Ribbon Rainbow Block of the Month

King with Black Background
Full/Queen with Snow Background

This stunning block of the month is made using premium quilting Kona cottons. It is available with a black background or snow (off white). The program runs for 9 months and is prepared in rounds, starting in the center. This is a great project for confident beginners and beyond, as it is made using strips sub-cut into rectangles and squares. Some squares are marked and sewn on the diagonal to create ribbons.

Over the course of 9 months, you will receive fabrics to create a full/queen size (90” x 90”) quilt. To upgrade to a king size (108” x 108” quilt), you will need an additional 3 yards of background fabric (included in the 9th month as a King Upgrade for an additional fee).
