four april giveaways

This month Okan Arts is giving away four half-yards of Laura Berringer’s Fade Out collection from Studio 37 of Marcus Fabrics paired with three spools of floss by Aurifil. There are four giveaways, each valued at $43.00.

Laura’s Fade Out cotton collection features only four colors—black, white, cream, and tan—for super subtle and sophisticated projects. Or for mixing with stash favorites as the perfect neutrals. The mark-making in the tone-on-tone patterning combines an eclectic mix of sketchy lines, alphabet letters, botanical forms, dotted swirls, Xs, and more. Each contemporary pattern says nothing by saying everything!

The 6-strand threads, Aurifloss, are made with 100% long staple cotton. Designed for hand-stitching, the threads can used straight off the wooden spools or divided into separate strands.

THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED. The winners are Dale W of Concord CA, Loris M of Cabria CA, Wendy B of Dublin OH, and Colleen F of Alanson MI.

  1. Kris Bryant says:

    A neutral only quilt is on my list of must makes. I love every neutral quilt that I see but just have not tried it yet. I think I’m afraid it will be a fail. These fabrics are fabulous!


    Such lovely, elegant colors.

  3. ROBIN SHEPARD says:

    I’ve never made a neutral quilt. These fabrics are nice and inspiring. Maybe a neutral quilt is in the future if I win. Thank you for the chance to win.

  4. Kathi says:

    Currently collecting neutrals for my quilt. Have purchased one of these fabrics. Would love the others.

  5. marta manole says:

    I didn’t do a quilt with only neutrals but I do like them.they can be the background for a lot of quilting..maybe will do one in the future…thanks ..marta

  6. debby says:

    I LOVE the look of neutrals only quilts. And I buy a lot of neutral fabrics. But when I go to make one, I always end up adding colors to it, because I do love color. Thanks for the giveaway. The fabric is gorgeous, and the aurifloss is very interesting!

  7. Gail says:

    Wow, what nice neutrals. I’ll have to track these down at one of my local quilt shops.

  8. Hester Tinti says:

    I made a Hunter’s Star lap quilt in off white and grey, and find it very calm and restful. I generally use strong colors, so this quilt was a departure for me. I think it is good for the eye and the mind to work in neutral and quiet shades on occasion.

  9. Edna Stimpson says:

    A very elegant collection.

  10. Pam Sealy says:

    Not my automatic choice but LOVE the compleated quilt. Several years ago made a “vanilla” monotone with a friend sharing our fabrics, now one of my favorites
    Recently finished a soft greys and white quilt that everyone loves

  11. Patti A. says:

    Oh how I love this collection. I once made a giant square maybe 40×40 that was to be paired with 4 others about the same size but never got them made and the neutral one is still hanging in my room. I love looking at it. Fade out would only add to it. Thanks for the chance to win

  12. margo clyma says:

    I am usually a very color oriented quilter. However when using neutrals that have an interesting overall design I can suppress my desire for color and love the textured effect of the neutral prints. Margo Clyma

  13. Shari K. says:

    I have not made one yet, but bought a book that is all about neutral quilts. I want to try one and this would be a great start. Love the fabric and the thread.

  14. Nancy Rocker says:

    I have not made an all neutral quilt but love to with these gorgeous fabrics.

  15. Rachael says:

    I love the look of neutral colored quilts! I have a stack of grays in my stash to eventually become an all gray/white quilt-I want to try a mariner’s compass with it but I am scared to mess it up and ruin all the pretty fabric! I am almost done with an all white HST quilt, although I think i am going to upcycle some old jeans to applique onto it so it won’t be all-white for long.

    Thank you for the giveaway- the Fade Out collection looks awesome!

  16. Brenda P says:

    I’ve never made a neutral quilt but I am always drawn to them, these fabrics are just beautiful !

  17. Alice Ronne says:

    I’ve not made a neutral colored quilt but I can always start! Thanks for the giveaway! Love the “softness” of the fabric colors.

  18. Helen says:

    Ive never been brave enough to try an ‘all neutral’ quilt, but do like a challenge. Going to look into it. Thanks for the nudge.

  19. Dale W says:

    I started including low volume neutral colored fabrics as the backgrounds in my quilts, and have found them to be much more interesting than using a plain white fabric. I have been collecting these kind of fabrics so that I have enough to make an entire quilt. I think it will be stunning!

  20. Agnes Burke says:

    An appealing idea , have neutral fabrics looking for inspiration, this offer may very well produce a quilt.
    Thank you for the chance!

  21. Katrine Eagling says:

    I’m not sure that I have made a quilt in the last 20+ years, using only neutrals.

  22. Connie Akers says:

    Love this collection & will look for it, win or not. I’ve recently made a small white/neutral piece and love the quietness of it.

  23. Pat says:

    I focused on texture when I made an almost white quilt. Quilting was done with white threads of varying weights.

  24. Diane Johnson says:

    I love the challenge of working with “neutrals only” and my greatest accomplishment was awarded second place in the local quilt guild show last year. I had entered my small quilt as a lark and was very surprised the judge found it worthy.

  25. Marilynn Dondero-Rich says:

    The Studio 37 neutral fabrics are beautiful. I have not made an all neutral quilt, just backgrounds and put bright appliqués over the background. The web site is great.

  26. Dottie says:

    I haven’t made one yet, but it’s on my list of must makes. I am always attracted to neutrals when shopping and have a great collection of them. Particularly grays. These fabrics are to lust after. Positively gorgeous. Can’t wait to see them in person. Thanks for the introduction.

  27. Jmj says:

    I’ve used the reverse or back side of fabrics. They work better sometimes when the front side is too strong

  28. Janet Wright says:

    I have made several small quilts with neutrals–especially gray and black (your favorite neutral–haha) I love the subtle elegance.

  29. Sheryl Ramstad says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt but keep remembering a quilt I saw 10 years ago in New Zealand. It was made of all black shapes in different fabrics and was stunning. Amazing the different shades of black!

  30. Corinne says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt yet. Closest I’ve come is black and white.

  31. Sgrancio says:

    I recently made a quilt that was more than 75% neutrals, plan to stretch to make one with all neutrals, just need to refresh my fabric collection a bit first! @susansquiltstudio

  32. Karen A says:

    I use a lot of neutrals, but it is most often in combination with colors. I would love to try an all neutral quilt.

  33. Carola S. De Pascuale says:

    I have worked on some of Yoko Saito ‘s pattern and the experience is one of calm and relaxation. Neutral colors are inviting and soft and unhurried. You are supposed to let go and be content.

  34. Pat in WNY says:

    I use a fair amount of neutrals in my quilts but haven’t yet made a quilt that focused on neutrals. This collection would go well with a fat quarter bundle of neutrals I’ve been hoarding for just the right occasion.

  35. Renee Atkinson says:

    Neutrals–the one item in the fabric store I must remember to get. My eyes are always drawn to color and pattern. So my goal has been I must grab one neutral for every pattern or color. The neutrals shown from Studio 37 are lovely attracting:) and the thread–who would not want more Aurifil thread! Thanks for the opportunity Okan Arts!

  36. Tish C. says:

    I’ve only made one neutral quilt, a very new experience, and found that it provided a lovely backdrop for bits of colors here and there. The low-contrast colors were very calming to work with and I’m looking forward to planning another quilt using similar neutral colors.

