Example text

To start, take about an 18˝ length of thread, thread the needle, and knot the end of the thread with a small, one-loop knot. Bury the knot by gently tugging the thread until the knot pulls through to the batting. Then rock the needle back through to the quilt top. Snip the thread end. Use the ruler to ensure the corners are square, or 90°. If the quilt has straight sides, use straight-cut binding, but if the quilt has curved or other irregular sides, use bias binding. STRAIGHT-CUT BINDING From the binding fabric, cut 2½˝ widths of fabric until you have enough fabric to cover each side of the quilt plus an extra 20˝–30˝ for seaming the strips and joining the ends.

TIP Be sure the rainbow blocks are arranged the same way throughout the layout and as they are assembled into the quilt top. Press the seams toward the hourglass blocks. Note: The middle row (the one with seven rainbow blocks and eight hourglass blocks) does not have triangles at each end. Press. Press. Make a quilt backing 76˝ × 76˝. Baste the quilt sandwich using your favorite method (see Finishing the Quilt). Quilt as desired. Trim and square the quilt (see Squaring the Quilt). Bind Finish the binding as preferred (see Binding the Quilt).

To make a baby quilt, make 4 blocks and arrange them into 2 blocks × 2 blocks; to make a crib quilt, make 6 blocks and arrange them into 2 blocks × 3 blocks; to make a throw quilt, make 9 blocks and arrange them into 3 blocks × 3 blocks. The “pluses,” alternating between high and low volume, carry the rainbow across the quilt. For this quilt, I chose higher-volume rainbow fabrics for the rainbow pluses in the foreground and lower-volume rainbow fabrics for the rainbow pluses in the background.
