A Lighter Shade of Pale, Carrie's quilt is finished

This is from an email from my daughter, Carrie, who lives in North Carolina, that started this quilt:

"I've been thinking about a quilt and I think I want to go with non-colors. For example one dark charcoal gray fabric on the back; on the front have a quilted pattern of whites and off-whites, maybe pale, pale, pale pinks and yellows, too. Then have the stitching in a white thread so it would be subtle on the front, but dramatic on the back. Maybe in a floral pattern. What do you think?"

What I thought was, "This is do-able" and I set out to make Carrie her quilt of Non-Colors.  You can read about the process, here.

The quilt is very difficult to photograph, especially in sunshine.  I waited until our patio was shaded to get these photos.

This is the back of the quilt.  The quilt is twin size and measures 64.25" x 82".  We used Eggshell thread and the pantograph is called Star Flower Swirls.  My long arm quilter is Janiel Miller.  I'll get this shipped to Carrie, tomorrow.
May your bobbins always be full,