  37. kathy says:

    these fabrics are beautiful, I have not made a neutral only quilt, but it’s on the list to make.

  38. Mrs. Plum says:

    I’ve made one black and white quilt, but that’s it. I would like to make one in all creams and tans sometime.

  39. Janet Schayer says:

    I usually work with lots of color and variety. I recently started putting together improv blocks in a log cabin style with a limited color scheme and I’m enjoying the process and the quietness of the project.

  40. Suzanne Pritchard says:

    I have never completed a quilt made entirely with neutrals – somehow color always works it’s way in. These fabrics are stunning though and might be just the motivation I need to stay the neutral course in a new project.

  41. mvjan says:

    I have not yet made a neutral-only quilt, although there are several in my head. I guess I’ve been waiting to win this contest. Thank you.

  42. Karen says:

    I’ve made a couple neutral baby quilts. ..I think it’s so calming. And I love to see the baby bundled in the light colors, where their little face is the color feature. The perfect pop of color!

  43. Kaye Koler says:

    I loved making a neutral quilt because it goes with everything! It’s become one of my favorites!

  44. Martha Wacker says:

    I have never made an all neutral quilt, but these fabrics are inspirational and I’d love to use them. I also have been learning to do hand quilting; would love to try the Aurifil. Great giveaway!

  45. Nancy Pascoe says:

    I saw a beautiful neutral Japanese quilt at the Seattle Asian Museum many years ago and have wanted to make one ever since. What a lovely giveaway!

  46. Sylvia says:

    Never have!

  47. karen b says:

    I usually turn away from neutrals but lately they seem calming to me and I would like to try a quilt made of neutrals. I have begun to collect some fabrics and am waiting for the inspiration to strike to design my piece. These would be a great addition.

  48. Robin Shilman says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt but am very intrigued by them

  49. Janie M says:

    I have made two subtle quilts this year. I love how they turned out.

  50. Shirley Whitcomb says:

    I have only made one attempt at neutral quilting. It was my first improve attempt and I loved the total freedom of it. My biggest frustration was finding fabrics that had enough variety in value and texture to make it interesting. Laura Berringer’s Fade Out collection is perfect.

  51. From what I can see these fabrics look so soft and subtle. I have not had an opportunity to use such unique fabric and would love to give them a try.

  52. Tina J says:

    I like to use some neutral colors since I predominantly use colors. I am in the process of making a neutral quilt with an old ballot bag from 1943 as the feature fabric, I will quilt, vote early and vote often on the quilt. I’m in love with the off white color and black lettering cut apart and showing up.

  53. Carol Mitchell says:

    A neutral only quilt can be a great challenge for many people. Reason: Getting the values in the correct places. A well designed neutral quilt can be classy but intimidating.

  54. folksmith says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt, yet, however i have purchased a couple of books dealing with neutral quilts. These fabrics and threads are beautiful.

  55. Regina Thomsen says:

    I have not had the pleasure of working in neutrals but I have been slowly gathering a collection of them in anticipation of creating a subtle, soft colorations, neutral quilt. The fabrics from this collection exemplify the essence I have been conceptualizing for a neutral quilt. I must order some and I appreciate learning they are available! Thank you for your lovely news letter, I continually enjoy receiving it.

  56. Angela says:

    I’ve always wanted to make a neutral quit! If I was to win, it would be a great way to start.

  57. Barbara says:

    I’ve made a couple neutral, low volume baby quilts and just love them. They are so calm and yet they have so much movement and complexity. I am challenging myself to do more of them as our guild is committed to provide quilts for Children’s Hospital in my city. I can hardly wait to start.

  58. Dianne Fitch says:

    I’ve made black and white quilts. They are quite striking. I would love to try a quilt using a variety of neutrals.

  59. Jeanette Swenson says:

    the over all flow is so peaceful and calming. I love feel of neutral quilts!

  60. jane says:

    I’ve been using more neutrals and moving toward a mostly neutrals design. Love it’s calm. These look beautiful!

  61. Nancy R says:

    These fabrics are fabulous! I’ve never made an all neutral quilt. I’ve dreamed of making one though that would show off all the great texture of a stunning pattern with multiple shades of white.

  62. Brenda J says:

    I have not worked with an all neutral fabric theme, this is something to try!

  63. Cheryl Simokat says:

    This yardage is perfect to explore a neutral quilt. I would love to make a quilt with it!

  64. Reid Barnhart says:

    oops.. left my comment in the wrong place.. oh well… Have not made a neutral quilt.

  65. Valerie Kobayashi says:

    Neutral quilts offer tranquility and softness not found in other mediums. My very first quilt was made of neutrals and as it has faded over the years it has become lovelier. The prints you offer in your give away are beautiful! Thank you for your offer!

  66. Annie Becker says:

    My son want a gray quilt, I was sceptical, but loved how soothing and beautiful the result was.

  67. Martha says:

    I’ve never made a quilt with neutrals but would love to. They look very calming yet modern to me!

  68. Tesi Vaara says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt. My stash contains very few neutral fabrics. It would be a good exercise in values!

  69. Gayla says:

    I have zero experience making an entirely neutral quilt. The neutrals being designed now are much more interesting than even the last five years. I would like to give it a go!

  70. Linda Fleming says:

    I have no experience making a neutral-only quilt! These fabrics are fabulous. I love the different strip designs. It would be a wonderful challenge to make a quilt with them. I’d use my Tatami Mat quilt pattern.

  71. Madhu says:

    I am yet to do an all-neutral quilt, but I am planning one for my son and Dilip!

  72. Karen Friedrichs says:

    I have no experience in making an all neutral quilt.

  73. Cathy Spanish says:

    I’ve made a neutral quilt which was dark, medium, and light shades…anything not on the color wheel. It’s actually being quilted now, and I’m very anxious to see it finished. Your fabrics are just luscious! I’m working to collect more light neutrals.

  74. Christi says:

    I saw an all neutral Log Cabin quilt and ever since then I have been collecting neutrals just for that someday quilt.

  75. Daisy Rae says:

    Not yet managed a neutral only quilt – am looking forward to making one!

  76. Audrey says:

    I’ve only tried to make two different neutral quilts and in the end I found myself adding just a tiny bit of color. Neutrals are gorgeous to work with tho. So serene and very relaxing! Love this giveaway!

  77. Susan Wolcott says:

    I made 3 small neutral wallhangings. I liked them.
    Want to try more. I agree texture is important.

  78. cindy says:

    I never tried it yet but I have a few family members that are using white and grey in the nursery and this would be a nice gift.

  79. Kimberly Lainson says:

    I love neutral fabrics and gray and white or cream and tan make awesome quilts. Neutral quilts let you add splashes of color throughout the year with other decorations.

  80. Patricia Smith says:

    Haven’t done one yet, but have been collecting neutrals to make one. These would be perfect.

  81. Beth says:

    Ive never made a neutral quilt. I’d love to give it a try.

  82. Cecilia says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt, but it is on my to do list. These fabrics are beautiful.

  83. I’ve never made an all neutral quilt, but I’d love subtle color variations.

  84. Trudi Rammelkamp says:

    Neutral quilts are calming to look at and calming to make.

  85. Michelle Weatherson says:

    I have had zero experience making an all neutral quilt–but would love to give it a go!

