TGIFF!!!! I'm on Top of the Rainbow!

Well, I FINALLY finished the top of my bottled rainbows quilt! Now, saying this actually means that all I have to do is make and attach the backing because it was a quilt as you go so the batting is already attached. One less step to do!
I did piano keys all around for a border out of the leftover fabrics plus some other Kona I had. I will more pictures later as I get it all finished up. I'm also going to take some individual pictures of blocks for flickr. I did it once already but the lighting where I took them was horrible. Oh, and I forgot to mention that with my extra row of blocks, this baby comes out around 90 x 90. Whew! Not gonna be fun getting this jewel on my little home machine!

Hubby also hung my quilt rack he made for me. It now decorates my sewing room with the 4 quilts I've made that still reside at my house.
* UPDATE: After being asked by several people about the pattern for the quilt rack, I figured I should include the links in the post.
Here is a link to purchase the pattern my husband used to make it.

In looking online, I also came across the same idea for one that is used to hold horse blankets. This one is metal and is purchased as a kit. Here is where you can find it.

It looks kind of neat with the arms all splayed out as well.
Linking up!!!
