I hope you have a wonderful holiday season!! I know it is a busy time of year, but I hope you got to spend a few moments at peace… possibly sewing. Last week I picked out some fabric to make another quilt for a class I will be teaching next quarter at the Quilt Basket. You guessed it! It will be using the Mountain Breeze pattern. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. I always like to try to change the colors dramatically so it looks like something different. Speaking of different, here is the Mountain Breeze Quilt in solids.

The Look

This quilt pattern is one that I love so much!! When I created the Mountain Breeze pattern, I created it with 24 different fabrics, but don’t worry you can trim that down. This is the Mountain Breeze Quilt in solids. The fabrics are all Art Gallery Fabrics from their Pure Solids collection. Art Gallery has a wonderful feel to their fabrics. They are so soft and thin. They offer a beautiful rainbow of fun. This quilt features two gradients. One of pinks, starting from a deep merlot wine to a soft white blush. The other is a gradient of blues ranging from a dark midnight blue to a soft powder blue.

Use 12 Fabrics instead of 24

This quilt uses half the number of fabrics cutting 24 fabrics down to 12 fabrics. Susan Wells created the Mountain Breeze Quilt in solids, and I am so grateful to be able to show it off. Most of these fabrics are from By and By a fabric shop here in Tucson. Don’t you just love it!! If you would like to get a copy of the Mountain Breeze Quilt pattern, click here. It has three sizes and is the perfect quilt for you to play with and to get familiar with the shape and angles of a hexagon. Believe me. You can do this, and if you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them, just send them to edemoo@brownbirddesigns.com.

Now I want to see how the Mountain Breeze Quilt in solids would look with only 6 fabrics. I have a feeling that it would look amazing!! I am totally going to add it to my list of quilts to make. How would you like to see this quilt?? Any favorite color combinations?

I am so excited for 2023!! Happy to be getting out more. Feeling a little less worried about Covid, and I can’t wait to release my next pattern. The first week of the new year, I plan on releasing another design of my Garden Star Quilt Pattern Series. It is going to be cheerful and fun. Just like the new year! Keep on the lookout to ensure you get to take part in the pattern release party.
