    I am looking for ideas to do a quilt for a seven year old girl, who likes rainbows. Not sure what to do. Appreciate any suggestions.
    Thanks Shazz

    This is a WIP that I am making for my daughter. I got this one as a kit off ebay and I want to make it a bit longer but not much wider, but you could probably do something similar using a french braid pattern. It is done in batik fabrics which I love.

    When my daughter was young she had a lovely quilt with unicorns on it jumping over rainbows, don't have a pattern for it, I just thought the two went together really well!
    She is all grown up now but her signature/seal is a unicorn over a rainbow and her favourite quote is,

    "Unicorns live in constant fear of becoming a figment of their own imagination"

    You could make a Bargello quilt. Then the colors would curve like a rainbow. Woody's is very pretty, too.

    That beautiful. Everytime I look at a quilt on here I want to make one like it. I'll need to live to be as old as Methuselah to get them all done.

    Oooh, I agree, a bargello would be great too, there is a great tutorial done here on the board.

    Or what about something like this log cabin? (first one in the third row)

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments about my quilt now I just need to find time to finish it.
