Rainbow Squares and some more Rainbow Squares!

Are you sick of seeing this quilt top in action yet?! Here is Daz trying to hold it up outside, he's on a step ladder, he's not that tall!

I then got rid of all the background. Looking good! In hindsight (and isn't that a wonderful thing?) I should have added white around the borders twice the width of what I did and just left it at that. But I didn't!

So what to add in the border to take it down to the 8 or so inches needed for it to sit neatly down each side of our bed? How about some more squares? Lots more squares! Better stop blogging and get sewing!

The little squares are going to be very cute! Did you use photoshop to make the pictures or another program - it is fun to see how you designed this.
