The Rainbow of AGF Pure Solids Diana Quilt

You guys know I love to make a rainbow quilt, and the Diana Quilt Pattern makes it really easy to put together. I have been loving AGF Pure solids lately and thought they would make a pretty, muted rainbow for the cover quilt.

Green tends to be the color that I struggle the most with when making a rainbow, and I really appreciate the greens that are available in the Pure Solids line. They aren't too yellow or too blue.

I can just imagine a larger version of this quilt spread over a bed - this design would be perfect for a twin or queen size quilt.

Here is a full list of the colors that I used in my quilt. I can see myself using these same combination of fabrics for another project in the future - they were an absolute joy to sew with.


Fabric A - Quartz Pink

Fabric B - Sweet Macadamia

Fabric C - Miami Sunset

Fabric D - Grapefruit

Fabric E - Peach Sherbet

Fabric F - Dried Carrot

Fabric G - Mandarin

Fabric H - Creme de la Creme

Fabric I - Banana Cream

Fabric J - Empire Yellow

Fabric K - Honeydew

Fabric L - Lemon Tart

Fabric M - Fresh Sage

Fabric N - Sweet Mint

Fabric O - Spruce

Fabric P - Ocean Fog

Fabric Q - Crystalline

Fabric R - Ocean Waves

Background - Snow


The backing fabric of the quilt is Plaid of my Dreams in Sky flannel by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabrics and it is SO SOFT. This time of year, it's nice to have a quilt that is a little cozier and a little heavier. While minky is great and my kids love it, I usually prefer flannel because it breathes a little better. I am so pleased that Art Gallery is offering quite a few flannel options and will definitely be stocking up on some of these cute prints.

The binding fabric is one of my favorite dark gray solid - Magnetism. I like a dark gray for a rainbow quilt because it frames the quilt and this particular fabric is a really nice, warm gray.

I have a couple more versions of this pattern to share with you this week - if you would like to pick up a copy of the pattern, you can find it in the shop!

  1. I love this rainbow and how muted those pastels are — but I kinda also see ripply strips of bacon? Maybe I’m just hungry! Can you tell us how this pattern would work with obvious directional prints? Would it be hard to manage it so that there’s a distinct “up” and “down”?

    1. Oh my goodness, this just made me laugh so hard! It definitely requires a little attention with directional prints - if you look at the Unruly Nature version of the quilt that I posted, some of those prints were directional. I just cut and laid out one section at a time to make sure that the directions of the fabric worked and it went together nicely!
