Winter Rainbows

To see a rainbow, one has to have rain and sunshine. In the winter, water droplets freeze into ice particles that do not produce a rainbow, but instead scatter light in other interesting patterns. This morning it was 10 degrees below zero, the sun was shining and the sky was a brilliant blue. There was no rainbow outside today, so I decided to create one from my stash! The fabric is Robert Kaufman's Mixmasters, an abstract fabric that features variations of the same color fused together, like light refracting through frozen water.
