    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.

    Periwinkle is so hard to find and when you do it's always a little bit off from the other pieces in the stash. But you managed to pull it off, simple but cute, and your right that backing gave it just the right kick! Well done!

    Lovely, relaxing quilt. The back is as pretty and relaxing as the front.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Perfect backing for that quilt. The gentle quilts are the kind you can relax with and sleep under. I make bright quilts but not for my bed.
