Good morning! I wanted to share with you how I made one of my favorite quilts, not that yardage from this awesome ombre line is back!
I made this quilt about three years ago, using Vanessa Christenson's awesome Ombre prints. At the time, there were only 7 colors available, and now there are 19!
This is a super simple quilt to put together, and the qualities of the ombre fabric make it look much more involved than it actually is.
I used 1/2 yard cuts (that were actually overcut I believe to about 20"), but you could easily use 2 jelly rolls or quarter yard cuts since there are more prints now!
Cut your yardage (if you are using that) into 2.5" strips. (If you're using a jelly roll, you can skip this step!)
Sub cut your strips into 2.5" squares. You should be able to get 16 squares from each strip. (If you use quarter yards from each print, you should be able to get 912 squares. If you use two jelly rolls, you'll have many more!)
Calculate how many squares you have, and how big you want your quilt to be. Mine was 28 squares across, and 33 rows down (I had enough squares for 34 rows, and I misplaced a whole row while I was sewing them up!)
Then I put all of my squares into a largish box and mixed them well. I would then pull two squares at a time and sew them together. When I had all my sets of two, I would make sets of four. Continue piecing into rows until your rows are your desired length. Then press your seams, and pin and sew your rows together.
Baste, quilt and bind! I quilted mine through every other square.
And that's it! Awesome color with really little effort! I'd love to make this over again using all of the new colors! I'd love to see one if you make one as well!
