Close up of the rainbow

Deputy's Wife has been wondering how I pieced the rainbow quilt.

If you look closely, you might be able to see a seam line in the middle of each color. All the pieces are the same size as the black diamonds. Correct arrangement gives them stretched rectangle look.

The piecing method is pretty similar to how I did this binding. Or at least the cutting on a 45* angle.

And here's the Simply Quilts episode that sparked this quilt. :)

Excellent piecing when even from this close, you can't see the seam in the colored pieces. Well done. I love it.

I love your tubular quilt. I'm curious how you selected the colors as they blend so well together. Did you use a special technique/resource or just followed your instinct?

Thanks for posting the link Leah! I missed your binding post, but got to see it now. Loved it!!!

Thanks again. I think this might need to be put on my "to do" list!
