Gray Matters Full Size Quilt - A Graduation Gift for My Niece

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I've finally completed the graduation quilt for my niece.  It started out with only the Gray Matters fabric collection, but I ended up adding other yellows and grays from my LQS for more variety.  I found the inspiration for this quilt HERE.

I'm fairly certain I got the colors just right for my niece.  We were at a baby shower together recently, and she gave the mom-to-be a baby blanket in these exact colors, polka dots and all!!

I couldn't get a good picture of the loopy quilting.

I love the colours. I never thought of a grey quilt as sunny but this one has sunshine written all over it.

I just love this one! I have my stack of yellows and grays all ready to cut and have been sidetracked by two other quilts. This has really inspired me to get a move on with my yellow and gray one!

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
