Gradient Quilt Pattern - a Lap in Watercolors

Gradient Quilt Pattern - a Lap in Watercolors

You know how much I love spoiling you with new quilt designs!  While it has been a busy year with caring for my parents and other family members, and now another house move on the horizon, I always make time to keep on designing which I love so much!  

I'm so happy to introduce you to the Gradient quilt pattern - a modern design that creates a stunning ombre effect using a total of 7 fabrics.  Includes 6 fun sizes - Baby, Lap, Throw, Twin, Queen, and King.

The Gradient quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.

Meet Gradient, Our Radiant New Quilt Pattern!

This Gradient quilt was made in the Lap size, which measures about 51" x 66".  You will find yourself turning to this pattern from time to time for its timeless beauty.  The pattern incorporates a stunning stream of colors interchanging from corner to corner.

Quilt Kits Available!

Yes that's right, this Gradient quilt is available as a quilt kit in these exact fabrics!  The quilt kit is for the throw size and includes all fabrics for the quilt top, binding, and the quilt pattern.  Batting, backing, and thread are not included.  Contact me ASAP if you'd like a different size of quilt kit, and I'll see if I have the fabric to curate one for you.  

P.S. The quilt shown is the Lap size, and the quilt kits are the Throw size.



Includes 6 Sizes

The Gradient quilt pattern is available in 6 gorgeous sizes.  Gradient uses subtle hue changes to create an ombre effect diagonally across the quilt top.  Make each colorway a single fabric or use a variety of prints in 7 colorways.  You can't go wrong!

Oh, What Glorious Fabrics!

The fabrics used in this quilt are an assortment of purples and blues in Mixed Watercolor Texture from the Color Stories by Stephanie Ryan Collection for P & B Textiles.  The sashing is solid white, and the setting triangles and border are solid navy.

Doesn't this quilt just make you want to cozy up in it, or hang it on the wall?!  This quilt will definitely be loved in our new home.  :)

Longarm Machine Quilting

This Gradient quilt is quilted using the Double Bubble #2 digital design by Patricia Ritter, purchased at Urban Elementz, and quilted on my Handi Quilter Fusion with Pro Stitcher in navy thread.  I love the  movement of the bubbly bubbles floating across the quilt!
