Neon and Neutral

Neon and Neutral 

As you might have noticed, I've spent some time recently playing with lights/darks using a range of gray - black in my scrappy stash blocks. I started collecting those so that I could make this Neon and Neutral quilt.

The idea of using a varying amount of grays- black fabrics intrigued me. I made half square triangles in lighter/darker combos. Some of the medium tones were used as both a light and a dark. It's all about the contrast. I wanted to frame them in bright colors, hence the name. I was excited about the patterns that could be made using them that would still show up even though they had been framed.

I made this version first and liked it but made the 2nd one with more pop colors.  This shows another design that can be made. The Neon and Neutral pattern is now available as a digital download in my Etsy store. This one still hasn't been quilted...shhhh don't tell anyone.
Happy Friday!

Truthfully, I like the 1st one better, More my style, though the 2nd is good. I'd make it for a giveaway.
