When the Rainbow Flower Quilt Block was mentioned in Quilters Newsletter Magazine, Issue 420, quilters started asking me for an Inklingo Shape Collection.
No wonder! Isn’t it a great block? And it’s easier with Inklingo than with any other method.
It was irresistible to me. The Rainbow Flower Shape Collection is ready now.
The curves are graceful and the Rainbow Flower Quilt Block is unusual and impressive. You don’t have to tell anyone how easy it is with Inklingo, but we hope you will.
Rainbow Flower is an old design. It was published by Laura Wheeler in the Illinois State Register in August 1933. It is 420-12 in Jinny Beyer’s Quilter’s Album of Patchwork Patterns.
Print, cut, and sew! Three shapes. No templates, no measuring. Cut with a rotary cutter or scissors!
Gentle Curves in the Rainbow Flower Quilt Block
It is a joy to sew the curves with the stitching lines and matching marks printed on the fabric.
I would love to make a scrappy Rainbow Flower quilt, and fussy cut at least some of the shapes. (I make a window template to see how I should position the freezer paper.)
The variations are endless, so I hope quilt designers will be inspired to create new patterns for these olde shapes.
There are worksheets in the shape collection to get you started.
In the middle of a Canadian winter, I can sew Rainbow Flower Quilt Blocks and think about rainbows over Niagara Falls. Whether you sew by hand or by machine, I think you will love these shapes too.
Are you stronger than I am? I hope you can’t resist it either and make an absolutely fabulous quilt with these shapes. Enjoy!
