All The Colors Of The Rainbow ... And Some More

Originally, I wanted to make scrap buckets/baskets, so I can sort my scraps by color. I found those paper piecing lettering on the web (can't rightly recall where. Sorry.), and started with some colors. Soon I realized that with those color names the baskets would get huge, or at least way bigger than I would like them to be (or have space for in my sewing room).
So, an alternative solution was needed.
I added some scraps in the proper color to each of the words (well, if I use them here, I won't need the buckets anyway). Each color is seperated by a 3/4 inch wide white stripe.
I quilted around the letters and did a free motion pattern on the colored sections using the matching color threat.
 For the back I used some gray/white striped fabric and the one word I've had left over and didn't want to use on the front.
Somehow, the gray look a bit sad here, all alone.
This one is going to be hanged on my sewing room wall, so at least it gets into the room it was originally intented for.
