A Neutral Quilt

It's rare (like never) for me to make a neutral colored quilt. But I did want to try one and made this the end of last Summer. I just got it back from the quilter, got the binding on and done!The fabrics are mostly neutrals from several Anna Griffin lines with a taupey gray Moda Bella solid for the star points.
Now back to some color! I finished the machine quilting on my Dresden Plate quilt. Next I'm going to try some hand quilting with Perle Cotton in the center circles. I'm hoping that's the perfect final touch!

  4. I think that some perle cotton hand quilting will be just the ticket!

  5. I adore colour too but change they say is as good as a rest! Your neutral quilt is fab - it has variety of its own. The Dresden Plate quilt is adorable and will look great with the cotton perle - will it be a contrast or a complimentary colour(s)?

  6. I love the way you quilted the "Plate" on the Dresden. Would never have thought of doing something like that, beautiful.
