About this Product
Green pear gradient of hand dyed quilt cotton. This green lands between lime and olive, on the yellow green scale. It is wonderful with purples and blue violets. The blended colors and high texture make it suitable for multiple quilting projects, from applique and piecing to modern quilts and art quilts. Fabric has a thread count of approximately 76-78 and is suitable for hand embroidery as well as machine quilting. Fabric is fusible ready.
Each piece is unique but the photo shows the range of colors you can expect.
Half yard is approximately 21x36 inches, with the length running down the selvage.
Fabric is 100% cotton, similar to batik weight.
Each piece of fabric has been dyed with my own recipe of Procion MX dyes, and washed according to the manufacturer's instructions. After multiple hot washes to remove the excess dye, each piece is steam ironed on white muslin to check for color fastness under normal piecing or fusing conditions. Cold wash recommended. Use of a color catcher is advised if using a hot wash.
Fabric is ready to ship in 1-3 business days.
COLOR NAME: PEAR GREEN OMBRE
Meet the Maker
My passion for color and quilting gave rise to Color Connexion, home of 100% cotton hand dyed fabric, suitable for quilting and crafting. I spend far too much time playing with fabric and dye, and too little time quilting, but it's a good problem to have! Retired from the rat race, I now hang out with the rainbow daily. My fabrics mostly find their way into quilts, but they have also been used for cosplay costumes, dance costumes, and sculptures! I am always amazed by the fabulous and creative ways people use my fabric!
My regular offerings are ombre cotton gradients in a range of values of the same color. These are perfect for bargello and modern quilt projects, as well as piecing and applique. In my Colorwash gradients I let colors out to play together; they blend, swirl and make new secondary colors. These work well in a wide range of applications as each piece has multiple color ranges. Stash packs offer unique sets of coordinating fabrics. I also offer small packs for applique projects. When I have time I make arashi shibori and ice dyed fabric, as well as tie dyed fat quarters.

All fabrics are dyed with Procion MX dyes because these dyes bond with the fabric, unlike fabric paints. Fabric looks vibrant year after year. Fabric goes through multiple hot washes to remove unbonded dye so fabric is colorfast in cold water. Fabric comes to you preshrunk and ready to accept any iron on interfacing, without the interference of finishes or sizing. To avoid triggering those with allergies, fabric has no scent and I use wool dryer balls, not dryer sheets.
How it’s Made
Fabric is 100% cotton. It is dyed with Procion MX dyes, which give excellent permanent color. Fabric is hand dyed in low water immersion dyebaths, which creates a random texture on the fabric with lighter and darker areas of the particular color.
* Orders can take up to 2 weeks to process as stepped gradients are dyed to order. Stash packs and colorwash gradients ship within a week.
* No rush orders. I want your fabric to be colorfast and so do you! That takes time.
* All shipping is via USPS.
* If you have an issue with an order please contact me so we can reach a mutually satisfactory resolution.
* Reviews are very helpful to online sellers, so if you could take time to leave a review that would be much appreciated.
1. Does the fabric fade?
I use Procion MX dyes which bond with the fabric and are color fast. However, all fabric will fade if constantly exposed to direct sunlight.
2. How do I wash hand dyed fabric?
Your fabric is preshrunk due to the multiple hot washes it has gone through to remove the excess dye. Fabric is color fast in a cold wash. If you use hot water, a Colorcatcher is recommended.
3. Do you offer discounts?

4. Is your studio a smoke free zone?
5. Do you have pets?
I have 2 furry overlords.
6. Do you use scented detergent?
I am aware that some people have allergies. I do not use scented detergents, or fabric softener sheets on my hand dyed fabric. Fabric is washed in Dawn dishwashing soap and I use wool dryer balls.
7. Do you make all the fabric yourself?
I do, and I have the callouses to prove it...
8. Do you do custom orders?
I do. I am happy to work with customers to try to bring their vision to life!
9. Why do I have to wait 2 weeks for some of your fabric?
Color wash gradients, stash packs and ice dyes are listed when they are already made, and will ship within 2-5 business days. Stepped gradients are dyed to order because I offer a wide range of colors and cannot keep them all in stock. Unfortunately there is no magic wand for the dyeing process. Once the dye has been applied, fabric must sit for 24 hours to allow the dye to bond chemically with the fabric. Then begins the first of many wash outs, including an overnight soak. To keep my sanity and my body intact, there is a 2 week production time on all gradient bundles. If fabric is in stock it will ship sooner. If you have a deadline, let me know upfront and I can tell you what the time line will be for your order.
