The Rainbow Crystal blocks require a combination of paper piecing skills, strip piecing skills, and traditional piecing skills. There are no Y-seams or curved piecing, so it is a relatively straightforward quilt pattern that would work well for a beginner to intermediate quilter.
The quilt uses 2-1/2” strips and the cover design was created with the Prismatic Strip Set designed by Judy and Judel Niemeyer, manufactured by Timeless Treasures. It uses (1) package of 2-1/2” strips, then (8) accent colors that mimic a rainbow, and black and white background fabrics. The block is used in a 91” x 91” layout that includes (48) diamonds.
Rainbow Crystal can be expanded to 100"x100" through the addition of a 2 Pieced Border Queen. Border must be ordered separately
