Sunday Quilt Inspiration: N E U T R A L S

In the midst of making an all neutrals baby quilt for a friend, I thought I'd share some of my inspiration ideas.

Yes, please.  And the porch and porch swing, too!

Probably wouldn't think of keeping your paint swatches somewhere for when it comes time to do a touch up!

Beautiful neutral quilt with ecru crochet edging. I love the neutrals, but I would love to see more intricate quilting on it.

And to close it all out, the Alex Anderson quilt that started my infatuation with making a neutral quilt.  Doesn't it look difficult? It's not so impossible if you see the 16-patch and the alternating pinwheel patches.  Of course, Alex tossed in a few 9-patches with a large center just to mix it up a bit.

She may have all three switching out in a definite pattern, but I can't tell for certain.  Regardless, it's a beautiful quilt, and I wonder how long it took to gather enough browns, grays and beiges to make it.
