2020 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, so don’t limit yourself.  It might be hand-dyed, printed, metallic, or a batik.

The quilt size is to be 20″ x 20″.  If you like, you may add one additional piece of another fabric to your quilt top.  The quilt backing and binding are to be made with the Ombre fabric only.  That way, we will be able to see and appreciate the Ombre you chose as a whole before it was cut up for piecing.

The rest of the challenge is wide open.   The style of the quilt can be traditional, art, or modern. You can piece by machine or hand, foundation piece, paper piece, fuse, or applique.  You can quilt it how ever you like.  Any design is allowed as long as the quilt is 20 x 20 inches and made with an Ombre fabric and only one other piece of optional fabric.  The quilts will be revealed at our November 23rd, 2021 Guild meeting.

The purpose of this challenge is to let your imaginations fly, play with fabric and to have fun in the process. 

Our 2020 MPS Quilt Challenge was a great success.  You can view our 2020 challenge quilts by clicking the button below.
