Ombre fabrics fade from light to dark over a length of the fabric or alternatively provide a rainbow of colors. Since we usually work with small fabric swatches in Electric Quilt (which allows for a smaller project size), we need to make some adjustments when working with a piece of fabric which has no "repeat" across the entire width of the fabric.
WARNING: You will find you need a lot of patience when rotating and fussy cutting the ombre fabric on the quilt worktable. When working with these large fabric swatches, you may note that the fabric wants to jump when the repeat is close to the edge of a patch. That is why we include two different rotations of the fabric in the project sketchbook. When one didn't work, I switched to the other fabric. You will probably need to do the same.
Since my project looked boring with just the ombre fabric, I added information on creating a posie wreath to overlay on our ombre block.
Here are the blocks created in the video.
Here is my quilt.
