Welcome to my entry for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I am so excited to share this quilt with you - it is one of my favorites!
Many moons ago I was inspired by this quilt from Kati at From the Blue Chair. But I wanted more of a random color assortment. I also really wanted to use the wonderful Ombre prints from Simply Color.
I laid out the fabric and figured out that if I cut 2.5" squares, each square would 'read' as it's own color. So I purchased half yards of each color, and chopped them all up!
See previous posts about this quilt here, here, and here.
I could not be more pleased with how this turned out! I chose to quilt it through every other square using light grey thread. I backed and bound it with Kona Medium Grey - I debated using a print, but decided that the front was so busy it needed a quiet back.
I love this quilt, and sort of (crazily!) want to make another one! I love small simple patchwork, and this was a great project for chain piecing and simple mindless sewing!
I hope you'll stop by the festival and vote for my quilt! :) (Link at the top of this post!) (Now ends our shameless self promotion!)
