Modern Dear Jane in Progress

Today I'm finishing up chores around the house and spending the day working on Rusty's Dear is so very modern and bright!

I am using one layer of batt provided by Rusty - I believe it's Hobbs 80/20 - Glide thread for quilting.  I thought about using monopoly in all of the color patches but I'm not a fan of the shine it creates.

After working on these blocks (I believe there are more than a 100 of them) - I think I'll be able to get away with solid black only.  I am loving this quilt...I have never wanted to make a Dear Jane so badly as I do now after seeing it in this rainbow colorway!

*cough cough*  Just a reminder that I may have something to help you make your own rainbow quilt...
