A few weeks ago I was in one of my local quilt shops
and saw this new fabric.
On the edge of the bolts it was okay,
but the sales clerk suggested I unroll a bit of the fabric.
Opening the fabric totally changed the look of the fabric.
It was ombre and went from light to dark,
all on the same bolt.
I quickly bought 1/8 of a yard of 8 colorways
and began to think about what to make.
I could cut a 4 1/2" strip from what I purchased
and then subcut those strips into 2 1/2" rectangles.
After pairing each rectangle with a white rectangle,
this is what I have.
The colors go from light to dark as the pieces
go from top to bottom.
Here is a close-up of the blues.
It went from light to dark from side to side on the bolt.
The colors are bright and deep and fun!
There were a couple of other colorways of the Ombre fabrics
that I didn't purchase.
I've already thought of a quilt to make using the
gray to black and yellow to orange colorways.
I need to finish the corners
and then the challenge of finding some border fabrics begins.
Maybe a black and white print?
This will be a bright and colorful baby quilt!
