Get ready to fall head over heels for this diagonally rainbow-striped cotton fabric from Blank Quilting. It is a delightful, dazzling design that will instantly brighten your day and your sewing projects! Created by the talented Erica Billups, the owner and lead artist of Liberty and Lilac. This fabric is part of the Better Together Collection which aims to bring joy, inspiration, and a pop of eye-catching colour to any creation.

Within this vibrant pattern, you’ll discover a playful variety of colours and designs: charming red with white spots, sunny orange, cheerful yellow, and lovely white adorned with multicoloured hearts like a rainbow within a rainbow. Then there is lush green, royal blue with white stars, regal purple, and crisp white. The stripes vary in width, giving this fabric a friendly quilt-like appearance that’s simply irresistible.

This rainbow-inspired fabric has a subtle marble effect that adds depth and a touch of sophistication to its captivating design. The colours are so vivid and bright, they’ll remind you of a child’s joyful drawings of rainbows and sunshiny days.

Diagonal stripes hold a unique charm that sets them apart from traditional vertical or horizontal stripes. They can add an extra layer of excitement and visual interest to any project, giving it a more dynamic feel with a sense of movement and energy. This helps to give you the opportunity to play with interesting patterns and angles that can breathe new life into your designs, without having to be concerned about sewing diagonally against the grain, so there are none of the associated concerns for fabric moving or stretching as you would expect by cutting a traditional stripe-patterned cotton diagonally.

When used in clothing, diagonal stripes can create a flattering shape. Perfect for lively children’s clothing or for the young at heart. Diagonal stripes often give a slimming effect, while also bringing a sense of depth and dimension, which can be quite mesmerising as the fabric moves with you. When using bright diagonal lines in home sewing projects, they can be a bold and striking choice that adds visual intrigue to any space. But where this pattern really comes into its own is amongst quilting enthusiasts. Diagonal striped fabrics can be used to create stunning quilt patterns that break free from the traditional square or rectangular layouts. Think of the spiral designs, vibrant chevron patterns, or eye-catching herringbone effects you can achieve using this fabulous fabric! Wherever your creativity takes you, this cotton is bound to help you spread a little happiness.

Erica’s artistic vision is all about inspiring and empowering the young and young-at-heart, and this fabric is a shining example of her dedication to spreading positivity through her work. Inspired by positive affirmations and the love they foster, this fabric is perfect for adding a splash of happiness to your day and your sewing projects.

Available in half a metre, per metre, and fat quarter size – 55cm x 50cm (21 ½ x 19 ½ inches) – this fabric is ready to be the star of your next colourful creation. So if you’re ready to embrace your inner child or let your joy of sewing shine through, then this rainbow-fueled fabric could well be the cotton that lights up your sewing room.
