Blogger's Quilt Festival | Ombre Love

Ombre Love | A Finished Quilt
Blogger's Quilt Festival is in full swing over at Amy's Creative Side and I'm excited to share one of my favorite finished quilts from the past few months, Ombre Love! Inspired by paint chips from the hardware store, I used the ombre prints from Vanessa Christenson's first fabric line called Simply Color from Moda Fabrics. The ombre fabric paired with a crisp white solid really makes for a striking contrast!

I quilted this throw size quilt using horizontal wavy organic quilting. It really complements wavy pattern created by the ombre "paint ships"! Wavy organic quilting is just a simple twist on straight-line quilting -- except the lines don't have to be super straight! It's a great beginner friendly way to quilt on your domestic sewing machine! The finished quilt measures 58" x 58".

The binding fabric comes from the same V & Co. fabric line. Gray chevron fabric = quick & easy bias-looking binding! I've actually stocked up on this fabric because I love how it works as a binding!
