Today I have my favorite ever Modern Ombre Baby Quilt! I am totally lovin’ how it came out! It is one of those items that you get a totally hair brained idea of something that migggght work, but really might not. The pattern originally called for rugby stripes which is what I really liked about it, since it had fresh clean lines. But as I combed pinterest for color combinations that might work, I just kept seeing ombre! Ok, maybe I just kept clicking on ombre….
And then! I started looking through those awesome little color swatch inspiration cards, and I just couldn’t get this color combo out of my head!
I had no idea if it would really work, since the pattern was rugby stripes and I was doing not just ombre, but multi colored ombre.
And then I knew that it was too cool not to take it a step farther and go totally modern with the bunny! Which I just adore. I mean, embroidered eyelashes and pink circle cheeks! I. Can’t. Even.
I stopped by my local quilt shop to see how the colors stacked together and because it was much easier to buy 1/4 yard of each of the stripes there instead of online like I usually do. The shop didn’t have much selection in black in white except this opposite black and white hashtag fabric from Dear Stella which I totally LOVE with the pink and yellow!
Sometimes sewing is serendipitous and comes together exactly as it should! I so love those times!
The solids are Kona Cottons from Robert Kaufman as is the white backing. I use 100% cotton batting to make it crinkle up and look all quilty. And then I topstiched in the ditch and through the middle of each stripe.
This Modern Ombre Baby Quilt Pattern is so fun and comes with 4 different animal varieties so you can sew it up again and again and each time it will different! Also check out my Flutterby Kite which I made for OneThimble Magazine.