  86. Sue Smith says:

    I love my neutrals only quilt. I made it years ago with some friends and they argued all through the process that it wouldn’t work, but it is still my favorite

  87. Sherril McGann says:

    I have absolutely not experience sewing a neutral only quilt. I would certainly look forward to trying this…and I am a great fan of Aurifil threads.

  88. Ramona Putnam says:

    These are gorgeous fabrics! Fantastic neutrals.

  89. Pip D. says:

    I have made one neutral free motion, quilted wall hanging. The threads that composed the picture were all neutrals to accentuate the stitching. I like neutrals in my sewing and home decorating. To me, colors are not as elegant as a monochrome of neutral shades with complementary textures and bulky thread.

  90. kathy powell says:

    I find it hard to work with neutrals I always seem to add some bright flash , but they can be so calming.

  91. Geri Prentice says:

    My daughter in law’s favorite would be neutral toned quilts

  92. Carol Fish says:

    I love neutral fabric but find it difficult to not have some bright color to pop. I always need a neutral to contrast with most of my stash.

  93. Kathyh says:

    I’ve made a couple small ones for swaps and gifts. I like the graduations of color.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  94. Nancy Hower says:

    I have never made one, if I were to win the fabric and thread I would be using them for my first attempt. I would make a table topper.

  95. Mary D says:

    I haven’t made a neutral only quilt yet but it is on my list of to do’s. I have been collecting neutral fabrics and have saved several pics of neutral quilts that I like for a while. Yes one is on the horizon.

  96. Patti Bach says:

    I made a neutral baby quilt once with the addition of pale pink which came about beautifully. It was a triangular pattern and matched one I made for the mom with the addition of pale yellow. I find working work neutrals to be very calming and a nice change from my normally intensely colored world.

  97. Eleanor says:

    I’ve made one neutral only quilt that I really like.

  98. Tracy says:

    I have yet to make a fully neutral quilt but have been planning one in the near future.

  99. Ginny says:

    I’ve never made a neutral only quilt, but these fabrics are so beautiful, they could inspire!!

  100. I have been watching the proliferation of the neutral quilts. I like them but I am still mulling over what I can do to make it mine and fit into my style. The fabrics are so interesting and textural that I know I will have to use the neutrals I have been collecting!

  101. Patti Levine says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt yet but have had it on my bucket list for ages….absolutely love the look of them and am anxious to jump in with one! Thanks for the chance to win.

  102. KayB says:

    I tend to use black more than any other ‘color’ in my quilts. I have used grey and cream low-volume fabrics for geometric backgrounds. I would love to combine them into a small quilt with lots and lots of hand embroidery!

  103. I made an all neutrals quilt for my granddaughter and she absolutely loved it. I saw the quilt hanging in a quilt shop and knew I had to make one. They no longer had the fabrics in that particular quilt, so I began gathering my own neutral fat quarters and voila’ a quilt was born.

  104. Karen Anderson says:

    I just purchased some neutrals at AQS Paducah. These fabrics would make a fabulous addition.

  105. Terry Cullan says:

    A number of years ago I made a “Latte Quilt” I think the designer was Kerri Hey, it was creams, light and darker versions.

  106. Mary Buersmeyer says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt but I have admired ones that other people have done.

  107. Kristal J says:

    An all neutral quilt would be a challenge for me, but that’s the best part of quilting–challenging yourself.

  108. Vicki Richardson says:

    I am using more and more grays in my quilting. I’m looking for a verigated gray thread now for more options in hiding my hand stitching.
    Thank you!

  109. Ali says:

    Awesome threads and great fabrics!!!

  110. Carol Nelms says:

    I have only made one neutral quilt, but loved it, and am planning another!

  111. Aimee W says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt, but these fabrics make me want to try one. Beautiful!

  112. Maurine says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt. But I would love to make one.

  113. Quilting Tangent says:

    I never made a neutral only quilt. Those fabrics are mixed into my normal quilts

  114. Kathy Gorman says:

    I actually have no experience making a neutral only quilt – but I would love to! I am new to Quilting but a neutral quilt would be so soothing to the eye.

  115. Aime Augsburg says:

    I have also never made a neutrals only quilt. The fabrics and threads shown are very intriguing though. They could be put together in such a sophisticated way. Being that I am retiring May 1 … I could have nice project to get started on!

  116. BRYNNE WYATT says:

    I haven’t made one yet but I am collecting fabrics for one.

  117. Sueanne M says:

    Oh would I love to win this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  118. Teri says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt although I have gathered material to do so.

  119. Lynn Thornton says:

    I love the simplicity of neutral quilts. They hold wonderful memories of my mother saying that the quilt looks “nice and clean!”

  120. LINDA says:

    Lovely! Thrilled with the whites+greys pieced together! Thanks you for sharing a sweet giveaway!!!

  121. Alice says:

    I love working on neutral only quilts! It helps me relax and focus on the quiet rhythms of stitching and piecing.

  122. T’ell Ess says:

    I have yet to make a all neutral quilt but this fabric makes me want to start one now…beautiful:)

  123. Nancy Currier says:

    I’ve never made a neutral only quilt. It looks interesting- soothing,calming.

  124. Maureen says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt, but if I won I could. I do use Aurifil thread!

  125. Laura Tawney says:

    I’ve been looking for some neutrals for a small Quilt feTuring birds and also using big stitches with Aurifil thread. This would be a perfect combination! Thanks for the introduction to this awesome designer and fabrics:-)

  126. Suzanne Adler says:

    I have never made an all neutral quilt — yet. I love these grays from Studio 37! I am working with more and more gray fabrics lately and these would work great.
    I am thinking if I made neutral quilt I would have to add a pop of color. Maybe yellow? Or a shade of blue? What about red? Yet — would have to have a pop. At least for me! Thanks for the chance to win.

  127. Peggy Shepherd says:

    A baby quilt. One piece, beige and white pattern with all-over stippling. Simple and beautiful.

  128. I made one for a wedding gift years ago. I loved how it looked, even though I usually use lots of color.

  129. Sanny says:

    Ehm… none I’m afraid but I know just the person that I would make my first neutral quilt for, my mom as a thank you gift for everything she has done for us the last couple of years.

  130. Maridel Armstrong says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt as yet but these beautiful fabrics definitely inspire me.

  131. Lorraine says:

    I have made one and it was a little difficult, but I loved the result. Your fabrics are beautiful!

  132. Barb says:

    Haven’t completed a quilt but I have made some blocks with luscious taupes & grays

  133. Carolyn S White says:

    I had not made a neutral only quilt, on my bucket list. I’ve made several black and white quilts and enjoyed them. This fabric is lovely and would make such a beautiful quilt!

  134. Mary Gilkey says:

    The only neutrals only quilts have been black and white, which I like a lot. I enjoy the high contrast, but I’ve seen a few subdued neutrals collections that make me think about a more subdued palette.

  135. Laurel Bandi says:

    I made a neutral quilt for my son and daughter-in-law. I normally use brighter colors but the calm palette went much better with their modern house. I’d love to make them another one with your beautiful fabric.

  136. Jessica Shouse says:

    I’m too scared a neutral quilt would get dirty!

  137. Pam says:

    I’ve made a neutral quilt for a gift for my sister. Thanks for offering giveaway

  138. Deb F says:

    I have yet to make a quilt using all neutrals even though they always catch my eye. The fabrics and threads are stunning. Thank you for the chance to win.

