Finished! Bottled Rainbows Quilt

Bottled Rainbows Finished
This is the largest quilt I have ever attempted. So happy it's finished! It fits our queen size bed, and I also got some photos of it turned sideways on a full-size bed. Here are a few more shots.

I used Sugar Pop for the binding (machine stitched to the back, hand-sewn to the front), and settled on some upcycled sheets for the large back. They match my buttercup block.

Botted Rainbows Binding: Sugar Pop

I realized that this quilt suddenly went up in value when I went to the emergency room over the binding, and I really love it still!
