Rainbow Batiks - A Finish!

My rainbow batik top is finished! Now I just have to figure out what to call it.  Rainbow Trails perhaps?

I had originally planned on using a wide back but when I found this batik it was meant to be - despite needing a seam.  It reminds me of fall leaves!

This was my first time using a scrappy binding.  Picking a binding thread to go with all the different fabrics was hard, but I think it came out pretty well.  I may have to see about stitching up my old binding odds and ends that are laying around!

Linking up with Finish it up and Fabric Frenzy Fridays.


  1. A very pretty finish! I like your scrappy binding.


  2. I like your scrappy binding too. I was just today looking at a panel I need to quilt and decided that I'd make the binding out of whatever scraps I have, I like the idea of being creative with what I have. You've made a beautiful quilt, I love Batiks.

  3. This is gorgeous! Your rainbow binding was the perfect touch.

  4. This turned out wonderfully! The scrappy binding is perfect for this quilt.

  5. What a lovely finish! I really like your scrappy binding a lot; it ties everything together very nicely.
