Glimmer Glow


About this Quilt

quilt-glimmer-glow-flatOmbre, metallics and dots, oh my! Simple piecing sparkles and shines thanks to gorgeous fabrics and specific color placement. This design takes full advantage of precut 2½” strips with selvage-to-selvage ombre prints, set off by strips of tone-on-tone dots. The construction of this quilt is super simple; the trickiest part is keeping track of color placement. A vertical design wall is extremely helpful for keeping strips and units organized as you sew.

Stitch & Flip is a valuable and versatile technique to have in your sewing repertoire. Using the technique with strips rather than squares increases your skills and design possibilities exponentially. There are just a few differences to keep in mind while incorporating strips in this technique. Our pattern walks you through this easy, though valuable skill, so you can make this pattern as well as incorporate it into your own designs.

With such simple construction and precut strips, this quilt really comes together quickly, and the spectacular results belie the ease of construction. It’s all thanks to the way the colors and prints are arranged. The gorgeous ombre fabrics from Moda really make this design glow, a kit is available if you’d like to recreate the look exactly.
