Red and yellow and pink and green… why limit the number of colours you quilt with when you can sew them all? Set aside some sewing time, grab your stash of solids and get ready to surround yourself with the shades of the rainbow (and some snuggly quilts, too). Here’s a project preview of the rainbow quilt patterns and projects you’ll find inside…