  139. Kathy E. says:

    I have made only one neutral-only project. It is a table runner that I included fussy cut pieces of my mom’s cotton handkerchiefs. It turned out so lovely and is one of my favorite creations! My mom would love it too!

  140. Esther Daugherty says:

    I have never made a neutral project but hope to in the future. I’m very new to all this it’s almost overwhelming. I see so many beautiful things being made and want them all.

  141. Mary S says:

    A neutral I made was in various grays & white. I don’t think it was really successful. Perhaps I need to try again.

  142. joanrob8 says:

    I’ve never made a neutral only quilt. I’ve always been afraid it wouldn’t look right.

  143. Janice Y. says:

    I’m new to quilting so a quilt in neutrals would be the perfect stepping stone. ❤️

  144. Michele Wallace says:

    I love working with beautiful fabric. Brings me joy. I created a bargello quilt with neutrals for my oldest grandson’s quilt. Loved the flow of it and it had a masculine feel. This assortment is lovely. It’s time to make a quilt for my grandson’s fiance. They would compliment each other beautifully, just like the kids do.

  145. Heather says:

    I’ve never made a neutral quilt, but I love the look of them! It’s certainly on my “to make” list! Thank you for the chance!

  146. I have not yet made a neutrals only quilt. They are beautiful but not my normal go to color scheme. I have a pattern in mind but haven’t collected all the fabric for it. These prints are stunning and would be a beautiful addition to any project.

  147. Kate Meyers says:

    Lovely and so sophisticated!! I’m working (in my head) on a project that will have different hues of white and silver.

  148. Yvonne Lyons says:

    Just as there is no true white and no true black, a neutral quilt will speak to and reflect the colours around it and resonate with the light in the room depending on its source. Whatever I make will have a look and personality of it’s own.

  149. Lorene Ono says:

    I didn’t realize I was making a neutral quilt until I was finished…made hexagon grandmother’s flower garden out of taupe background printed material, set on white background. My friends called it a taupe quilt. I didn’t like it at first since I like bold colors, but it grew on me. I may do a more contemporary neutral quilt next.

  150. Lea Ferring says:

    I made an all neutral small art quilt of a dandelion. Background was pieced in all neutral fabrics, embellished with antique ecru lace and the dandelion was thread stitched in beige thread. Fun challenge to use just neutral colors.

  151. Cheryl Doenitz says:

    Fade out colors can be used in any room. So easy when you use different threads also. I tried to use grey fade out, and went back in with a tiny red heat.

  152. Mary Ellen Larson says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt. On my list to try it out. This would be perfect for our quilt challenge birds and words for this year.

  153. Karen says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt yet. My stash of low volume is slowly growing, so it will happen!

  154. Cori says:

    I have yet to make one but I have this image in my head of a half square triangle quilt that flows from one neutral to the next diagonally from corner to corner.

  155. Diane says:

    I haven’t made an all neutral quilt but I love the quiet colors of these fabrics!

  156. Marlene Reasoner says:

    I’ve made one quilt that was all neutral, off whites. Love it!

  157. Jody Smith says:

    I love making a neutral quilt with Grey’s, taupes, and whites. It’s fun to find just the right pattern and then mix it with the right amount of where each neutral goes. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. These fabrics are absolutely gorgeous with the aurefil threads!

  158. Love the fabrics, and the aurifill thread is icing on the cake! A mini quilt is being formulated in my mind!

  159. I made a black and white baby quilt that was a fun departure from my regular bright colors. I love the look of neutrals because they are so classy and modern.

  160. Millie Rondon says:

    I’ve yet to make a neutrals only quilt but I did use this fabric (gray tone one), in my most recent quilt and loved it.

  161. Patricia Molinari says:

    I have only made one neutral quilt and had to control myself from adding some bright colors. It did turn out very nice and I use it all the time. These neutral fabrics are really beautiful and quite different but I definitely would like to use them and maybe add a little color.

  162. Giuliana Nakashima says:

    peace, meditative, serenity…

  163. Jerie Clark says:

    I am not usually attracted to neutrals so have not made a neutral quilt but these are just gorgeous and I definitely would like to try them out.

  164. suzi leong says:

    i have never made a neutral theme quilt, but with the gorgeous offerings this month
    i am encouraged and will be adding it to my list of 2018 must do’s. Even if i do not
    win i most certainly be adding some of her line to my “collection”.

  165. Gloria Correia says:

    Love love these fabrics! Pick me!

  173. Janet T says:

    I got a pattern years ago to make one, but had a hard time finding neutrals to go with my other fabrics. It became a someday quilt. Thank for reminding me of this quilt. Maybe with the newer fabrics, I can now find what I need to make the quilt.

  174. Linda Bushee says:

    I made a king size Log Cabin with neutrals last fall. Loved it!

  176. KRISTEN KENNEDY says:

    I dress in neutrals, decorate in neutrals and quilt in neutrals despite the influence of my friends!

    I often start out with an all-neutral plan, but it always seems that a burgundy, mustard or avocado creeps in.

    I have never made a neutral only quilt but would love to give it a try. I love these fabrics. Thanks for the opportunity, Sharon

  179. kvilter says:

  180. QuiltWench says:

    These are beautiful. They would be perfect for a muted neutrals quilt.

  181. Loris Mills says:

  182. Darla says:

    So far, I have never made a neutral ONLY quilt but it is certainly something I would like to try if I could find the right pattern. I try to keep myself open to using many different fabrics and threads for my quilts as there is always something new on the market.

  187. Beth T. says:

    I’m making a neutral orange peel quilt using batiks. I love it–I find myself really looking at each fabric in a way I sometimes don’t with bolder, brighter prints. There’s a larger lesson there, I think.

  188. Carol Garner says:

    Love neutrals, and these are beautiful. Would be a great addition to my stash. And the thread would certainly be fun to work with.

  189. Martha Mumaw says:

    Love the fabrics! I have some of the threadsand have enjoyed working with them.

  190. Lavana Eidson says:

    It has been years since I made a neutral quilt. The quilt was in tans and creams when greys were not so available. I think it may be time to start a new neutral project with the grey tones. Thanks for this offering. You have got my creative thought going. Thanks

    I’ve never made a neutral only quilt, but they are so striking!

  194. Rose Haury says:

    Love love love neutrals. Have made a taupe/brown quilt that is a favorite. Different prints/textures of the same color together are so classey looking. I can see using the Fade Out Now as a background for appliwue.

    Not a quilt, but I’ve made a couple of pillows and table runner for a male friend, using gray, white, and tan that turned out beautifully. These prints and subtle colors are wonderful.

    A neutral is in my dream queue. It just hasn’t happened yet.

  203. Jeannie says:

    I love this line of cloth. I used to shy away from neutrals, but now they are my favorites. You can do so much with them – paint the motifs, over dye, use them to accent other fabrics, and so much more. Thank you for hosting this beautiful give away.

  204. Cinda Thompson says:

    The limited palette requires a little more thought, but the results are beautiful.

  205. Donna Belisle says:

    These Knock-out gorgeous fabrics will showcase anything that you use to ornament your surface, be it subtle or brash. These fabrics are to die for.

  206. Debbie Camp says:

    I thought I was making a neutral baby quilt last month, but somehow a yellow New York Beauty block found its way into the quilt. I need to try again.

  207. madeline wallace says:

    Ive never done a neutral only quilt, but I really need good background fabrics all the time.

