In reality I'm not ;-)
In my head I think I would like to live in an all white house, spending my days making monochromatic quilts.
In reality our dining room is red and another room is a smouldering green.
I admire hugely others who can achieve this, as my natural inclination is to add in every colour going and some.
So, this is my small attempt at a limited colour palette quilt.
I took the same fabric for each square and started off by adding either a grey or a white narrow border.
I kept adding rows completely randomly until I squared each block to 12".
I struggled to keep it muted. I had to start adding little pops of yellow and mustard because it was looking just too controlled for my taste.
With all blocks sewn together, I added a simple backing.
And then got to my favourite bit of the whole process...hand-quilting the life out of it.
I enjoyed making it but I feel an injection of colour coming on in my next quilt.
