Default a gentle quilt

I had some fabric that I really liked, a periwinkle color with sweet daisies on it. I couldn't find any fabric I really liked it with, so I ended up just selecting white and a lighter lilac. I used the pattern Square within Square 2 from quilterscache.com. I ended up deciding the top was just a bit too dull, so I put a back on it that was a bit more interesting.

When it was all done, I decided I really like the front And the back. The colors photograph a bit off, but you can get the general idea. The periwinkle fabric is warmer than it looks.

Thanks for looking.

I like "gentle" quilts. Yours is very pretty. The backing fabric is perfect for it.

I love your gentle quilt. Both sides look great. Purples are my favorite colors. Well done.

No, those are small daisies. I would have liked bluebonnets too though.
