Friday Fabric: ombre fun with Michael Miller fabrics

LPQ53 Think Pink quilt

What’s your colour crush? We’re feeling rosy with pink hues thanks to Lou Orth’s tone-on-tone mini quilt in issue 53. Give it a go and nail the trend for all things ombre! Inside the issue we’ll talk you through how to cleverly combine half square triangles in gently variating solid tones of the same colour – then add extra texture with vertical line quilting to add graphic appeal.

Sponsored postLou’s picked out some of her fave pinks from theMichael Miller Cotton Couture collection (available from EQS) for her mini quilt. They have an incredible range of shades to choose from, so whether you’re looking to showcase your current colour crush with tonal solids like Lou has, or to pick out the perfect match for your next-project print, you’re sure to find what you need in the collection.

Lou chose eight different pink fabrics for her quilt – we can’t decide which we love best!

Our friends over at EQS have sponsored the project and provided us with these lovely fabrics. They distribute all kinds of quilty supplies across the UK that we just couldn’t be without! To find your nearest stockist, visit
