Blue ombre background 2018

Today I have a quick Ombre Heart quilt block tutorial for you!  It’s a great stash buster and I love the color gradations in this heart block.

The ombre heart quilt block finishes at 6″ square.  I added 1 1/2″ (unfinished) borders to the block which makes it 8″ finished.

Here’s what you need to cut for one block (without borders):

  • Background:  (4) 1 1/2″ squares and (2) 3 1/2″ squares
  • Darkest fabric:  (2) 1 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ rectangles
  • (5) 1 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ rectangles in light to dark color gradations

Use your imagination to create all kinds of projects with this ombre heart.  I can imagine a rainbow of different ombre hearts in one quilt.

The project that started it all for me was this little wall hanging (still unquilted).  I used a neutral color scheme with a red accent.  The alternating square-in-a-square blocks created a space for some embroidery.  The quilt measures 18 1/2″ square.
