Finished it up Friday...Hurray for Rainbows, Baby!

I made this quilt top back in 2014. My post about it here.
 It has been sitting in a cute little basket waiting with its backing fabric since then, through my move and all.
I decided it was time! Do I picked out these fun threads and went to town!

 I have only tried the all over squiggly lines on a small table runner and decided to try it again. It wasn't too daunting since I only did a section of color at a time.
 How fun is this little guy!?
The back is a flannel fabric leftover from some t-shirt quilts I made several years ago.
 I had a bit of trouble with the quilting. When I went a certain direction too quickly it would break my thread. I am not picky about threads and I am using a free motion foot on my treadle...not too surprised that I had some kind of problem.


 I chose a black and white fabric to frame it out as a binding. Not sure where this one will end up yet!
Final measurements are 32 x 42in.
Linking up with crazymomquilts!
