Ombre waves quilt- finished

Hooray hooray! This delightful quilt is done. I don’t have a washer/dryer in my apartment, so I usually have to wait til I have a batch of quilts ready to wash when they’re done. Here is one of three I just finished.

I was inspired by this quilting on this lovely, oceanic quilt on Sew while he sleeps.

I really like how this turned out. I won’t be heartbroken if it ends up on my bed. Or guest bedroom. šŸ™‚

  1. Hi Ann, did you do two or three strips of each color? also, how big is the finished quilt? I want to do this for my daughter for her twin bed. I have a lovely jelly roll in purples (here’s the link if it matters: https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/detail/32703/robert-kaufman/robert-kaufman-fabrics/kona-cotton-lavender-fields-roll-up ) which I’m going to pair with grey for my neutral. It’s my first quilt and I don’t want to screw it up!

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Gail! I did 2 strips, because the jelly roll I had contained two strips of every color. My finished size was much smaller than a twin- probably approx 44 x 40. But I think if you added some border work around the edge it’d look fantastic and fill out the size. I love that jelly roll! I have wanted to make this quilt again, and it will be a great first quilt for you. This was one of my earliest ones. You’ve got this!

      • Thank you so much! I might just get another jelly roll and do 3-4 strips of each of the 12 colors. I’m nervous but I think this will be a good first quilt and I have until next Christmas to complete it. šŸ™‚
