow colors.

I love the star against the dark background - it really makes the colours shine. It will be lovely quilted.
