Taste the Rainbow is a modern paper pieced quilt design based on the traditional birds in the air block.
This quilt design is an intermediate to advanced level design and assumes basic paper piecing skills. Taste the Rainbow only contains templates, it does not contain cutting or detailed piecing instructions. The templates do not include a 1/4" seam allowance around the sub-sections, this needs to be added on when trimming the pieced sub-sections.
Taste the Rainbow finishes at 32 ½" x 32 ½", a wall hanging or small baby quilt size. Borders may be added to enlarge the quilt.
A coloring diagram of the quilt top is included in the file to audition color schemes. Each quilter has a different preference on the size of the fabric piece relative to the size of the paper pieced block section. The fabric amounts needed for the quilt will vary slightly if you decide to cut larger or smaller pieces.
Background fabric - 3 yards
Triangle fabrics - 16 fat eighths
48 foundation paper sheets (or regular copy paper)
