A rainbow canoe quilt

Did you see this rainbow canoe quilt on Accuquilt’s blog yet?

I made this with FQ batiks from Island Batik

and the crossed canoe die from Accuquilt

I cut out sets of 4 from each of 24 fabrics (12 colors)

sewing them together they looked like ice cream cones!

and quickly the blocks were together!

Here’s half of the blocks.

and then all the blocks, notice how I did the rainbow order and the repeated for the next 12 and it worked out that if I alternated which block had the dark and light cross or a light or dark background, they were still alternating in the last 12 blocks.

I quilted it in a feather swirl design and added a sort of rainbow batik as binding

A super fun and easy quilt to make!
