It’s a hard color to find. Most shop owners overlook it. Or carry just a few. And when I find it I usually buy it as most times it is a print I hadn’t seen in a shop prior. I know the fabric manufacturers do make it. I spend hours looking at fabric company swatch pages.
I love gray. It can really pump up the softest of pastels and tone down the most outrageous of oranges.
So I went back to my stash and pulled out my black/gray bin and set off to make another colorway/style option for the previous Dresden Plate idea.
Ta-Da. SPARKLE Pieced Hexie in the center!
Please ignore the basting stitches. Yesterday I had one of the “glitch days” in life where nothing was gelling. But I got the rosette done and wanted to share.
This really sings to me.
So I made a quick mock up of the block in a quilt setting.
Oh couldn’t you just picture this with a wide dusty purple-gray border and some lovely applique.
…or maybe some more Pieced Hexies around the edges.
