Showing at Quilt Market in Houston OCT 25-28 2019
Hi Quilters and Makers!! Hope you are well and getting your workspaces cleaned up to start making! SKY Collection, my line of full range of artful, ombré fabrics AND the book OMBRÉ QUILTS that uses ALL SKY fabrics is FINALLY shipping worldwide, now! I am so excited to share this first time accomplishment of giving you a book with gorgeous and approachable projects that you can make with the exact same fabric as I have done in the book. Plus shops have the potential to teach and kit many of the projects in this book, or do block of the month, and delve into the magic of OMBRÉS. (Robert Kaufman manufactures my fabrics and C&T Publishing prints my books and patterns.)
All 30 SKY fabrics are shown above. Some ombres are more dramatic than others, some pale to dark, others dark to even darker....And they all reflect what we see in the sunsets, sunrises and various weather through out the year. Below is all 6 projects from the book. You begin with two very easy projects: Madras Table Topper and Yellow Bars Quilt. Both great beginner concepts that I also support with a YouTube video to help you learn more about value, hue and cutting up these Beauties! IF you are at Quilt Market and part of the trade, please stop by my booth this weekend or come to my schoolhouses- more information is on my Instagram and quilt market programming.
Below are just a couple of more details from the book and shows a piece of the fabric and how it really captures the mood of light, sky and water. I hope you are inspired to get some SKY and OMBRÉ QUILTS book and see what you come up with. I will be doing a book and fabric tour beginning here in Houston, then onto Australia for most of November, Napa in January, a few guilds in March and May, Sisters Quilters Affair in July in Oregon, then also have an exciting 5 day workshop lined up with Madeleine Island School for the Arts coming in October 2020 where we are delving deep into using ombres and unleashing the potential and magic. Stay tuned and thanks for reading up on what’s new. Until next time! Stay Creative!! Xx Jennifer
