A More Coordinated Color Theme Will be Wonderful, Too!

Choose a variety of fat quarters to give this lovely quilt a colorful scrappy look. A neutral background is great for setting off brightly colored fabrics.

Batiks and low-contrast prints are beautiful in this quilt. But go ahead and choose whatever fabric styles you prefer. The quilt will take on a different personality and be just as wonderful.


Four-patch blocks and half-square triangles combine to create the compelling design. It’s all about values so choose fabrics accordingly.

Instructions are provided by the designer, Lucy A. Fazely, for quilts in three sizes:

  • 48″ x 58″
  • 68″ x 88″
  • 88″ x 108″

You’ll find the pattern for the “Rainbow Illusions” quilt in A Rainbow of Quilts.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
