This week is another week of focus on Gradients and the first one I have to share is this new one called Leafy. I wanted to design a green gradient that has lots of texture. Just one half yard of this would give you dozens of different color and texture combinations for applique foliage. It would also be a nice background for an art quilt or borders for a bright green full size quilt. I love using gradients for borders. Usually two lengths on each side is enough and bookmatching the pieces with either all light or all dark in the center makes a great effect for very little effort. You can see this effect on my Summer Sunset quilt. The gray-tone gradients below would also be wonderful for borders.

Just in time for any Halloween-themed spooky projects, I've restocked the Black and San Francisco gradients.
Joanna Mack used the San Francisco Gradient in her art quilt Letting Go.
Gradient patterns run across the width of the fabric and are sold by the half yard. When ordering more than one quantity you will receive it as one uncut piece. For example, order a quantity of 3 and you receive a 1.5 yard cut, not 3 separate half yards.
