A Must-Make Quilt Pattern for our Ombre Fabrics!

We first introduced our Ombre fabrics in 2016 and they have been a hit ever since! If you’ve ever wondered what kinds of projects to make with these gorgeous fabrics (besides the Glow/Pastel GlowDapple free patterns and recommended publications on our website!), we have some amazing quilt inspiration today brought to you by Barb Cline.

Caribbean Delight Quilt

Barb is a quilt designer, author and teacher from Virginia who has been sharing her her techniques with others for over 35 years. She’s written five quilting books with C&T Publishing. (Find her website here and blog here!) This talented quilter recently fell in love with our ombre fabrics and wrote a super cool pattern that we’re thrilled show you.

The Caribbean Delight pattern features our digitally printed Rainbow Gradation set against a background of Solid-ish Basic by Kimberly Einmo. Barb was kind enough to share some behind-the-scenes photos of its creation. Check them out below!
