Holy moly, every time you say "kick it" on WiP Wednesday, the radio in my head starts to play Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right". Seriously. :) Anyway, I absolutely adore your scrappy do.Good quilt top, it looks so wonderful! As for a backing, did you see SewCraftyJess's scrappy rainbow quilt recently? She did rainbow strips of color, probably about 5" wide, horizontally across the back and that looked pretty cool...Happy WiP Wednesday! :)
