OMBRE! - It's My Birthday!!!

Ombre! It sounds like a word of celebration! As a noun, according to the Meriam Webster dictionary, ombre is an old three-handed card game popular in Europe especially in the 17th and 18th centuries. As an adjective, however, ombre is defined as having colors or tones that shade into each other - used especially for fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

The recent trend in quilting has incorporated the use of ombre fabrics. Here are some of our favorites!

Yipes! Stripes!


This Ombre Chevrons design can be achieved using our free tutorial for half square triangles and ombre fabric.
