Black & White make Gray




While I was quilting all the other smaller quilts, I had this one 'quilted by check'.  It was a larger quilt that would have given me fits and giggles to do - and I think it is just fine to give yourself a little break.  This was a Connection Threads kit that I bought a few years ago on a lovely sale.  I do that to get the yardage very cheaply.  This kit was still in tack, so I decided to do it up as is as grays are a funny color to try and match up with others.  AND I liked the mosiac tile pattern.


A solid gray for the back and had it quilted with a light gray thread front and back.  I chose this 'wobbling meander' from the long armers pantos to help hold all those small pieces. but not to have the quilting take over the lovely tile pattern.


Today is the last day - please be sure to visit:
