    Does anyone have or know of a paper pieced pattern of a rainbow? I've been looking all over the internet but can't find one.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hmmm. Not to say there isn't one out there. But I would think a paper-pieced rainbow would be rather hard and maybe look odd with all those curves.

    I agree but it wouldn't have to be perfectly curved. I'm looking for something to just get the idea across.

    Try some bargello with the right colors. You can create curves and waves using stripe piecing.

    Why not draw it out on freezer paper the exact size and design you want... then number and letter (by color) your pieces. Then you can place a piece of tracing paper or something opaque and trace on to it and then paper piece. I've done similar things many times... and it really is simple and you get exactly what you want to fit into the space you want. Good luck! :mrgreen:

    Maybe you could adapt part of the wedding ring pattern?
