A while ago, I decided that I needed to remake the Omni Quilt Pattern in a sweet, scrappy, and feminine rendition. The original uses black, a color I rarely use, and to show a completely different side of this pattern, I wanted pinks. Pastels. Feminine wispiness. Autocorrect is actually recognizing wispiness as a word. I'm going with it.
I made these blocks one at a time, pulling from a stack of aqua and peach stash and scraps. Casually attempting to match the Brambleberry Ridge print from Violet Craft.
Taking the time to enjoy the process. Even the binding is scrappy.
Here's what I love about this quilt:
- Using scraps and stash. Blending fabric lines - both prints and solids.
- Each block becomes unique.
- The airy feel that so starkly contrasts the original Omni.
My favorite block is the large center block.
