a quiet energy

With many of my quilts I tend to focus on bold & bright colour, but not this time!
Using a scrappy selection of low volume fabrics has created an interesting result.
It's a quilt that's easy to live with, it has a quiet restful energy about it
 ... I'll just let the photos do the talking!

For more details, inspiration etc about my quilt see an earlier post here
And, I found a great solids version here
- variety certainly is the spice of life!
Linking up to Finish It Up Friday here over at Crazy Mom Quilts
and to tgiff here
My first FAL Q2 finish ticked off 'the list' woo-hoo!

Hope you had some time this weekend to be creative too!


  1. I love the touch of orange! You are right about how nice it is to have a change of scene with low volume fabrics, something I must put on my to-do list. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That's really lovely, and I like that the blocks are offset, it makes it all rather interesting :D

  3. This is a very lovely low volume quilt. It's a nice pattern as well.

  4. Thanks for the link to the colourful one as well. Quite a contrast .

  5. Yes this quilt is very peaceful - I like your fabrics.

    1. Thank you! This quilt was a real scrap eater! The fabrics are a wild assortment of lights & neutrals that I had on the shelf! I also had enough binding here in my stash, so that was good too! Thanx for stopping by, Linda

  6. Congrats on the finish and a lovely, soothing quilt. :)

  7. Beautiful! Just got to work but I would love to go home, back to bed, and dream under this! Of course, the rainy day contributes to that feeling :-) I love the backing fabric, too! Wish you had shown more.

  8. Thanks for linking to the TGIFF. It is indeed a very peacefull quilt. Love the fabrics.

  9. Gosh, it's come together beautifully - love that pop of colour on the binding. Congratulations on the finish!

  10. Very nice, and great to have another finish. *Visiting as a member of the official 2015 Finish-Along cheerleading squad*
