Maybe Colour Play

I finished quilting this today. Each row is quilted with figure-8 loops, in colours to match the fabrics. Some strips are all one thread colour; others change 2 or 4 times. I've almost finished hand-stitching the back of the plain black binding, too.

I think I might call it Colour Play, but I'm not sure yet. It's the simplest quilt I've ever made, but I just love the fabrics. I need to come up with more ways of using them without losing the effect of the gradients.

Those are gorgeous fabrics! I've seen the gradient fabrics in the shops before, but I've always wondered how I would be able to use them to their fullest advantage. This is definitely a good approach to it.
