Ombré Starling Quilt Sample Variation


The Starling quilt sample shall be out there TOMORROW, March 1 to subscribers of The Reducing Desk! It’s a joyful explosion of colour and texture, a fantastic excuse to make use of all types of beautiful materials collectively randomly scattered all through the quilt. Hey! My title is Lilo and I’m the creator of Hint Creek Quilting.

When working by the check part of this sample, my good buddy Sarah and I began to marvel what it’d appear to be if we organized the colours reasonably than randomly scattering them all through the quilt. I did a tad little bit of math, she made some mock-ups, and BAM! We got here up with an ombré Starling format that may be modified utilizing any colours you want!

At first look, you would possibly suppose it’s a totally different quilt sample altogether, however with just some changes to the material portions, and a few colour group, Starling comes collectively with out a hitch utilizing the identical directions from the sample. The mathematics and directions are to make an ombré throw measurement Starling quilt. Be a part of me!

The very first thing Sarah and I did was view the throw quilt as a group of 9 columns. The columns are damaged down within the diagram beneath. The columns repeat throughout the quilt transferring from left to proper. The entire odd numbered columns use the identical mixture of blocks, and the even numbered columns use the identical mixture of blocks.

For essentially the most visually gorgeous ombré Starling quilt, choose 9 colours that fade from one to the subsequent in addition to a contrasting background cloth. Kits for the nice and cozy and funky quilts pictured on this put up can be found from Sarah Made.

I quilted each of those quilts utilizing edge-to-edge pantographs. The cool quilt makes use of the Bubble Clams panto by Sew Shabby Quilting. The nice and cozy quilt makes use of the Abundance panto is from City Elementz.

The pantograph on this cool ombré Starling quilt is named Bubble Clams.

The pantograph on this heat ombré Starling quilt is named Abundance.

Upon getting your materials chosen, place them so as from 1-9 and label them. You will have 1/3 yard for all of the odd numbered colours, and a Fats Quarter or 10″ x WOF minimize for all of the even numbered colours. Your Background amount will stay the identical as is listed within the sample.

From the entire odd numbered materials, minimize (2) b items to assemble the suitable variety of flying geese, and (4) a items for the square-in-square models. From the entire even numbered colours, minimize (1) b piece to your flying geese and (8) c items.

Minimize your Background cloth as instructed within the Starling sample. Use the sample directions to assemble the flying geese and square-in-square models.  

Upon getting your whole blocks constructed, and utilizing our examples as a information, lay the blocks out in an area the place you’ll be able to see all of it collectively as a quilt prime. Make sure that all of your flying geese are turned the correct means!
