    There is another topic on how much grey fabric you have in your stash. Lots of people are saying they don't like grey at all - too depressing.

    Take a look at what a little grey can do in a bright quilt! This is a quilt that I made for my granddaughter at Christmas.

    I love grey! The quilt is really beautiful and you're right, the grey gives it character and draws your eyes in. Good job.

    I like gray also... however your quilt is great, and the gray was the perfect color to pull all that brightness together.

    Wow! I love it! It has a 3D look. I've been looking for gray fabrics myself lately- they are kinda hard to find!

    Gosh, that's a beautiful quilt!

    The gray is really effective. The current quilt I'm working on features gray. I'll post a pic when I'm done. Hope it looks as nice as yours...... :mrgreen:

    I was told that Gray makes color sing.
    Also can you think of any color that doesn't go with gray?
    Your quilt is lovely.

    I like gray. Your quilt is beautiful. A lot of the design shows on HGTV on decorating with gray and yellow> Say it's the new blue and yellow.

    that looks real good... you obviously know what you're doing. i doubt i would have thought to use the grey. just another example of why QB is soooo helpful and fun. thanks for sharing.

    I like gray - some shades of gray. Some can be very pretty, and others can look rather dead and depressing. But I like the ones that are brighter and have a little bit of color, if you know what I mean. Does that make sense? The same with greens.

    Love your quilt. I only used grey in the first quilt I ever tried to make. I haven't boughten much grey since. However it is really a great accent fabric.

    the quilt looks great.

    i must have missed that topic because i love grey. i use it often with red, purple, and yellow.

    its just another neutral to me and i prefer it over black
