Jumpin' Jax by Jackie Kunkel

I am such a sucker for rainbows and rainbow gradients. And stars! I'm naturally drawn to quilts with any or all of these design elements.

For several quilts in the book, Jackie shares how her patterns look in alternate colorways. I find this so helpful when planning to make a quilt my own.
