Ombre weave quilt

I love ombre fabrics! They offer a huge opportunity for pairing with other fabrics. This particular fabric has a lovely combination of colours. One selvedge edge is dyed with a deep burgundy colour that changes across the width to a soft pearly pink on the opposite selvedge.

I chose to pair the ombre fabric with a Kaffe Fasset print. The print was going to be “woven” into the ombre fabric.

The quilt has rows of ombre fabric stitched together. These rows alternate from light to dark. I love the bargello effect created where the colours from the central portion of the ombre align.

The Kaffe Fassett fabric creates a woven effect.

The left over squares were pieced into the back of the quilt.

I am really happy with the results and so is the recipient. How have you used ombre fabric?
