If you've been around here any length of time, you know I love rainbows. Whether they are fabrics in rainbow colours, rainbow quilts, a rainbow on my tea mug or my favourite planter, I just love the cheerful look of a whole rainbow of colour to brighten up a day.
Plus, rainbow quilts make great scrap busting projects. And whether you make a rainbow quilt as a DIY baby shower gift, or select the perfect rainbow mug for your quilty BFF, rainbows make great presents, too.
So to share my love of rainbows, I hand-picked some of my favourite rainbows from around the internet, just for you!

Rainbow Fabric BundlesI love rainbow fabric bundles because they are perfect stash builders. I often need to get some extra fat quarters of certain colours, just because I tend to use them less and therefore have less of them, but add a rainbow fat quarter bundle or two to your stash and you should have plenty of choice for your next rainbow quilt project.
Faux Tweed Tonals Fat Quarter Sampler - I love the faux tweed look of the fabrics, and I think they’d be perfect to round out a fabric stash.
Soft Rainbow Strips - I’m picturing a Scrappy Love quilt in these soft pastel rainbow tones.

Rainbow Notions and Fun Items
Nothing beats some fun rainbow items in your life, whether they are in the sewing room or elsewhere in the house.
Clover Wonder Clips - I love using wonder clips for holding my binding, or when sewing pillows or bags, and this collection of rainbow coloured clips puts a smile on my face every time I use them.
Rainbow Tea Tin - I have a thing for tins, and this one has two of my favourite things, tea and rainbows. I like that the tin would be perfect for a handsewing kit, but to be honest, mine would probably have gummy bears in it ;-)
Spinning Colour Wheel Enamel Pin - the most gorgeous enamel pin I have ever seen. It even spins so it's a proper working colour wheel.
Cat Rainbow Watercolour Mug - for all my fellow rainbow-loving crazy cat people out there :-)
