Easy Rainbow Raindrops Baby Quilt

This Rainbow Raindrops Baby Quilt is a great way to use leftovers of your favourite brightly coloured scraps as you only need a 3″ x 3″ square of each piece.

You won’t be emptying your scrap bin with this free applique quilt pattern but you can give that last piece of precious fabric pride of place!


Cut one large piece of background fabric – this can be plain white, white on white print or another low volume print.

Preparing your Background


Iron on whichever fusible product you are using to the back of your 3 “ x  3” squares before cutting them into the raindrop shapes.

Applying Fusible


Cut out your rainbow raindrops. You can either print the included template on to card stock and use it as a cutting template.

Cutting your Rainbow Raindrops


Layout your raindrops on your quilt top before ironing in place using the fusible.

Layout and Fusing

The raindrops are arranged in a cascading pattern.  It is easiest to start with the middle line of raindrops and work out.
