MD Gallery: Vanessa Christenson of V and CO

Is it spring already? These bright and colorful quilts are having us dreaming of sunny days! Quilter and pattern designer, Vanessa Christenson created these quilts using her ombre fabric collection. This refreshing collection of quilts is on display in our studio through the end of the month!

Vanessa’s quilt patterns create the allusion of a rainbow of solids. However, if you look closely the primary fabric used in these quilts is a variety of printed ombre shades. The variation of colors creates a striking contrast with bright white backgrounds and playful piecing.

This modern hexagon quilt was made and designed by Nicole of Modern Handcraft. She provides a great tutorial on her website to create this quilt!

“There are a total of 340 hexagons on this project – 17 hexies in each colorway. I used my Modern Hexies method of applying them to the backing fabric and then quilting from corner to corner.”
