Grey/Grey

Two of the participants in the April AHIQ link up, Mary and Sophie, had some very nice tone-on-tone piecing in their projects. Since my new improv project, 9+, has 5 shades of grey, I was able to use the idea right away!

Isn't that light grey print beautiful? It looks like a rich, grey wool flannel. It's one of the Faux Linens that Connecting Threads had a couple years ago. The dark corners are their Faux Burlap, which is fun too.


All the blocks are now finished. Next time...flimsy!

  1. I was never a grey person but it has grown on me recently and have now added some to my stash. These blocks look great

  3. What wonderful fabrics. Love the printing that makes them look like burlap or woolen. At one time I had a plaid that looked like wool. It makes people look twice.
    This layout is beautiful in both green/grey and grey tones. Good for you!

  4. The texture is really interesting. I don't imagine it would show up as it does in colours. The shapes, texture and tones play really well.

    1. Yes, it is definitely meant to be a more subtle section. I am just thinking now that I will have to be careful that the quilting plan doesn't overshadow it...

      Thanks, Jillian!

  5. Love the faux texture on the fabrics. The subtle shades of grey create an interesting design.

  6. Wow that was a fast bit of piecing! I like what you did! If you use a grey thread to quilt it, you will have the subtle theme continue and have a bit of texture to enhance the modern style piecing.

    1. Thanks, Terry! Faster than you think, because the flimsy is finished! I was thinking of green for the quilting thread, but grey is definitely a consideration too. I don't want to overpower the grey blocks!
