Ombre Mountains Throw Quilt Kit in Quartz Metallic Tonals! from Busy Hands Quilts

Ombre Mountains has been kitted in the Throw size by Connecting Threads in their Quartz Metallic Tonals fabric collection!  This is a super sweet quilt with colors ranging from deep pinks, purples, blues, to aquas.  It's stunning, for sure!

The Ombre Mountains quilt pattern includes 6 sizes - Baby, Lap, Throw, Twin,  Queen, and King.  I've done all of the math for you to figure out what size of block and rectangles are needed to create actual quilt sizes - it wasn't easy, but I love doing that sort of math!  ♥
You ...

Ombre Mountains Baby Quilt - The Sweet Blues One! from Busy Hands Quilts

I have the cutest Ombre Mountains baby quilt to share with you today!  This quilt top was finished last fall, but I didn't get around to posting it here on the blog until today!

Simple Design

Ombre Mountains is an easy quilt pattern - if you can make an HST, you can make this design.  The block sizes and rectangles vary by quilt size, and it took quite a bit of figuring to make actual quilt sizes because those rectangles in there throw a spanner in ...

Ombre Gems Throw Quilt in Ombre Confetti Fabric! from Busy Hands Quilts

This week's custom order finish is an Ombre Gems throw quilt in Ombre Confetti fabrics.

The quilt top was made by my sewist, Kare, and quilted and bound by me.  The only way I can take custom quilt orders is to have one of my sewists make the quilt top; I'm too busy with the pattern design side of my business to make the entire quilt myself.  I have found sewists that sew even better than I ...

The Beauty of Blenders from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

The hum of a blender spinning takes us to poolside parties and cool, tropical drinks (with those cute little umbrellas!). We’re getting thirsty just thinking about it! Refresh your summer quilts with blender fabrics in a rainbow of color! These gorgeous fabrics go beyond basic for smooth color transitions and beautiful texture. 

Blenders are incredibly versatile, from tone-on-tone prints to crackle texture and even trendy ombre. They aren’t quite solids, but they aren’t exactly patterned. They blend seamlessly into your quilt projects and add a variety of color and interest without being too intense. Blenders are great ...

Grandpa's Barn in Ombre Bloom Throw Quilt! from Busy Hands Quilts

Grandpa's Barn meets modern Ombre Bloom for a truly sparkly quilt!  This quilt is made from 19 different fabrics, but it looks like a lot more because they are ombres in varying hues.  Ombre for the win!

Grandpa's Barn is entirely strip pieced and is jelly roll friendly, so grab your favorite strips and get ready to roll!

The quilt pattern includes 5 sizes - Baby, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King - and centers around the traditional barn raising layout.  You could, of course, lay out the blocks in many different layouts for a totally different quilt.

Spray the rainbow from Ibisco Quilt

Oggi mi sono cimentata in alcune prove che intendevo fare da settimane, ovvero da quando mi sono arrivati i colori spray per tessuto della Marabu.
Visto che volevo testare anche l'intensità dei colori, li ho usati tutti, disposti secondo l'arcobaleno.
In precedenza ho tinto tessuti con i colori batik, ma ero rimasta insoddisfatta dal tono un po' spento dei colori e soprattutto dall'aspetto delle fibre del cotone dopo la tintura a caldo: sembrano quasi cotte, e il tessuto ne risulta rigido e difficilmente lavorabile con la tecnica hawaiiana. Poi ho provato i Soleil della Pebeo, ma la ...
