Shades Of Gray

When I first envisioned this a year and a half ago, I had no idea how much I would like it.  My purpose was to get rid of some scraps.  I figured it would be a good guy quilts.  When I finished the top I was pretty excited, I loved how the different shades of gray played together and my boys thought it was pretty cool too.
 Now that the quilting is done (just simple straight lines a 1/4" from each seam) and my Josh sleeps with it, I love it's simple beauty.
Linking up with Sarah to celebrate the compilation of Shades of Gray.  Have a great weekend!

  7. Love how your wrote that 'simple beauty'. Scrap quilts don't have to involve every color in order to be fabulous.:)

  8. I love the simplicity, yet the hues of grey also give it a complexity too!
    I like Needled Mom's suggestion of making these in different colours!
