The ombre fabrics not only look awesome but FEEL wonderful. They would great for applique pieces too.
Because I made the front of the quilt more to the groom's liking I went a little crazy in picking out the backing more to the bride's liking....orange, bright and in batiks. Never have I chosen a quilt and its backing so different from each other. The quilting will be an all over teardrop swirly pattern so it can be a reversible quilt. Quilt is 62 X71, perfect for the sofa.
I like this quilt and the fabric so much I am going to get more fabric and make my nephew's graduation quilt changing the purple to more blues...lots of blues. Can you believe I have his quilt all set almost like a year ahead of time? That is soooo not me. If my brother happens to be reading this blog...don't tell Davy. I work on Sunday and will get the fabric then....what I do best, buying fabric!!!!
