    Simple 2 color quilt

    Finally got this done! Simple 2 color dusty blue and grey made from Kaufman Essex Linen fabric, with soft and bright batting, made for a male family member. It has a bit of heft to it and I liked how it turned out, perhaps not the best quilting choice but I wanted to get it done, so in the interest of finished is better than perfect.......Oversized queen at 96x108, thanks for looking!

    I am of the finished is better than perfect group a lot of the time....and if it is going to be used, just so it is quilted. This is so graphic, any guy would like it.

    I love your quilt. It’s very bold and dramatic. Is the pattern as simple as it appears - just alternate 4- patches and large HSTs?

    Wonderful quilt.

    If "Beauty is in the mind of the beholder" does that apply to quilting too? I think so. I like simple quilting to enhance a quilt and not overpower it. Too much quilting flattens a quilt and this looks puffy and inviting. I think I'm ready for a nap!!

    Great finish. I’ve not done a two color quilt yet...but your pattern lends itself perfectly.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Beautiful quilt and perfect quilting. Over quilting is pretty to look at but not comfortable to snuggle up under.
