A few years ago I went through a year long class. For graduation, I made my 3 classmates and teacher each a quilt. I love the Wizard of Oz one since I felt like it symbolized our journey.
For the ombre quilt, it was Karen Combs / Blank quilting fabric where there were 4 shades on each piece of fabric (so there are only 3 pieces of fabric used in the quilt). With the extra, I reversed it so it went light to dark, added a little from other colors and made it a buddy quilt. This one ended up getting donated.
