The Gotham Quilts Rainbow Rainforest BOM Program

This BOM is now full/closed.

Missed out on this one? Sign up for our email list and never miss out again!


Designed by Elizabeth Hartman, the Rainbow Rainforest quilt features the amazing animals of the Amazon Rainforest, including a Capybara, Pink River Dolphin, Sloth, Jaguar, Armadillo, Toucan, Squirrel Monkey, Tapir, and Caiman.

This quilt is entirely pieced with straight seam regular machine piecing. No templates or paper piecing!

This BOM is suitable for intermediate-level quilters. There's a lot of straight-forward piecing in each animal, and the most challenging part is keeping track of all the pieces that make up each block.

Finished size: 82" x 82"
