Falling Leaves Quilt

I have said it before publicly and I will say it again publicly (and probably again and again and again), but V and Co Ombre fabric is MAGIC. It is literally magical fabric. I just looooooove how it acts like so many different solids all together in one piece of fabric. The way it plays together as blocks are made is just so much fun. Vanessa is a genius and I love her for making ombre fabric a reality for us all. The minute I saw this newer quilt release by Vanessa of V and Co., I just had to make it. This hasn’t happened to me in a loooong time, so I decided to go for it. I had some Robert Kauffman Essex Linen in Black in my stash as well as some ombre fat quarters. I modified Vanessa’s pattern to use more colors than listed and cut them from my fat quarters. I am so pleased that it worked out, AND pleased that I got to add in both shades of pink ombre. I don’t know that I’ve actually ever seen a pink leaf, but I sure do wish I could!

I had Rhonda from Olie and Evie quilt this up in such a fun, modern design that works so well in all of the negative space. I didn’t have a “fall” quilt before now, but this one will be displayed in my home during Fall for years and years to come. I kind of hope my boys fight over it when I’m gone because it is that much a part of their childhood.
