Ombre quilt

This quilt was finished...and gifted...last October but I haven't posted about it yet.  I've given myself some grace about it and will slowly get caught up with everything.

Anyway, the Ombre quilt.  I love this one.

It started with an ombre piece of fabric that I picked up at an AQS quilt show several years ago.  I try to not get fabric unless I have a purpose for it, but this was one piece where that didn't work.  I finally realized that if I cut a square of fabric into quarter triangles, I could use the top and bottom for one hourglass square and the sides for the other hourglass square and keep the color graduation intact.

Needless to say, I was rather sick of sewing hourglasses by the time this was done, but it was worth it.

I wanted a rather fast quilting motif, along with one that wouldn't distract from the piecing.  So I did wiggly lines down the center of each row.

As normal, the back is a minky and it is bound in sateen.

Linking up with Finish it up Friday...even if all I did was finish the blog post. :)


  1. Congratulations on your finish! It must have been tedious, and the result is fabulous.

  2. Wow!! Great used of a single piece of fabric!

  3. Very pretty, love the ombre effect that you accomplished with the fabric. TFS!


Thanks for commenting...I love seeing what you have to say!
