Rainbow Quilt

This quilt is called Native Rainbow and it's from the book entitled, Batik Beauties by Laurie J. Shifrin. I just call mine Rainbow (although I threw in some brown). It is an easy quilt to make with just squares and rectangles. I made this one using all scraps for the blocks. I had a nice stripe fabric for the border that worked well with this.

I think my friend Susan will like this quilt because she attracted to quilts with boxy blocks, right Susan? You can make either a square quilt like this one or a rectangle quilt. I also made a rectangle quilt in this pattern using fall colors for a lap quilt for Mr. P. I will be posting that one soon. Has a different look in the fall colors.



I used a soft flannel on the back of the quilt.

I had a long arm quilter quilt this quilt using an umbrella quilt design with raindrops. Unfortunately, you really cannot see the pretty quilt design very well on most of the quilt. I love this umbrella quilt design and may need to make another quilt to let the design of the quilting show through more.

  1. Rainbows are fun, and scrappy patchworked rainbows make for a lovely happy quilt! I love how you echoed the on point block placement, in the borders - nice touch!

  2. I love this. Rainbow colours are always a mood lifter; the umbrella quilting - with rainbow thread! - is too cool (and yes, too bad it's not more obviously seen) and I like the way the main pattern "intrudes" into the border. Very nice!

  7. I like your outside the box rainbow colors. It must feel great to make an entire quilt from your scrap bins. Cute backing fabric.

  8. what a great idea to use a rainbow color combination, it looks fantastic. i like the brown in their as well. This is a fun pattern. I think the umbrella quilting pattern is a great choice and looks good. i think it shows up more than you think if your looking at in person.
