neutral quilt

this is a true neutrals quilt. it is beige, black, gray, and creams. it was made by jean w and measures 70" square. i did a light custom on it. i liked the way the stripe fabric is used in the setting, so i just SID all the stripes, including the border. this is the quilt that i had on the frame that i was doing this in the border, so i took that design and tweaked it to fit in the corners of the star blocks.

i think it looks better on the back. it has a wholecloth feel to it. the backing was pieced from all the scraps left from the top, but i would of wished for a solid black. there was a small piece of a tone-on-tone black, so i photoed it. see that new border design...i think i found a new staple in my group of go-to designs....

also, see how i adapted it to go in the corners of the pieced blocks? i'll admit, i'm proud of that creative spark.
