How to Make 2-Block Rainbow Quilt:

Step 1

For 2 blocks, cut 2 squares at 4×4 inches in 8 different rainbow colors for a total of 16 squares, then cut 8 squares at 4×4 in white fabric, and 8 squares at 3½ inches in white.

Step 2

Pair each of the 8 color squares with a white square, then draw a diagonal line at the back of the white square from corner to corner, and sew on each side of the line with ¼ inch seam allowance.

Step 3

Cut along the line, then press the seams open, and trim the block to 3½ inches. Now, pair the leftover squares together and make half-square triangles out of them, then arrange them as shown in the video, and start stitching them together making sure to press the seams as you go.

Step 4

Make a second block with the leftover pieces, first, pair the colored squares together and turn them into half-square triangles, then trim them to 3½ inches, and make another set of half-square triangles with the print and white squares.

Step 5

Arrange the half-square triangles together to form a diamond shape at the center, then stitch them together one at a time, and press them as you go. Continue to make more blocks, then assemble the blocks however you want, and stitch them together.
