a gentle quilt
2 Attachment(s)
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. :)

LOVE your floors!

leatheflea 10-26-2017 10:35 AM

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.

jokir44 10-26-2017 11:04 AM

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.

Nice quilt. Your quilt inspector is precious.

That is a very pretty quilt both front and back with a pretty kitty on it.

Thanks for the sweet words, everyone. My quilt inspector and I appreciate them. :)

Hot Rod says "Hi" back, Angelia. He is always impressed that you remember his name. :)

That's so easy on the eyes. Periwinkle is my favorite color. But oh how hard to find. I think if I ever find the perfect periwinkle, I will buy many yards, even w/o a pattern in mind.

SusieQOH 10-26-2017 07:03 PM

Oh that's pretty! So is kitty :)

watson's mom 10-26-2017 07:24 PM

Very nice quilt and I like the colours. The quilt inspector ain't half bad either. LOL, he's very cute. Thank you for sharing.

Jingle 10-26-2017 07:41 PM

Very pretty quilt. Your colors are so soothing and calming.

Watson 10-27-2017 03:52 AM

Very pretty and it looks so nice and soft. Like you want to snuggle up under it.


twinkie 10-27-2017 04:51 AM

Love the layout.

MamaLinda 10-27-2017 05:22 AM

Very pretty. The quilt "holder" is sweet too.

Pretty quilt...very soothing colors and great pattern for your fabrics.

'Gentle' is a very good description.

Innov8R 10-27-2017 08:43 AM

I love the front and the back. Not everything has to be bold and flashy and your quilt proves it.
