Ombre Strip Square Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is an Ombre Strip Square Lap Quilt!  There's nothing like selling a made-to-order quilt to bump a quilt to the top of the list!

The beauty of the quilt is simply that ombre fabric is spectacular!

This quilt is made from the kit available on Craftsy.  The quilt kit actually made many more blocks than are called for in the pattern by adding in a binding fabric.   The quilt increased by 11" both directions with an additional six blocks leftover.  The fabric from those six blocks could have been used for binding, but I didn't know that ahead of time.

Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Split Square, pattern available here, quilt kit available here.
Size:  66" x 77"
Fabric:  Boundless Ombre from the quilt kit
Backing:  Also Boundless ombre
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly
Quilting:  Zing on Gratitude in white thread.

the quilt I link to was a Craftsy kit also from several years ago and it made a larger quilt too - I think they are generous with the fabric

Your quilt is gorgeous!!! I'd check to see if the kit is still available but I'm in the middle of buying lots and lots of fabric on the shop hop so I'd better resist the temptation.
