    Ombre is another word for "graduated"....

    I bought a tone of them from Sew batiks....can't wait to see what I do with them!

    Thanks to all of you, I now know that Ombre means a shaded fabric and umber means tan. Plus, I shouldn't be afraid to use ombre fabric in a quilt although it may cost a bit more. You all are a great source of knowledge and thanks to all of you who post here. This is a great resource and I learn so much from it.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    I would think Ombres would be an ideal choice for 3D effect quilts like Karen Comb's quilts of illusion patterns.

    I LOVE Ombre fabrics (I like the one Caryl Bryer Fallert makes for Bernatex)
    But I really have no idea how to use them. I think they do work really well for art quilting (see Fallert's work!), but with piecing I don't really know the best way to make use of the gradation.

    Oh those are yummy!! I have some ombre -- bought it after seeing a Sewing With Nancy show about working with ombre. I have not used them as yet, but I am thinking hard about a pattern.
