Let's start the new year off right! In 2024, I am committing to my health, both nutritionally and physically sooo… I wanted to start us off with a Quilt Along that will not only build our sewing skills, but also inspire health!
Join me starting January 10 as we sew the “Eat the Rainbow” quilt together! It’s going to be so inspirational, fun -- and the QAL is totally FREE!

An undeniable benefit of country life and growing your own food, is being able to eat from farm to table! When my children were young, I always told them that we need to “Eat the Rainbow”–meaning a little bit of all the beautiful fruits and vegetables we grew in our garden. This quilt pays homage to this life lesson of enjoying all the colors of food that we eat!
Size: 68 1/2” x 82”
Techniques: Traditionally pieced with some curved seams for the rainbows and HSRs for the carrots.
I made the Eat the Rainbow quilt in my Country Life Fabrics for Riley Blake Designs! See the fabric requirements below. This quilt is fat quarter-friendly, so you can easily use your stash or a fat quarter bundle of your choice. To make the quilt in Country Life Fabrics, shop here.
This QAL is fully supported, with tips and tricks and all the organization you will need to just relax and enjoy all the fun sewing. We'll share weekly blog posts, emails, social media posts, and videos to make sure you have everything you need have success sewing Eat the Rainbow. If you haven't already, sign up for QAL communication at the link below.
The Eat the Rainbow QAL starts on January 10 and ends February 21! Each week, you'll make 2-4 blocks in this sampler-style quilt. For just a few hours of sewing each week, you'll whip up a gorgeous quilt in no time! See the schedule below, although you can sew at your own pace!
