I went with the order of the rainbow in the panel rather than "traditional" rainbow order. For the corners, I had already picked this adorable fabric (also from the quilt box).
Which came in extra handy when it turned out I had tried to pair a 42" rainbow with a 45" panel. Here's a photo of piecing together the final product:
