Finish It Up Friday ~ Neutral Scrappy Trips

You all got a sneak peek at this when I shared my monthly goals, but here is my official finish post.

This quilt is a wedding gift and the wedding is today!

I used a black b ding and soft gray solid sheet for the backing.

The pantograph is called Calliope and the finished quilt size is 96 by 96.

I’m not going to lie, working on this got a big boring. But I absolutely love the end result! It is restful and modern. Time to get this wrapped up. Have a great day!

    I love this quilt! The neutral palette is great. I’ve come realize that my favorite quilts are those I’ve made with many variations of two or three colors. The quilting is lovely as well.

  7. It’s beautiful Katy! My niece loves neutral palettes too but I find them a bit boring. This is going to make that wedding couple so happy ❤

    you did it Katy! I know that sewing so many squares may become boring.
    Did you count them?
    Anyhow it is great to get a quilt like this one!

    I like this one too! Have always liked the “Scrappy Trips” design because of how the riotous mash-up of colors works (so great for scrap busting!). However, I like the more cool and subdued look of this one. Looking back through your posts on this, you often commented on the construction — what made it boring at times: the construction of the blocks themselves or was the color palette not energizing enough until it all came together? In any event, perseverance is definitely its own reward here!
