Ombre Mountains Baby Quilt - The Sweet Blues One!

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


I have the cutest Ombre Mountains baby quilt to share with you today!  This quilt top was finished last fall, but I didn't get around to posting it here on the blog until today!




Simple Design

Ombre Mountains is an easy quilt pattern - if you can make an HST, you can make this design.  The block sizes and rectangles vary by quilt size, and it took quite a bit of figuring to make actual quilt sizes because those rectangles in there throw a spanner in the wrench (or is it works)? {that's not an American saying, so I don't know if that's how it goes, but that's what came to mind}. 😄



Fabrics make the quilt!

This baby quilt is made with a fat quarter bundle of Wilmington Prints.  I can't remember the exact name, but Wilmington puts out a lot of fabric bundles in a single colorway, so maybe you can find something similar.  I added in the lightest blue, as well as the darkest blue.

The backing is a Moda Grunge in light blue.

This quilt would look spectacular in a rainbow of colors!

This quilt top was made by Kare, one of my professional sewists.



Quilting Design

Ombre Mountains is quilted in Wandering Spirals, a digital design done on my Handi Quilter Fusion with ProStitcher.  This is another one of my go-to designs that always looks smashing on a quilt.  Thread color is light gray.



All the Sizes

The Ombre Mountains quilt pattern includes all of the sizes - 6 in all!  You're covered with Baby, Lap (for smaller peeps), Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.

Ombre Mountains is made from 14 fabrics which can be an ombre of a single colorway like this quilt, or a variety of colorways such as this pink/purple/teal one I made in this blog post.  It would also look smashing in a rainbow of color!
