Ombre for Baby! A Quick Quilt Idea by Caroline!

Simple. Stylish. Super easy. That's kinda what we're all about these days. Obviously less isn't always more but sometimes it sew is, like with this adorable tutorial that Caroline created for a Baby Ombre Quilt! If you're looking to make an inexpensive baby gift, this quilt is perfect for you! It's so modern and gender neutral that any mother will love seeing her little one cozying up with it or napping on top of it! If you have zero time before that baby shower you're attending this weekend, it can easily be created in an afternoon.

Caroline was inspired by Vanessa Christenson's ombré baby quilt using her awesome ombre solids from the collection Simply Color and decided to make a similar one with half-square triangles. I love how it ended up looking like an ombré chevron.. kind of on accident!
The final measurement of this quilt is 36" x 36" (but can easily be made larger for an adult size!)

What you'll need (for the quilt top only):
1 1/4 yards of Vanessa Christensen's ombré fabric in grey
Rotary cutter//mat OR scissors
Sewing machine
Coordinating thread
Pencil OR chalk pencil

Isn't this adorable?? And SEW simple! It's the best when you can create something totally unique with just a little time and imagination! You can get the full instructions for this project, including backing and binding size and how she quilted it over on Caroline's Blog!
Happy Sewing!
