A while back, Vanessa Christenson asked me if I would be willing to make something with her new Ombre Bloom fabrics. Yes! I loved working with her prints last year when I made my Zola quilt. Her ombre fabrics are brilliant, and I love that she is releasing a new iteration of them.
I played around a little with making one of my other patterns with the bundle, but I ended up deciding I wanted to do something new. A couple of days later, I had a plan.
Almost all of my patterns are inspired by a fabric collection - I start working with some fabrics in EQ8 and come up with some ideas. The test then comes when I try mocking up the quilt with different fabrics. Sometimes, a pattern isn't very versatile and will only work within a very specific set of color or pattern parameters - that is fine, but it will make the pattern more challenging to work with. Sometimes, a quilt will work with just about anything and those are the best kind of patterns. This is definitely one of those kinds of patterns.
Because there are so many different shades in the fat quarter bundle, I was able to keep the rainbow version fat quarter friendly. Yay! The pattern includes a table with each ombre color that I used in my quilt - most of these colors are available in Vanessa's ombre collections, but not all of them so you might need to make some minor substitutions.
You could also make this the rainbow version using solid scraps - that is on my future project list. I have lots of leftover solid pieces in my stash and I think this would use them up nicely.
These ombre fabrics work really well for this pattern because you can get the main (darker) triangles and the accent (lighter) triangles from the same fabric. The instructions are in their own section toward the end of the pattern and there are instructions for making rainbow versions in all three sizes.
You can find this pattern as both a paper and PDF pattern in my shop. If you make your own version, please use hashtag #thegeorgiequilt and tag me @kitchentablequilting so I can see what you made!
