2021 Quilt Challenge

Ombre Fabric

MPS 2021 Ombre Quilt Challenge

Ombre FarbidOmbre is a French word meaning shaded or graduated tone.  Ombre may have more than one color, and it might be hand-dyed, printed, metallic, or a batik.

The quilt size was to be 20″ x 20″ and we had the option to add one additional piece of another fabric to our quilt top.  The quilt backing and binding were to be made with the Ombre fabric only in order to see and appreciate the Ombre that was chosen as a whole before it was cut up for piecing.

The rest of the challenge was wide open.   The style of the quilt could be traditional, art, or modern. It could be pieced by machine or hand, foundation pieced, paper pieced, fused, or appliqued.  We could quilt it how ever we liked.  Any design was allowed as long as the quilt was 20 x 20 inches and made with an Ombre fabric and only one other piece of optional fabric.  The quilts were revealed at our November 23rd, 2021 Guild meeting.
