Question to the Gradient tool

Hello Gimp fellows,
a few days ago I was working on an simple image of just two layers. I wanted an overblend effect so one layer fades into the other. I thought the gradient tool would be the perfect solution for this task but all I did found was the "FG to Transparent" gradient. Is there any way to do this quickly without going the long way of creating a layer mask?
Best wishes,Sascha Zosgornik

The upper layer must have an alpha channel (transparency).

Use rectangle select, feather the selection a lot (e.g. 500 pixels), cut.

But the layer mask way is better because you can go back and change it.

You can so the same with a gradient on the Quickmask. But then t gets pretty close to using a layer mask
