[QUOTE=Gannyrosie;6958885]I'm starting to like grey to when matched with bright colors.

I agree, I think the other brighter colors is what makes the gray so effective. Love this.

Gray is my least used color in my quilts... but I am loving what you have done. Maybe I should be rethinking my favorite "go to" colors.

Love it. I am beginning to see a lot more gray in quilts. I'm not a real fan of that color but sometimes it just works.

I really like that! The gray is a great addition and makes the brighter colors pop!

I like it. I may have to use more gray myself.

You know, you're right. Gray is hardly ever used. I have nothing against it - I own gray clothes - but would never think to use it in a quilt. I'm so glad you did. It looks wonderful. It goes so well with the other fabrics. Now that I'm looking at the picture again, I'm trying to think of what other color would look as good and I'm coming up empty!

I love the gray. It makes you want to just keep looking at the quilt! Very soothing and peaceful to the eye. I think it's lovely.
I have an Anita Arrowhead under way cutting and have some of the blocks make. It has gray in it...
