Color your world with colorful quilts!
If the rainbow of colorful fabrics on store shelves catches your eye every time, then author Amber Johnson's Quilt the Rainbow is a pot of pattern gold for you! All ten quilt patterns are scrap friendly and perfect for fat-quarter collectors, too.
Begin with your favorite color, then quilt your way through a rainbow of hues. And because it takes both sunshine and rain to make a rainbow, there's a rainy-day quilt of scrappy black prints too. If choosing a favorite is too difficult, use all the colors to create an ombré rainbow quilt to showcase the range of colors you love. From beginning to end, you'll be dazzled with these radiant quilts!

Amber has been quilting for more than 20 years. When she was newly married and living away from her immediate family, with a husband who traveled a lot, she needed a hobby! She asked her grandmother Delma to teach her how to quilt. Delma, an award-winning quilter, was thrilled that someone else in the family wanted to learn how to quilt. Although it took Amber about three years to finish her first quilt, she was hooked!
A decade later, Amber started a quilt-pattern design business called Gigi's Thimble, a tribute to the nickname "Gigi" that Delma's great-grandchildren affectionately used for her. Amber has been blogging and designing quilt patterns since 2009. Amber loves to host quilt-alongs on Instagram, do trunk shows, share tutorials, and teach classes. She often finds inspiration in antique quilts--whether in the design itself or in the maker's fabric selection. She hopes to inspire others to think outside the box with their own creative color combinations.
Besides Amber's love of quilting, her greatest joys come from being a wife and being a mother to two teenagers. She grew up in Vancouver, Washington, and now resides in Alpine, Utah, where she loves to run and hike. She's a home-design enthusiast and has a bit of wanderlust, hoping to do a lot more traveling as time and money permit.
