Many of the stash builder bundles that I bought over the past two years include a grey print and over time I accumulated quite a few. My idea was to make a quilt in soft, light greys but as you can see from the images that plan went to pot (quite literally).
You see my favorite uncle is turning 60 and it occurred to me the other day that he deserves to have a quilt. Heinrich is the youngest brother of my father and about 20 years younger than his oldest sister. And he is only 15 years older than me. So us kids always had a great relationship with him.
I am using mainly strong manly greys with a few just soft tones here and there. The quilt will comprise 20 plus fabrics in varying shades of grey. There is soft grey, green-grey, brown-grey (yes !), blue-grey, anthracite and a bit of black and most of the fabrics have some white incorporated too.
There are 3 diffrent pearl bracelet tones in the bundle I compiled, some large and small dots, the 'Dem Bones' fat quarter package from my last stash note, Madrona Road in grey/black, Falala from French General in brown, chevron, quite a few Japanese text prints and some Alexander Henry Heath in a dark grey.
I probably will add one or two solids for good measure too.
So let the cutting begin !
