Today I am sharing one of the new size quilts you can create using the Ranges quilt pattern! The smaller template that is included now allows you to make a pillow pair and a crib size. This crib quilt in particular is special because it was created using my new Palette Picks Bundle for Robert Kaufman Fabrics - a fun collection of Kona solids and Essex linen fabrics.
Ranges is an updated version of my original quilt pattern, Range. Ranges can mean a mountain range in the distance or a range of complimentary colors. Ranges has two template sizes to create multiple size projects.
If you currently have the original Range pattern you can check out this post to see the layouts for the larger bed sizes, you can use those layouts along with your original pattern and template to create larger bedsize quilts.
The smaller template and layouts are in the new Ranges pattern only.
- Pillow Pair (2) 19" x 19"
- Crib 40" x 40"
- Throw 64" x 78"
- Twin 72" x 90"
- Bed 88" x 90"
- King 104" x 105"
The crib sized quilt requires 8 fat quarters to create the quilt top, a bit more if you are using a directional fabric.
I was excited to use fat quarters from my new Palette Picks bundle for Robert Kaufman for this particular project. My bundle has a mix of Kona solids and Essex linens, giving the quilt top a great texture!

The quilt is a pretty fast one to cut out and is a fun one to quickly sew together.
For this quilt I decided to change my thread color by section, and use my walking foot as a guide - echoing the lines around the color changes.
Finished Quilt Images:
I tried to get some images in different locations so you can get an idea on how the colors of the fabric look. Here are some taken in my studio down in my basement.
Photos taken in my living room near a large window with natural light.
Photos taken outside, as you can tell our weather here in Indiana is a bit rainy and dreary this time of year.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I am so excited to see your own Ranges projects come to life!
P.s. Printed versions of the Ranges quilt will be here soon - stay tuned!
