Rainbow Cascade – Nudge for Set 3

rainbow cascade badge.jpg

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.

Need to learn to paper piece? I can help with that!

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.

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.

    I guess I’m confused. All of these 3 months have had the same block or am I nuts? Please tell me.

      Hi, Bonnie,

      You’re definitely not nuts! The entire quilt is made from the same block. I’ve divided which blocks to make into sections to make it less intimidating as a quilt along. On the second and fourth Monday, I share which colors to make next.