  208. Lisa Boles says:

    I’ve never worked with all neutrals before but would love to give it a try. I remember years ago there was a quilt that was all neutral on the bed of a quilt book. I loved the it looked and at the time wondered if it would be worth the effort. Add several more years of quilting and now I know it would so totally be worth the effort!

  209. lcdds217 says:

    I made an all neutral quilt for a designer’s booth at quilt market.

  213. Robbi Imhoff says:

    I really like neutral only quilts because I like the quilting process as much as I like the piecing process. A neutral only quilt provides lots of space for the quilting motifs. Hope I am one of the lucky winners. This is a beautiful collection of fabrics and threads.

    That it is o.k. to let it whisper color, it does not have to scream!

    I have not made a neutral quilt, I’ve always done brights. Perhaps I should branch out!

  241. Janice says:

    I made my grandson a wedding quilt from neutrals. It was a simple pieced patchwork and I thought it would allow them to use any other color they would choose to go with it. It was a joy to visit them some years later and see it on their bed.

  242. Cheryl says:

    Now I’ve seen the new neutrals, I’m inspired to try a quilt that’s subtle.

  243. Cheryl says:

    On my to do list

    I’ve just started collecting Low-Volume prints – love this trend towards muted colors and the possibilities for creating something stunningly simple.

  248. Elizabeth Bolton says:

    I have only made one neutral piece – a throw pillow cover in beiges/whites – and I quite liked it. I’d like to do another something in greys with the tiniest amount of a color added – maybe a yellow? an orange??

  249. goonyburd says:

    I’ve never made one – yet!

  250. Jean Carideo says:

    I saw in a magazine someone’s collection of vials of sand from all over the world. After that, the word “tan” became meaningless and my way of seeing neutrals changed. Tried one small piece, can see I have a lot to

  251. Carol says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt yet. Think this would spur me on to make one. The floss is wonderful!

  252. Vicky Morrow says:

    I have only thought of a neutral only quilt and these fabrics and thread a an inspiration for making one.

  254. Jeannine James says:

    I love working with neutrals! Very calming and elegant

  255. Patricia Burke says:

    I have not yet tried a neutrals only quilt, but definitely will add to my list of projects. Thank you for opportunity!

  268. Debra Dobbs says:

    I’ve made a couple pieces using neutrals. Each time, I found myself contemplating whether to stick with light greys or light beiges, or whether to use both, and also whether to introduce blacks for contrast. I’ve loved how soothing the neutrals are. I’ve not seen these collections before. Where have I been?!

  269. Estie says:

    I have no experience in making a neutrals only quilt, but certainly I would like to try.

    The neutral palette in colors always make colors next to it stand out. They always are giving compliments to neighboring articles.

  275. Sandra Lee Ellison says:

    The results have a sophisticated feeling.

  276. Marie Swanz says:

    We are lucky to have a shop nearby that carries Japanese taupes. I have bought a book by Saito-san to start my work with these.

  277. Ellen Y says:

    I’ve only used neutrals as background on quilts – this gives me ideas to try a neutral quilt.

  278. Mary Jo says:

    I have chosen fabric for a neutral only quilt, but am still waiting for inspiration!

  279. Fran Madler says:

  280. Vita Toci says:

    Well I have a dream to make a quilt out of grays and whites for my daughter in law and grandson. She loves grays and whites. They live in Alaska. Maybe it’s all the snow they get that inspires her. Lovely fabric.

  281. KarenH says:

    Hi – I have not made a neutral only quilt yet but it is on my list. I think they are beautiful!

  282. Kathy McGinnis says:

    I’m trying to make one right now, building it around a bundle of Oakshott cotton I bought at Quiltcon. It’s challenging to stick with such a restrained and pale color palette! But I love it, and am enjoying working without a plan or pattern.

  283. Dionne Matthies-Buban says:

    Love these neutrals! Thank you for the opportunity!

  284. Judith McGinty says:

    I used greys in a spectrum of values to educate myself about the impact of value on accompanying colors

    Love these colors.

  295. Lily Kamikihara says:

    I have never made a neutral color quilt but it is on my bucket list. I have been collecting neutrals. Oh so many quilts to make but oh so little time…

  296. Lotus Blossom says:

    As a newer member to Portland Modern Quilt Guild, I have embraced the ‘less is more” concept . After taking several classes on piecing and design, then discovering the modern guild I feel like a bird in flight. Where can I go with this? The sky is the limit. Current Moon Gate project has me scouring the shops for very low volume, organic feeling designs. Came across your shop on internet hoping the Seattle area could offer me much needed resources. Field trip!

  297. Judy Valentino says:

    I have not done a neutral quilt, yet. I am still collecting fabrics!

  299. Kathy S says:

    90 percent of my work is in neutrals (mostly wearable)—so great to see I’m not alone. Thank you.

  300. Chris P says:

    I have been working towards making a neutral color quilt. It’s quickly coming to the top of list of “next to do”. Excited to have fabrics and patterns almost lined up. Would love to add this fabric to the final product!

  301. Laura Huckabee says:

    I am dying to try a calm neutral quilt and this would be a great way to get it started.

  302. Christine Wallis says:

    I have not yet made one, but now that I’m subscribing to your newsletter, I am getting a fever to visit the places you’ve recommended and to begin quilting again. A neutral-toned quilt would be a wonderful complement to my current favorite bedding. The more I think about it, well, let’s just say my fever is rising.

  303. Mary says:

    Wow- I haven’t attempted a neutral only quilt! But I do love mixing up neutral fabrics into my quilts.

  304. Gail Hammond says:

    Have not made a neutrals quilt as I tend to like brights set off by neutrals.

  305. Eleanor Love says:

    Love Okan Arts and all things Japanese

  306. Jean Kelly says:

    Haven’t done a totally neutral quilt but used neutral linens and linen blends for the background of a quilt with a few aboriginal hexie flowers scattered about. Love the calmness of the piece.

  307. I am currently working on my very first neutral quilt, it is a flying geese variation and it is in very light neutrals for my daughter and son-in-law!

  308. Celia Boland says:

    Making neutral or single color quilts poses the same challenges as other quilts. A place to rest the eyes, Interest to grab the eyes, Movement and texture. Texture plays a very important part of single color quilts, I add more types of threads, more dimensional stitches and interesting embellishments.

  309. Claudia says:

    I have made quilts which were majority neutral fabrics and they are outstanding. These fabrics are perfect to use as the focus or a quilt.

  310. Ilse Scott says:

    I have never made a neutrals only quilt but have always been drawn to them- I am truly inspired by this collection of neutrals

  311. Lu Peters says:

    I was challenged to achieve contrast, so I used subtly patterned tone on tone Fabrics and created texture with 30 weight quilting thread that showed on the surface.

  312. Jo Ewald says:

    I find neutral only quilts fascinating–they need great design to succeed.

  313. Barbaraben says:

    I’ve never tried a neutral only quilt. I’m intrigued with the challenge and want to try this soon.

  314. carol Denning says:

    I have not yet made a neutral only ,, because i really like including a shot of yellow, a zinger in my handwork. These fabrics may change my mind! Love the thread !! Thanks for the chance to win!

  315. Teresa Klenz says:

    I have not made a quilt with neutral fabrics only. I find its a little scary to use only the soft colors as I call them! Would love to give it a try, the work on this
    OKAN ARTS web page is something else!! Thanks for the wonderful inspirations.

