The 2014 RSC Sampler is now Flame Test, named for a classic elemental analysis test that can produce a rainbow of colors depending up the chemical elements exposed to the flame. The name was Drama Teen's suggestion. I finished sewing on the binding a couple of weeks ago but didn't get photos until this week.
The fabric for the binding came from the scrap pile. This rainbow stripe fabric was used as the backing on a quilt for Drama Teen a few years ago. It was absolutely perfect against the black border.

I'm really happy with how this project came together. The black border and sashing really makes those brights just glow. Trudy Lindemann did a beautiful job with the quilting. She matched the thread color to the color of the blocks. You may have to blow up the picture to see the color differences between the blue, purple and black.
Drama Teen requested something swirly for the quilting and Trudy nailed it. Speaking of Drama Teen. I'd no more than gotten the pictures of the binding when she grabbed the quilt and put it to use in her favorite spot so far this summer.
It's warmed up a lot this week, but last weekend it was still cool enough in the morning to be covered up a bit. It's nice to know that Flame Test is likely to be just about as well loved as the rainbow quilt that's on her bed.
Thank you Angela for such a fun challenge project. I've been following along with Angela's monthly color choices since 2012. Flame Test is the first RSC quilt that I've finished. There are still three sets of rainbow challenge blocks that need to be set together (not counting this year's Twinkle Star project). One of these days I need to get busy with those. For now, I'm going to go check out all the other rainbow pretties posted over at Soscrappy.
