Omni - NEW Quilt Pattern Flash Sale

I've been hard at work to bring you a new quilt pattern - Omni.  Omni pushes me outside my comfort zone by designing in black and white.  It's always good to push yourself, right? Omni is a dazzling sprinkle of stars, based on Aunt Mary's block from 1906.  I used the Gradiance line from Maywood Studio for this quilt, and I just couldn't help myself to add that little splash of yellow into these stars.  That POP of color makes the stars sparkle.

I took this quilt to my husband's grandfather's home. I had 2 quilts to photograph on his property (Omni and Gatekeeper).  It's beautiful old red farmhouse set deep in the woods in Michigan.  Spring was just starting to appear when I took these shots. 
 
The quilt uses black and white solids in the stars, with a yellow accent color.  The background is a beautiful lacey grey floral.  It's very soft and sweet.  The only other print used in this quilt is for the large center star.  Sometimes I really enjoy keeping things simple, using such a basic color palette.  It allows you to appreciate the form of the quilt block.
 I have more plans for Omni.  :)  I'd like to try making her again with some bright colors, perhaps a little scrappy to see how it changes her attitude.  I love how each quilt takes on it's own personality with the design and fabric selection.  Stay on the lookout for it later this year.
