Grey, Red and Blue

The days have been busy and drizzly, so there's been some finished projects, but no sun to take pictures, and no time to tell you about them.  I have a couple of finished, as well as works in progress, but I'll start by just showing you this simple one.  

My color inspiration began with the alphabet fabric.  It's a white background covered in all the letters of the alphabet in black.  I spotted it at the local quilt shop, and bought a small piece because I thought the letters would look cute cut up and put into something.  I decided to go with a restrained color palette.

Here's the back with a strip of my favorite blue elephants print.

Stippled with grey thread and bound with Kona Coal.

I'll soon be back with more on my next project.  


  1. I love it! It's beautiful!! Come and visit my blog. I'm having my 300th post giveaway this week and next week will be giving away a GO! cutter.

  2. Very cute! Restrained...but very interesting. You can't beat simplicity....or elephants!

  3. Wow that is a seriously cool quilt!! What a great idea.....
