Ombre Olé...


One of the advantages of having a niche passion by mainstream standards is that friends and family tend to give me textile-related gift certificates for Christmas and my January birthday. Am so excited that these beauties arrived guilt free today:) They are the Ombre solids from VandCo. The colour gradient in each hue from light to dark makes the eye bounce around in the most delightful way. They are a super alternative to conventional solids with greater visual texture and a depth that looks like sueded silk but is as smooth as conventional cotton. I can see them in many kinds of quilts- modern ones but also traditional applique with lots of shaded flowers and in apparel too. Not sure what they will become but am enjoying petting them lovingly...
