RSC 14: week 50

One quarter of my rainbow top is nearly there!

I'm going to quilt this in four sections and then join them QAYG style. I've never done that so it's fingers crossed!

Before I start quilting though I'm going to have to add border(s) because I need a little extra width and length. I think 4" all round should be enough. I can't decide whether to do one plain off-white border 4"wide, or a 1" off-white border and a rainbow piano keys border on the outside. Give myself a lot of extra work! So friends, any suggestions?

All the other blocks already have their right hand side sashing attached and are waiting for space on my design curtain.

I'm linking up to 


so head over there and see some more scrappy goodness.

Happy sewing

I love piano key borders, but there is enough going on already with this quilt that I don't think it "needs" it. A nice simple wide border would tie it all together beautiful! Great work on getting the blocks together.

So pretty...and I agree with Angela.

I didn't make an RSC Sampler but it has been fun watching everyone else and all their different settings. Each quilt has the same blocks but is so unique! Good luck on the QAYG!

I concur! Go easy on yourself. Let us know how the quilt as you go works out. I've been meaning to try it.

It is gorgeous! I cannot wait to have some time to work with mine. These are such gorgeous quilts!

Lovely work. Won't it be great when it's all together? What about a compromise? A wide border with little insert of rainbow colours between rows. Not a piano key but with a little interest.

Oh the piano key for sure. The sampler is looking good.