  316. PAULA MORGAN says:

    Have not had that experience yet, however, I did make a neutral Christmas wreath out of neutral colors, I would not of expected a dull gray/silver would go so well with creams and off white. I must say it was fun, pulling from a variety of ornaments, to see what would work. Surely it would be the same experience only without the burnt fingertips!

  317. Jude Swift says:

    the temptation to add more color is always there for me, but the freedom of woking in neutrals is really rewarding, it doesn’t stop me, however, from adding just a pop of color, in the binding, through a few strips. i just made one and did just that!

  318. marty says:

    Well, have yet to do a neutral quilt

  319. Linda Wenzel says:

    A neutral only quilt is on my aspiration list. I love the serenity neutrals invoke and making one excites me.

  321. Kathleen Flanagan says:

    This fabric is perfect with scraps of shibori!

  322. Maryanne Sakai-James says:

    Making neutral only quilts is always a very calming experience. It draws me out of myself while encouraging me to look inward. Nice trick for something so simple!

  323. Grace Lombardo says:

    I’ve never made a neutral-only quilt, but I have seen beautiful examples of them at shows.

  324. Barb Colvin says:

    A neutrals only quilt is on my bucket list. I’ve seen some real beauties.

  325. joann Sarachman says:

    I started a neutral q;uuilt but did not finish it. It sis stallion my UFO box. I need some motivation to complete it.

  326. diane friedman says:

    Ive never tried a neutral type quilt and would have to study the values of combining the neutral values. usually I select bright combinations that work well together, this would be quite a challenge for someone used to a different selection.

  327. Rochelle Blair says:

    I have no experience with making an all-neutral quilt but it sounds like a wonderful challenge project. I love the idea.

  328. Sue Laughton says:

    I have no experience in making a neutral-only quilt! I generally use brights – but I think it would be fun to try one & expand my horizons.

  329. Donna Sereda says:

    I made a neutrals-only table runner that looks perfect in our home, and now I’m determined to make a larger piece for the wall. The fabric and threads in the giveaway are gorgeous!

  330. Jill says:

    I have some neutrals and am wanting to start my Neutral quilt. I think simple would look beautiful!

  331. Wendy Bynner says:

    These fabrics are wonderful and inspiring- I’ve always wanted to make a neutral only quilt but haven’t tried one yet- just getting into the modern quilt movement so maybe if I win that will be the inspiration I need.

  332. Cindy Hanrahan says:

    I have never made a tone on tone quilt, but I think it would be a fun challenge. Thank you!

  333. Deborah Stone says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt, but I have put pieces together as in borough ( like I saw at Amuse Museum in Tokyo), and it is fascinating to me how shapes and tones change so subtly when placed together and a running stitch is used. I would LOVE to have this combination to play with.

  334. Janet Hasselblad says:

    No experience so far. I’m a color freak. However, as time goes on I’m finding how vsvaluab a neutral pallette can be. I look forward to my first one.

  335. Nance says:

    I’ve only used neutrals as a contrast or background to more colorful fabrics. But a little baby quilt would be so sweet in the lighter range of neutrals.

  336. Pam Cope says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt, although I love to look at them! Maybe if I will the giveaway I’ll make one. I always seem to need to add a splash of color.

  337. Meredith says:

    I have used Japanese neutrals in my quilts but have never made an all-neutral quilt. These 4 fabrics are intriguing—so beautiful that I want to get started on a neutral-fabric now!

  338. Barbara Lotthammer says:

    A neutral quilt is on my “to do” list. I do love neutrals

  339. Patricia says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt yet, but I would like to try one with these gorgeous fabrics.

  340. Fran Ripsom says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt…..but I have made smaller pieces involving
    stitching as well as quilting ( one was used as the “ring pillow” for a wedding ! )
    I would love the challenge of a neutral quilt….beautiful fabrics & thread !

  341. Judy McNeel says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt, but would love to one day. These fabrics are beautiful and I appreciate the opportunity to win.

  342. Janet says:

    Moving to Tucson and bought a cactus quilt pattern. Now I just need the neutrals for the backgrounds.

  343. Jennifer Thomas says:

    This fabric and thread with a subtle splash of color give me great vision even if I don’t win.

  344. Barb K. says:

    I have not as yet, made an all neutral quilt–however this fabric makes me want to try one–beautiful!

  345. Marty Mason says:

    I found making neutral quilts very relaxing and easy to put together with no fear that one neutral may fight with another. What a great giveaway….neutrals love.

  346. Lori Martinsek says:

    I made an improve quilt using ivory and white neutrals with solid ash fabric for the trees to convey trees in winter. I loved working with assorted neutrals to allow the viewer to relax.

    These fabrics are elegant; I love the mixture of the patterns; I plan to order two of these fabrics. I’m inspired to use the rich neutral threads for big stitch quilting for my current quilt that I am making with neutrals setting off a collaged heart.

  347. Melissa Robinson says:

    I have yet to make a quilt entirely out of neutrals, but it sounds intriguing!

  348. Charlene Cuhaciyan says:

    Oh my, these are stunning fabrics. My my is whizzing with all of the possibilities.

    I will have to check out the Studio 37 website. I’m so excited!

  349. Elizabeth Gould says:

    I’m putting fabric together for my first white/off-white quilt. One of my son’s friends is getting married and everything in her registry is white so I decide it was time to try a LOW volume quilt. These fabrics would be lovely to add!

  350. spierssusan says:

    Love these fabrics! The closest quilt to a neutral would be my hanky quilt – hand quilted blocks, machine quilted white borders & edges, with a white backing! I still have to finish machine quilting, but is my favorite quilt!

  351. Vivian Roop says:

    Just couldn’t leave it neutral. I had to add that dash of color.

  352. Pat Davies says:

    Hi, Althouhg I never had the experience of making aneutal quilt, I woukd like to make one for our bedroom! I think it would have a calming effect to go in the room and be quiet from our very active lives!

  353. Susan says:

    My experience creating a neutral only quilt uses only shades of white. It includes raw edge applique. machine quilting, a crazy quilted border with assorted embellishments–including tatting, lace, ribbons, printed fabric quotes, machine embroidery stitching, beading. My neutral white fabrics are solids, white-on- white patterns and batiks.

  354. Carolyn Wolf says:

    Working with neutrals only is way outside my box, but a great lesson in really paying attention to value. I’m always tempted to put in JUST a smidgen of RED for dramatic effect!

  355. cathy Nosar says:

    I want to win !!!

  356. Jerry Turner says:

    A quilt made from just these neutrals would be a mind expander. I’m ready!

  357. Nancy says:

    I have really only made one quilt in all neutrals, despite being referred to by friends as the queen of beige. Neutrals just call to me. And this collection is DIVINE.

  358. Barbara Kampas says:

    I have never made a neutral-only quilt and would very much enjoy the option. Life has been stressful and I think it would be a great project to work on during such a time.

  359. Judy says:

    I’ve always wanted to make a neutral quilt but haven’t started one yet. Love these fabric combinations.

  360. Alice Brody says:

    What a great opportunity to try designing an all neutral quilt.

  361. MONA says:

    I’ve never made an all neutral quilt, however, I do usually make quilts with a variety of low volume/neutral fabrics for the background in my quilts. Love them! The neutrals help pop the colors I use!

  362. Kathryn Laposata says:

    I have never made a neutral quilt. I usually make quilts for kids, and they love color.

