We’ve made it 12 weeks and we are now ready for the last row of your Rainbow Rows quilt! Yay!–I know Elonie is ready to have her quilt finished!
For this row, I am using Pure Elements Cabernet. I had such a hard time photographing the true color of this dark purple fabric. You can best see it in this post–so just pretend that all the pictures below are a nice dark purple and not some off shade of black! =p
Fabric Requirements: 1/4 yard Cabernet Pure Elements Fabric by Art Gallery and 1/2 yard Moda Bella PFD White
From the Purple fabric cut (2) 2 1/2″ x wof strips; subcut into (16) 2 1/2″ squares, cut an additional (2) 2 1/2″ x wof strips; subcut into (8) 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles
From the White Fabric cut (2) 6 1/2″ x wof strips; subcut into (7) 6 1/2″ squares and (2) 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles, also cut (2) 2 1/2″ x wof strips; subcut into (32) 2 1/2″ squares
Sew together two white 2 1/2″ squares and one 2 1/2″ purple square as pictured. Make a total of 16 units.
Sew together two of the units made above and one 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ purple rectangle to make a plus block. Make a total of 8 blocks.
Sew together the plus blocks and the white 6 1/2″ squares–alternate pieced/white squares beginning and ending with a pieced block. Sew a 3 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ white rectangle to the top and the bottom of the strip.
Sew the final strip to the Rainbow Rows Quilt Top.
And we now have a completed quilt top! I hope you have all enjoyed these weekly installments of the Rainbow Rows Quilt. I am glad to have a finished quilt that I hope Elonie will enjoy for years to come!
If you have made or are making a Rainbow Rows Quilt of your own I would love if you would share it in the LMS flickr group!
