Grey fabric & Hand Quilting

I have seen so many quilts with gray fabric as the neutral, and I love it!  I found several lovely grey fabrics while shopping at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe.
Mmmm... now to pair them with my stash and make a gorgeous quilt.

Another wonderful thing to do is hand quilting, using Perl 8 thread.  I picked up several colors of blue and green.  I plan on hand quilting my Single Girl quilt using these threads.  It's going to be delicious.

Wish me luck ;)

I am hand quilting and doing stitch in the ditch at the same time. I should have just done hand quilting, it is my first time. I love the relaxation of it. I cross stitch all the time. Good luck, you just gave me an idea with those colors, gorgeous.
