We are making up an 18-month quilt called “Shades of Grey”, one block a month…but we thought so many greys would be too much like the west coast winter we have been experiencing. Instead of dark greys, light greys and blue, we are using Provençal fabrics in red, yellow and green.

The human is having a problem after sewing so many Hitty quilts – these blocks seem very large and unwieldy.  However Vanilla likes them Constance and says just wait a bit and it will all work out…stay tuned!

  1. I think these two quilts are gorgeous. Love the colors, the block size, and the fabric. Vanilla and Constance should be very proud of these gems.

  2. Of course, I love the Provençal prints and colors! What a good choice for your quilt. Yes, an 18″ block would look gigantic compared to Hitty quilts, but it appears that you and the dolls have done a spectacular job of it. I’ve looked up the pattern-it looks fun. I’ll be eager to see the outcome.

    • The thing I like about the pattern is that every block is a bit different. I am not completely happy about the amount of wastage that the technique requires, but it will be a fun project…
