WIP: The rainbow medallion is growing!

I've had quite the busy week!  Last Sunday I decided it was time to add to the rainbow medallion, which calls for 21 borders in the pattern.  I'm not sure how long that will take, but this is meant to be a fun project that uses a lot of scraps from other projects along the way.  I've decided to group the borders into 2-3 of each R(pink)OYGBIV to make a radiating outward rainbow quilt of fabulosity!  Plus I have a thing for cool colors and those will need the most scraps because they're on the outside.  Here it is, currently 13"x13" and just waiting to grow.

I also had a fun weekend at the Austin Shop Hop.  Finding new places to shop for fabric is always at the top of the list!  Here's the loot I scored.  Lots of Anna Maria Horner and even some scraps of the original Flea Market Fancy and Melody Miller typewriters.  And of course, eyeglasses for the eye doctor.  Please, sir, may I have some more?

Wow your rainbow block is insane. I can not believe it is just 13 inches square. That is an amazing amount of beautiful work.
