My sister @rachelrummy and her husband recently bought a house, so I offered to make them a quilt as a housewarming/birthday/Christmas/all upcoming holidays gift! 😆 Knowing she's more of a solids gal, I did digital mock-ups of a few different quilt options using these #bellasolids shades of blue and this is the version she picked. I love it so much that if Rachel doesn't like it, she can send it right back to me! 😉
I used @suzyquilts #trianglejittersquilt and sized it up to queen size using math that I was totally unprepared to do, but thankfully worked out well! As usual, @crinklelove did a great job on the long arm quilting - and she suggested this variegated thread which is perfect for the ombre theme of this quilt. I ran with it and used ombre fabric for the binding. The backing is solid teal. All fabrics are by @modafabrics from @fatquartershop.
If you can't tell, I'm a huge fan of Suzy's quilt patterns - they're modern, bold and designy so they really appeal to me as a designer myself. And they're simple to use, which is important to me as a relatively new and infrequent quilter without a lot of patience. I highly recommend her patterns and blog for anyone looking to get into quilting!
