I don’t know why it took me so long to work with ombre fabrics…but now I’m hooked!
This Trellis pattern is made with jelly roll strips, layer cake squares, or even fat quarters. It would be equally beautiful in any fabrics, and maybe even more beautiful with a dark background…I’m obviously making this one again with some other options! I used a jelly roll of the ombre confetti fabrics by V and Co for Moda (I bought mine here on etsy…they are getting hard to find), mixed with a jr. jelly roll of the new confetti colors. You could get this same effect with a fat quarter bundle as well. Jelly Rolls and bundles of ALL the colors will be available this summer I’ve heard.
The pattern includes some tips for making the ombre effect in the layout, but you don’t even need ombre fabrics to achieve it. You could also use solids, or… wouldn’t the Tula Pink basics be amazing in this?!
Nesting seams make this one easy to put together and is the trick for getting the nice points. The seams of the points nest and lock together making the points perfect without much effort. Because you know I love nesting seams!
Kathy quilted this one for me, and I backed it with a big floral from my Hazel fabric.
It’s going to be 83 degrees here this weekend and we are READY!
Have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
