Rainbow Popsicles

I started this quilt top with no idea what I wanted to do. I simply sewed together a rainbow of fabric that I hand painted with watered down acrylic paint in zip lock bags. I then cut it apart and sewed it back together over and over again. I added a more organized border to give it a little structure. I haven't had a chance to quilt it--that will be a new experiment.
My neighbor said the colors reminded her of popsicles--maybe because a little heat has finally come to our corner of the USA. My kids made me promise I wouldn't give this quilt away. The bright colors do remind me of summer fun.

I'm curious about the acrylic paint. Doesn't it stiffen the fabric? I don't generally paint material...but the idea sounds intriguing.
