Welcome back to the Rainbow Cascade Quilt Along!
Rainbow Cascade is the single 10″ paper pieced block you see above, made in a literal rainbow of colors, all put together to create one stunning quilt!
The free pattern includes complete paper pieced patterns in shaded & unshaded versions, 1″ scale for proper printing, suggested cutting instructions to make piecing (and chain piecing!) easier, Coloring Pages for all quilt sizes, fabric amounts needed, and printing permission in case you’d like to print at a copy shop.
On the second and fourth Mondays of each month through April, I’ll be sharing a nudge and letting you know which blocks to make next.
To make this as easy as possible, and to not tie you down to a single quilt along (because we all know that never works!), you will never need to make more than four blocks in a two-week period.

See quilt images below to see where we’re going!

I highly recommend using an Add-A Quarter-Ruler during paper piecing to minimize bulk AND to press seams open when piecing paper pieced sections together. You’ll find more instructions in the pattern document.
