Weekend Stacks: Rainbow

rainbow fabric stack

Just popping in for a minute to share a fabric stack. These are the fabrics that I have used recently to create my rainbow mini quilts. I started with the multi-coloured fabric with swirls of flowers and birds. I remember finding it in the fabric store and then spreading all the other fabrics around it to get a mix of colours that worked perfectly. All of the others are predominately a single colour with either a touch of white or one other colour. The background of the main fabric is white so I ruled out any fabrics that had cream or black instead of white. This helped tie the collection together. I also found that stepping back from the layout every now and then helped to decide which fabrics may have been overpowering the others.
