Crescent Quilt - Ombre Solids

I am so, so excited to share this all-solids Crescent quilt with you all! When I first started planning my Crescent samples, I knew I'd be making the Adorn one, and I had a blue-and-white quilt planned as well. That is, until I realized neither of them were an all-solids quilt and I simply couldn't have that.

I think it's no secret around here that I love, love, my all-solids quilts so I quickly had to rethink my strategy and after giving it some thought I went with an ombre-ish/sunset/beachy bunch of fabrics.

In order to get the Ombre effect, I did have to change up the fabric requirements just a bit. As written, the pattern asks for only 8 fat quarters, but I used 9 - one for each row.

The truly amazing thing is, I had all of these fabrics in my stash. So in reality, not all of them were fat quarters - some of it was yardage I had left over from other quilts. I love it when that happens!

Working on this quilt was truly such a joy. The colors just made me so happy every time I went into my sewing room so I took lots of in-progress pictures. From blocks, to rows, to a completed quilt top!

For the quilting, I decided to go with my all-time favorite 3/4" apart straight-line quilting on my Janome 9450. Sometimes I still forget how fast this machine is and this was one of those times. I was expecting to take two afternoons to quilt this beaut, but it only took me one afternoon, whoop whoop! Extra bonus? The backing also came from my stash - I had 4 yards of a blender from Moda and it was the perfect shade of peach for this quilt!

For the binding, I wanted to stick to using my stash only as I did for the rest of the quilt, but I quickly realized I didn't have enough of any one fabric for all the binding. So, I went scrappy using 7 of the 9 colors used on the quilt top and I love the end result!
