Kelly Biscopink: Sew the Rainbow – Rainbow Quilts

Rainbow quilts are a great way to brighten any day! This post is from guest blogger Kelly Biscopink. Thanks, Kelly, for sharing some of your favorite rainbow themed quilts with us!

Unicorns love ‘em, little kids love ‘em, I love ‘em—I mean, who doesn’t love a rainbow? I have been quilting with ROYGBIV in mind since I was 8 years old, and not much has changed since then. Every time I go to make a new quilt, I find myself gravitating to that same familiar, happy color scheme.

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite rainbow quilts with you today, as well as some great rainbow-y quilts from recent issues of “Quilty”.

Rainbow Quilt: Kelly's first of many rainbow quilts
My very first quilt had a rainbow theme! A tried-and-true color theme and simple blocks was a great way to tackle my first quilt.

This little wall hanging, made with Anna Maria Horner’s free “Feathers” pattern, doesn’t scream rainbow, but it definitely says it softly. The feathers are arranged with a ROYGBIV theme in mind, gradating from one color to the next on the prism.

A scrappy little HST baby quilt got the rainbow touch, this time in pastel, sherberty colors. Pink instead of read, peach instead of orange – you get the picture. It may not be a full-on unicorn rainbow, but it still has the whimsy of a rainbow quilt.

This gorgeous geometric design called “In The Middle” from the May/June 2017 issue of Quilty uses the color wheel to create a stunning pop-out effect. While you could use any array of colors in any order, I’m particularly drawn to, you guessed it, the rainbow layout of the sample quilt.

Not only do you get a rainbow color scheme in “Crooked Path”, a pattern in the July/August 2017 issue of Quilty, you also get the feel of a rainbow’s arches in the stepped down pattern. How cool is that?
