WIP Wednesday

School starts in a mere 20 days (and I go back even sooner!).  Needing a project to keep my hands busy while sitting around watching tv, I decided to keep my tradition alive.  Which tradition?  The one where I make a new pillow cover for my library chair each year.

Since I have so many beautiful rainbow scraps, thanks to the Bottled Rainbows quilt, I thought that nothing could be more perfect than a mini-rainbow!

This pic was taken a few days ago, and progress is moving along nicely!  I'm thinking of backing it in Amy Butler's red lotus flowers, but here's where I need your help!  What color should I bind it in???  I really have no idea.
I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday, over on Lee's blog.  Check it out!

  1. Hi Jenny, I absolutely LOVE these rainbow hexes! Really, I think you could bind it with any of the colors...your favorite?

  5. That is going to be a fabulous pillow! For the binding I would probably go with yellow or green, but that is almost always my choice. Use your favorite, I don't really think there is a wrong choice here. You could also go with black/white, too. Not much help, eh?

  6. Ack! So pretty!! I have a thing for all things color wheelish! How about these on white with hand-stitching and another row of hexagons near the opening? Either way I am looking forward to you finishing it beautifully!

  7. I love this! SO cute. I agree with Shanna that a rainbow stripe would be really cool. I used the rainbow stripe from Ann Kelle's Remix line for my Bottled Rainbows quilt, and it's really fun. Or you could go with black, and that would frame everything nicely.

  8. I really love this! Those hexies are super cute. I think you should bind it kona coal -- although a rainbow stripe would also look great.

  9. I really love this too! Those colours look beautiful together. I would also go for a black border - I think it always makes the colours really pop out even more.

  11. Thank you all SO much for your kind comments! I have some Kona charcoal, medium gray, and some dark purple (I forget which one), and am toying with the idea of each. I guess I will have to audition them when the pillow cover is almost done!

  14. Love those pretty rainbow-y hexies! I think they'd be happy bound in grey. Or for more of a punch some black - solid.
