I love the ombre fabrics from Simply Color that came out a few months ago. The colors are fun, and the various shades give you a lot of flexibility in what can be created from them. I created this baby quilt by carefully cutting and placing fabrics. I detail my process in the pattern.
I have a full FQ bundle of this line that I've cut into 18" squares for another quilt. I pieced the scraps for the back of this quilt. The binding is the grey ombre fabric which makes for a fun, simple binding.
I quilted this one very densely. I tried a pattern shown in Angela Walters Craftsy class. Although I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I'm not sure that I like a quilt with this much stitching. It makes it more stiff. I tried the Pellon bamboo batting for this quilt which helped. The bamboo was easy to work with and has a nice drape. The pictures were taken before I washed the quilt, but it washed up quite nicely.
- The pdf pattern is on sale this week for $6.50 on Craftsy and Etsy.
- Simply Color can be found at Pink Castle Fabrics,. Marmalade Fabrics, Intrepid Thread, and I Don't Do Dishes.
- Brenda at Pink Castle Fabrics will be listing a kit for the baby and throw size quilts made with this pattern! Those should list around the end of the week, and I'll let you know as soon as they are available.
