Holding back on the colour

Neutrals? Not something I usually spend a lot of time with but they have gradually been creeping their way into my stash. You may recognize these text prints by Art Gallery and Moda.


Some Carolyn Friedlander graphics, QuiltCon booty and treasure from my road trip.


Dashwood Flurry and a P&B


Cotton and Steel prints – I SOooooo want to add the green, but it’s not going to fit.


These Red Rooster and Dear Stella scraps work perfectly.


So I’ve just been enjoying playing with not a lot of colour. This palette is looking rather delicate for me don’t you think?


It’s quite relaxing and I seem to have made quite a lot. Maybe I’ll make a quilt out them sometime!

    Neutrals can be so nice and restful on the eyes. I went through a ‘grey’ patch recently and I’m not sure I’m out of it quite yet.

      I love grey too, usually darker though. It’s difficult to describe this putty/clay not beige, going green, vein I’ve got myself into!

    I love the gentle colours, must remember and learn! Don’t think I can manage Kent this summer but might be able to go to Birmingham.

    Ah, from the lady who has green down to a tee, I’m learning from you Ilse. If you’re at Birmingham we must catch up x

    I do like low value quilts they are so restful.

    Low value text prints are on my shopping list for my first visit to Birmingham this year – trying to be very frugal in the meantime!!
