I've always been intrigued with monochromatic quilts that have a splash of color. I decided to see what I could make.
This is the quilt I've designed. He measures 42" by 45" and was straight line quilted on my Elna 720 sewing machine.
You can barely see the one gray flying geese that is very close to the background fabric. You can tell the difference in this picture.
I didn't have enough of the gray for backing. This piece of beige was laying there so I decided to use it. It rather blends in being blah itself. To make it wider, I used the extra flying geese segments.
I do wish now I would have off set the backing geese but oh well, it's finished!
This isn't my usual style of quilt but I had a lot of fun! I guess I do have a modern quilt gene lurking inside of me somewhere.
Right now this is hanging over the door into my sewing room but it could also be used as a crib quilt.
Here are more pictures just for fun.
