The Iris Quilt in Ombre

When I first started writing patterns, I generally only made one version of each one. In fact, it has been pretty rare for me to ever make a pattern more than once. But about a year ago I decided I wanted to try to make at least 2 versions before I released a pattern.

I wasn't sure how much I was going to enjoy this - I like to mix things up - but it has actually been great. Making the pattern once is fun, but making it differently is even more fun. 

This was actually the first version of my Iris Pattern. I had some Ombre Confetti Dots fabric leftover from a different project, and thought it would be perfect for testing out this pattern. I am so pleased with how it turned out!

The ombre prints work particularly well for this pattern because each fabric looks like more than one fabric once its cut up. So even though I used a relatively small number of fabrics to make this quilt, it looks like I used a bunch.

This is not the first ombre quilt I have made (see here and here) and it won't be the last - in fact, I kind of want to make this one again with the plain ombre fabrics in a more limited number of colors.

I also think it would be really fun to use this off white ombre dot as a background fabric - it would be really interesting as a background fabric in a lot of different projects.

The quilt is backed in pink minky and I used a dark purple solid for the binding. 

I did make a third version of this pattern and it is VERY scrappy, but I have to quilt the two quilts that I already have basted so I have enough pins to baste that one. Hopefully I can share it soon.

If you would like to make your own version of the Iris Quilt Pattern, you can find it is in the shop. I finally got the paper versions in stock today (there was a bit of a delay) and all of the current orders have been mailed out.