  363. Candace Strong says:

    I have long been admiring neutral and low volume quilts and plan to make one soon!

  364. Janet McDonald says:

    I have not yet made a neutral-only quilt. Closest I’ve come is tan, indigo, and brown, with some rusty red thrown in.

  365. Mary Rowin says:

    I made a quilted pillow, cream on cream. It’s time to try another variation.

  366. Ellen L says:

    I’ve never made a complete quilt in neutrals, but would love to try with these fabrics – they are beautiful. Love the idea!

  367. Jolene Mershon says:

    I think that a black and white quilt would quality for all neutrals and I recently made one for my oldest grandson. It was a real challenge to make sure I still had contrast between the many fabrics. I used mostly white w/black and mostly black w/white prints and then sashing and corner stones of solid black and white. I did a lot of thread changing so that the quilting would continue the drama of the black and white. This is the first all neutral quilt I’ve ever made but it was fun and a great challenge. I have quite a few neutrals in my stash but am drawn to these that are in the giveaway.

  368. Sarah Sainsbury says:

    I’d love to make a neutral quilt–these are beautiful fabrics and threads!

  369. Sharon Crennen says:

    I have made monochrome quilts but not really a true neutral quilt.
    That should be my next step.

  370. Judith says:

    I have very little experience using neutral only fabrics. I have a project I have been working on for some time, darker neutrals than these. Challenging.

  371. carmen mullins says:

    I took a sampler class many years ago using all neutrals. It was a wonderful class and the quilt blocks were beautiful. I would like to do this again. Thank you for the opportunity to win a prize. 🙂

  372. Janet says:

    I haven’t used this technique yet, but would love to try it!

  373. Karon says:

    I love someone else’s neutral quilt, but I have to have lots of color in my quilts.

  374. edie troyer says:

    My daughter wanted a neutral quilt for their bed as a gift for her college graduation. I had never worked with neutrals before so I got my collection and had a wider range than she wanted so I pared it down even more. It was a challenge to work just with value but it taught me a whole lot about value. Each block was different chosen because there was some connection to her and hubbie’s lives. I appliqued a basket with a large flower arrangement in it in the middle making it a medallion quilt. It was definitely a challenge, but worth the effort. Your fabrics are beautiful.

  375. Tricia Copeland says:

    A neutral quilt is on my bucket list! I recently retired and am slowly working on some sewing projects that have been sitting for way too long. I’d love to work with these gorgeous fabrics and threads. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

  376. Charlene F Waters says:

    what to say i want them all

  377. RareBird says:

    Never made a neutral quilt but I would like to! Thanks for the giveaway!

  378. Tina says:

    I haven’t done one yet but would love to. Thanks!

  379. Barbara McCune says:

    I have not done a neutral quilt yet but have been collecting grays and whites to use in a quilt.

  380. Dee G. says:

    I haven’t yet made a neutral quilt but keep day dreaming about the ones I want to make.
    Thank you!

  381. Sally Jerney says:

    I’ve got one block made up on my design wall. I’ve been inspired by my recent cleanup of my scrap bins. I have always wanted to make an entire guilt in neutrals and now I have started!

  382. Rosemary Newman says:

    I have been wanting to make a neutral quilt. Most of mine have been high-contrast.

  383. Jan says:

    I’ve never made a neutral color quilt and I think it would be a challenge, but an interesting challenge.

  384. Michelle D says:

    Is blue neutral? I’ve made many!

  385. caroline Rohrer says:

    A neutral quilt is on my bucket list

  386. Penny Dominici says:

    I made my first neutral only quilt last year. The pattern was Big Star Quilt from Reets Rags to Stitches. I used hand dyed Osnaberg fabrics and yarn dyed woven Japanese fabrics. What a treat, lots of texture coming from the woven fabrics. I used wool batting and was very pleased with the results. Usually I use riotous colors so this was quite a switch for me.

  387. Nancy Koc says:

    What I liked the most was the play and nuance of neutrals on neutrals and the many depths of color that actually come through, even though on the surface it all appears to be one tome… :))

  388. Diane Richter says:

    I am now making a neutral quilt with a beautiful ombre fabric that begins with a medium charcoal, transitioning to a browned grey and then to a vanilla cream. It has lines suggesting leaves and flowers. I hope this wall quilt will convey the sense of calmness I feel when I see these colors. I would use the Fade Out collection in a quilt with a modern esthetic. Thank you for this opportunity.

  389. Linda Kay says:

    I am so looking forward to doing a neutral quilt but life has been topsy turvy lately. Now I am settled and getting organised it is near the top of my.bucket list. I have always loved bright dramatic colours but I really feel the need for something peaceful and beautiful in my life and I know a neutral quilt will help fulfil that desire, especially with fabrics like these. They are stunning yet soothing at the same time.

  390. Sarah Sheckells says:

    Just found a messenger bag pattern. This material would be super in that project!

  391. Cheryl Braswell says:

    It’s hard to resist the urge to “brighten it up” or make it more exciting by adding some color.

  392. Judi D'Accardo says:

    I have not as yet made a neutral only quilt, I always admire them and would love to make one for myself.

  393. J Woodburn says:

    I have all the fabric to make my quilt. I’m trying to decide on the best design.

  394. Sylvia says:

    Never have made a neutral quilt.

  395. Rosemary says:

    Love that Quilt fabric shop in Japan. I especially like the simplicity and design of Japanese fabrics.

  396. Steffani McChesney says:

    My small quilt group (9 members) chose a pattern, then exchanged 15 neutral fat quarters each and made the bed-sized quilt. Even though we all made the same pattern the quilts each showed our distinctive individual styles in the way we used the fabric. The result is one of my favorite quilts.

  397. Cheri says:

    Love this collection of fabrics! Thank you for this giveaway.

  398. Colleen says:

    I have made two very different ( neutral) quilts. Found the process challenging but really rewarding. They are two of my very favorite quilts. The first was all cream, white, ivory, tan – pieced blocks with a large sandhill crane in the center. It truly is a wonderful quilt.
    The second one was a labyrinth quilt with all shades of gray. As I went along I really wanted to throw in some Color, but resisted the urge. It was the most difficult one I’ve made. I ( being a fearless rainbow child) find it to be challenging and inspiring to work with neutral fabrics exclusively I believe they are some of the most beautiful quilts ever.

  399. Rebecca says:

    Love my all neutrals quilt I made four years ago. Have it hanging in my living room.. it’s still my favorite. Planning to make another one …

  400. Dianne Birnie says:

    I loved the effect I got with only using neutral colours (beiges and dark brown). I did a study with poppies on a hexagon background. It was a challenge to get the placement of the poppies correct on the background so they would show up. Like I said, a challenge!!

  401. Kate Meyers says:

    Lovely and so elegant! Who wouldn’t fall in love with this fabric line.

  402. Amy Wilder says:

    I’d love to do a neutral-only quilt, especially after recently learning about the taupe quilts of Yoko Saito. So inspiring.

  403. joan brown says:

    Lovely site, thank you.

  404. Ginny Leber says:

    Last year I made a throw sized quilt with many different cream colored batik. It was a log cabin design and I love it so much. So subtle, so soft feeling.

    I would love to win this beautiful fabric from Studio 37. Oh please, oh please, let me win……

    Thank you for the opportunity.

