Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew a straight line - only straight line sewing of all rectangles in this quilt!!!

Pattern Description:

This is a listing for my Rainbow Steps Quilt Pattern ~ a simple quilt block design using modern fabrics, and is suitable for all levels of quilters and sewers - if you can sew a straight line then this is the pattern for you! It does require experience in rotary cutting. It is completely composed of rectangles.

The fabrics used are a variety of rainbow colours tone-on-tone fabrics teamed with a white solid, giving the quilt a bright, colourful, modern and fresh look. However, the pattern is equally suited to any style of fabric from reproduction to 1930's to romantic florals. It is also a good alternative for an 'I Spy' quilt.

The pattern is for a quilt sized 60" x 72" (150cm x 180cm). However, this could be easily adjusted by simply adding or subtracting blocks, rows and columns.

The written pattern has been tested by a beginner quilter to ensure ease of understanding of the instructions. Photographs are provided for ALL steps of the construction process to give clear and precise information on all sewing steps. The usual line diagrams have NOT been used at all. Handy hints and tips which will assist in the successful completion of this quilt have been added throughout the pattern.

All fabric requirements
Sewing and basic patchwork hints

Layout and Assembly instructions