  405. CHARLOTTE KEY says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt, I think its about time I did.

  406. jenny says:

    I love neutral quilts…oh boy did I collect the low volume fabrics a few years ago….I find I am most happy with the results when I add a pop of color somewhere…even if just the binding. Thanks for a chance at this great giveaway.

  407. I am pretty into color but did do an embroidery in neutral and was really pleased. I think a neutral quilt would be a nice addition to the living room.

  408. Barbara Simpson says:

    Wonderful, soothing and relaxing.

  409. Kat says:

    I haven’t yet, too drawn to bright colors when I’m buying fabric but I know I’d love a neutral one for contrast!

  410. Quilting Jeannie Zimmerman says:

    Those are beautiful fabrics and I would love to make a quilt with them. Of course, always Aurifil. I am making my first neutral only quilt (with mint green squares) from soft coastal blue, pastel gray, soft tan, and pastel green. I love the calm shades. Quilting now, so hope I sleep deeply under it. Thank you. I would love to win.

  411. Jeannie Zimmerman says:

    Beautiful fabrics for a neutral pallet . I have made one and love the look. But my fabrics were not as special as these. Thank you.

  412. Susan says:

    What a great giveaway! I’d love to win one, thanks for the chance. I have started two neutral quilts, but somewhere along the way, one of them got red dropped into it! The other one still has a sort of neutral background, but the embellishing threads became darker and darker until I can’t say it’s neutral any longer! A hard thing for me to do. I like all four of these fabrics, though, and do use Aurifil floss when I can find it.

  413. Christine Gross says:

    While I have made only one neutral quilt, I am especially drawn to them. I like that you notice the stitching as much as the fabric. I am forever asking friends, and new stitching pals…do you prefer the fabric selection or the stitching selection when looking at or making quilts.

  414. Gloria Cotten says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt, but these beautiful fabrics are making me want to do so!

  415. Connie Bales says:

    I love working with neutrals.

  416. Ann Hudson says:

    I took a quilting class using several gradients of greys plus one other gradient in a pale color, it is harder than it looks to get a good design! But I had fun playing with different effects of the neutral color. Thanks for the fantastic give-a-way!

  417. Jude Masten says:

    Definitely on my to-do list.

  418. Laura F. says:

    This will be my first experience making a neutral-only quilt. I can’t wait to try it.

  419. Renee L Buckler says:

    I have not yet had the discipline to include only neutrals in a quilt. But it is time to try!

  420. SUSAN LOMBARD says:

    Absolutely Beautiful!

  421. ReneeS says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt.These fabrics and threads look so clean and bright. I think a neutral quilt on my bed would be wonderful. (Our cat would probably like it too.)

  422. Laima says:

    I usually work with bright saturated colors but, last year I decided to make a neutral colored quilt and absolutely loved it. Now I am incorporating one color at a time with the neutrals, just a bit!

  423. Susan Mogan says:

    My experience making a neutral quilt is that it can be more difficult than making one with color. Value contrasts and flows become a critical component of the design, and making an interesting design without color requires much more focus on the principles and elements of good design. That said, if you pull it off well, the ending result can be absolutely stunning!

  424. Barbara Snider says:

    I would love to win this beautiful fabric!

  425. Judy Kronmeyer says:

    Made one in a class and still use it and love it because it matches my neutral decor.

  426. Carol Kuse says:

    I have never made a neutral only quilt, but after seeing such beautiful quilts I am mulling some ideas. Thank you for the chance to win such beautiful fabric and thread.

  427. Julia Bernstein says:

    no experience, but would like to learn

  428. MaryAnn Premoe says:

    i would love to fade out.

  429. Suzanne Caflisch says:

    My experience has been the challenge of creating movement and depth to the quilt. At first I was adamant about using only white or beige, but now, after more experimenting and finishes, I love the richness of using both together.

  430. Marie Easterling says:

    I’ve struggled with neutral only. I think it’ll require a ‘surrender’ of some type where I give up being directed by matchy-matchy! The prizes in this offer are just beautiful and worthy catalysts for surrendering!

  431. Diane Beavers says:

    I’ve not created a neutral only quilt or piece of art. Wow it’s so soothing to see just black white silver grey palette. Thank you so much

  432. miaplustwo says:

    I’ve never made a neutral quilt but I’m sure it would look so lovely!

  433. Wendy Johnston says:

    I made a neutral only quilt with a lovely neutral tropical print fabric. I made the quilt for my husband, and he loves it.

  434. Tamie says:

    I haven’t made an all neutral quilt yet but it sounds like it would be fun to try.

  435. Caroline Emmons says:

    I have never made a neutrals only quilt. I have just learned how to do doodle quilts and am not sure the would lend themselves to just neutrals.

  436. Amanda Best says:

    I haven’t made a neutral only quilt, yet. The fabrics that usually catch my eye are large scale floral prints, but I would love to mix these great neutrals with some modern bright fabrics i have.

  437. Pam says:

    A neutral quilt is on my bucket list. I love the calm of these colors! Thanks for this lovely giveaway!

  438. Sylvia says:

    I just finished a gray and black quilt using the orange peel pattern in large scale for my daughter. The pallette was her request. The challenge was that there are many different tones to grays (blue to light silver) and to blacks (bluish cast, flat, shiny) and finding the balance among them. Thread choice for quilting was a major decision – black that faded into the background but stood out on the gray; a shiny gray that would pop against the black but fade into some of the gray peels; flat gray, dark gray….. In the end I found a medium flat gray that did not fade into any of the gray peels and was not a stark contrast to the black. This quilt required more thought and choices than any brightly colored one I have made.

  439. Sherry says:

    Just love your fabrics! Have not made a neutrals-only quilt yet, but I weave and have enjoyed weaving several white-on-white and white-on-offwhite pieces! Thanks for having a giveaway!

  440. Jan Beckert says:

    I’ve always wanted to make an all-neutral quilt, but the closest I’ve come is working on a taupe-shades quilt with a little color.

  441. Dawn Tenneson says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt. Not sure on how to pick fabric to make one. I love the Japanese fabric though and I’m sure the beautiful designs would be stunning!

  442. Martha says:

    I love neutral light gray scrappy quilts, but inevitably am compelled to add a pop of color which I usually regret after the quilt is bound! It’s on the bucket list to resist the color pop urge and complete a neutral quilt.

  443. Ann says:

    I have not yet made a neutral quilt but I see it happening soon!

  444. Marcia says:

    I haven’t made a neutral quilt yet but love the fabric.

  445. Betsy says:

    I made one baby quilt that was neutral.. It did have some very pale greens it it. Funny I was thinking newborn eyes needed to adjust slowly to all the colors of their new world. But it seems everyone else gifted the baby bright colors…Anyway I like the neutral quilt.

  446. Jody says:

    A full experience with entirely neutral quilt colors sounds calming and beautiful. I have done a very neutral background mix with a pop of color off center. Different energy in each. The visual attention to detail in background patterns is what makes it come alive.

  447. Kaye says:

    I have not made a neutral quilt but have made a table runner in all neutrals using the Spicy Spiral pattern. It was fun selecting all of the neutrals and seeing how they all worked together.

  448. Kathie says:

    Hi! I’ve never made one but only because I’ve never made a quilt for myself!

  449. marlene barkley says:

    I have made one neutral quilt and the trouble was staying with the neutral and not veering into the light beige and onto the brown. Very difficult to remain totally neutral.
